FYI: Elementary school reassignment for two new developments

On June 14, 2016, the Osseo School Board approved a new elementary school assignment for homes that will be built in two future developments, as follows:

  • Begin Oaks: Oak View Elementary, 6710 East Fish Lake Road, Maple Grove;
  • Hamlets at Rush Creek: Rush Creek Elementary, 8801 County Road 101, Maple Grove

The new elementary school assignments are effective immediately.

The elementary reassignments will help address growing concerns about available space at Basswood (the current assigned school for both developments), which has experienced a continuing trend of high enrollment. Reassigning areas before they become developed minimizes disruption to families. 

The change affects only the elementary school assignment for these two developments; there is no change to the middle school and high school assignments (Maple Grove Middle School and Maple Grove Senior High, respectively). No other areas within the Basswood attendance area are being considered for reassignment at this time.

We can help!

Stop by for a visit!

The best way for your clients to learn if a school is a good fit for their child/ren is to visit the school. Your clients can call any of our schools directly to request a tour.

Check an address

Use our online school locator or check elementary, middle school and senior high attendance area (boundary) maps to determine the school assignment for a particular address. Please note that the two elementary magnet schools do not have attendance areas; separate application is required for enrollment in those schools.

Not within ISD 279 boundaries, but interested in open enrolling into our school district? No problem! Osseo accepts open enrolled students in grades K-12. Just have your client give our Enrollment Center a call at 763.585.7350 for open enrollment information, or visit the Enrollment section of our website.
