Hello District #8 Family! This is just a reminder about the Information and Question & Answer Session regarding the facility struggles and needs associated with our every growing student enrollment. The Q&A Meeting is tonight at 6:30 in the cafeteria at Missouri Ridge School. We hope to see you there!
District 1 and District 8 are interested in working together as two independent districts to address our community’s growing enrollment and we want to know what you think. Please follow this link to participate: https://my.thoughtexchange.com/#765787583
As a result of our large and unexpected increase in enrollment and the time constraints associated with it, we will have to make the following changes beginning on Monday, September 10th : - 4th & 5th Grade Class Changes The 5th Grade classes at Missouri Ridge have grown beyond reasonable capacity and we are going to have to split the two classes in to three classes. To accommodate this move, we will have to move a class of 4th graders to Garden Valley. Mrs. Herland will be the 4th Grade teacher at Garden Valley. Mrs. Wetzel will be the new 5th grade teacher at Missouri Ridge. Parents of students affected by the 4th and 5th grade class switches will be contacted directly. - School Start & End Times Start and end times at Garden Valley and Round Prairie will change to: 8:10am Start Time 3:05pm Dismissal Time If you have any questions regarding these changes, please contact your school’s principal.
