Start times work continues
As the School Board continues to work towards a start times decision this spring, a transportation consultant asked the District to consider adjusting some parameters. The Board agreed to support flexibility with the following parameters if another option can be created.
This spring, the District will continue to work with the consultant and bring updates to future School Board meetings. Communication and information about start times will continue to be shared with families through e-newsletters, at School board meetings and updated at www.moundsviewschools.org/starttimes.
This month, the School Board approved the 2018-1019 school-year calendar. The calendar contains no significant changes to traditional breaks including MEA break, Thanksgiving break, winter break and spring break. Visit the Calendars page at www.moundsviewschools.org/calendars to see the current calendar and the next two school-year calendars.

In the meantime, families often have questions about spring tests.
