    Last call!  Any student interested in the Immersion Weekend at Concordia Language Villages - there are a few remaining spots for the district that are now open - first come first serve!  Chippewa filled their allocated spots VERY quickly but now there are a few spaces remaining- sign up through Community Education.  

    Registration deadline is Monday, March 13, or when all available spots are taken, whichever comes first.  Dates of the Immersion Weekend are May 11-14.  See the Community Ed website for more details.

     

    COMMUNITY ED

    This weekend is your last chance to get signed up for Swimming (Mondays-Thursdays; March 6-April 6).  Spots are filling up fast, so make sure and register soon!  Have your student grab a paper registration from the Greeter's Desk or go to the Community Ed website to register through FeePay.

     

    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.

    • Some elementary schools and middle schools might have slightly different start times within their levels.

    • For efficiency, the entire fleet of different-sized buses might be used more creatively, depending on neighborhood densities or traffic patterns.

    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.
