    START TIME 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.

     

    FOOD DRIVE LATER THIS MONTH

    The Highview Student Council is planning a food drive the week of March 27-31called, “Fill the Cart.” Students and staff are asked to bring in non-perishable food items or paper goods during lunch.  Each grade will try to “fill their cart.”  The food drive will be a grade-level competition to see which grade can donate the most. The winning grade will get a prize during lunch.
