STUDENT OVERFLOW INFORMATION

    Due to the high number of students in your child’s grade, there is a possibility that your child may be overflowed to another school. This procedure will take place according to Board Policy 5116 under School Attendance Boundaries, which states, “the Superintendent or designee may place some students in a school outside of their attendance area in order to alleviate overcrowding. Parents/guardians of students who are attending schools outside of their attendance area shall be notified of the school their child will be attending as soon as possible. If available, transportation shall be provided for such students.” The District understands that this transition may be difficult for some parents and students. But, please be assured that your child’s educational needs as well as his/her safety are the District’s number one priority.

    Once a determination has been made, you will receive notification from the school site as to when the transition will take place and transportation will begin. Each day, your child will be bussed from his or her school site to a site with available space in his/her particular grade. As space becomes available at your child’s home school, your child will return to his/her site of attendance.

    If you have any questions, please contact our office at 399-5041.
