The District notified families in the following subdivisions that their residence was affected for a boundary change to Fairmount Elementary for next year and beyond: Wilshire Valley, Sun River Village, Sugarwood, McClay Village, McClay Meadows, McClay Gardens, Heather Ridge, Tanglewood, Hi Point Acres, Celtic, Waterside Crossing and Bella Vista.
Why the change in boundaries to attend Fairmount Elementary? We have reached our maximum classroom capacity at Henderson. We do not have enough classrooms to support the students we currently have. We have seven kindergarten classrooms this year. One of those rooms is in our old computer lab (so we have no computer lab). Those 7 classrooms of kids will be going to first grade and we do not have classroom space to accommodate this many students.
Who is going to Fairmount next year? Any current kindergartner and pre-schooler who does not have an older sibling at Henderson (currently) will be moved to Fairmount Elementary. We know this is not an ideal situation and are going to be sad to say good-bye to these students and families.
Current kindergartners and pre-schoolers in the above mentioned subdivisions with siblings currently attending Henderson have the choice to stay at Henderson, so as not to split a family. These students will have bus transportation through the 2019-2020 school year. After the 2019-2020 school year there will be no Henderson buses transporting kids in those subdivisions. By the time your current kindergartner is in 5th grade they will not have bus transportation to Henderson.
Current 1st -4th grade students in the identified subdivisions have the option to stay at Henderson or go to Fairmount. Bus transportation will be provided to these students through the 2019-2020 school year. So, if you have a current 1st grader who stays at Henderson they will have the option to ride the bus every year they are attending school at Henderson.
