Dear MPLS Parents and Students,

As the school year draws to  close, we wish all students and families a good summer and successful year in the fall. 

As a reminder, please be sure to contact the school district your child will attend next fall so the district can plan accordingly for their staffing needs.  Area schools need to plan for hiring their teachers and knowing your child’s future plans are important.  For example, if your child will be attending school in the Cedar Falls school district, please contact the administrative office so they can inform you which school (building) your child will attend and they can make staffing plans.            

      Cedar Falls contact: Carrie DeBerg, phone: 319-553-2422  

      Waterloo contact: Cora Turner, phone: 319-433-1801

All transition efforts continue to move forward.  For updates, please refer to:  http://www.uni.edu/program-changes/malcolm-price-laboratory-school

As always, the school counselors (Ms. Dieken and Ms. Struck) are available to visit with you and your child about the transition of changing schools.  Please contact the counselors with any questions, as they are ready to listen and address any questions or concerns. Ph: 319-273-2185  

Reminder - for the 2012-13 year

All student academic records will be maintained at the UNI Registrar’s Office starting this summer.  All websites will be updated to keep everyone informed of who to contact for transcripts. 

You may recall from a previous email this Q&A from Cedar Falls.

Can you provide parents with a date that they will know which elementary their child will attend?

Attendance center decisions will be made by May 15th at the latest. Parents will be notified as soon as the decisions are made. 

The next email update will be sent by May 18, 2012.  Thank you.
