Transition Update- March 9, 2012

Dear MPLS Parents and Students,

An online school interest survey is available for all families to complete for each child by March 12, to indicate the school(s) your child is considering attending next fall.  MPLS principals and guidance counselors will utilize this information to plan for future transition events that will be held:

March 20, - K-5 grades, 6 pm meeting in MPLS Auditorium – contact: Jim Stichter 273-2232

March 22, - 6-11 grades, 4-7 pm at MPLS - opportunity to meet individually with area school representatives – contact: Josh Henriksen 273-2954

  • These events will be excellent opportunities for Parents and Students to receive information for next fall.

Reminder regarding open enrollment information:

Students who choose to attend their resident school district or a private or parochial school do not need to complete open enrollment forms.  Students who choose to attend a public school district outside their home school district have 45 calendar days from March 1, which is April 14, to complete open enrollment forms with the receiving school district.  However, because April 14 is a Saturday, the deadline is Monday, April 16.

Waterloo and Cedar Falls school districts also sent correspondence to families the week of February 27 regarding enrollment options and plans for next fall.

If you have any additional questions during this transition, please contact MPLS at 319.273.2514.  MPLS faculty and staff want to provide personalized information for you to address your questions and assist you in this transition.
