|School superintendent to host Cedar Canyon parents|
|February 27, 2014 Jerry Purvis|
Gering School Superintendent Bob Hastings will meet with Cedar Canyon School parents at the school on Thursday, March 6 at 6:30 p.m. to hear their concerns about the school’s attendance model.
Last year, Cedar Canyon was changed from a K-6 elementary to a K-4, with 5th and 6th grade students attending Lincoln Elementary.
The meeting will focus on parent concerns and will help determine which grade levels will attend Cedar Canyon in the future. This past year, several parents have objected to the class structure, especially if one child attends Cedar Canyon and another goes to Lincoln Elementary.
Input from the meeting will be forwarded to the school board’s facilities committee for consideration. Also, with the completion of the kindergarten enrollment period, the district is looking at how many students they have in the elementary schools in order to determine how many classes will be needed.
Cedar Canyon Principal Mary Kay Haun said the informal meeting is to open up communication between the district and the parents to help determine their best options for future school years.
