Class Assignment Letters

We feel teacher placement for students at FLE is very important.  With many students to consider, our staff, along with FVE Staff put a tremendous amount of thought and work into creating classrooms that are balanced in regards to behavior, academic skills, special needs and many other things.  We feel it's important to have input from families on classroom selection.  Due to the many dynamics that go into creating and balancing classroom rosters, we cannot guarantee that every teacher request will end up in the classroom of your choice.  The request form deadline has already past.  

Look for the class assignment letters to be mailed to your home around the week of August 18th. 

Upcoming Community Meetings

As most of you are aware, last May the voters of our school district decided not to approve our school district's bond request.  Despite our best efforts to reach out to the community and provide information, the majority of voters apparently felt that this bond was not something they could support.

Our school district will be holding several community meetings to solicit community input about these issues.  This will be the chance fro member of the public, including parents, students and district staff to express their thoughts as the board considers a possible seocnd bond proposal.  

The schedule for these meetings will be held at the following elementary schools on:

7/28-Columbus at 5:30-6:30pm
7/28-Forest Lake at 6:30-7:30pm
7/29-Lino Lakes at 6-7pm
7/30-Scandia at 6-7pm
7/31-Linwood at 6-7pm
7/31-Central Montessori at 6:30-7:30pm
8/4-Forest View at 6-7pm
8/5-Wyoming at 6:30-7:30pm

Thanks to everyone for your ongoing support of our district, and hopefully we will see you at one of these meetings. 


Change of Transportation Forms

If your child will be picked up or dropped off at a different address, other than your current home address, you will need to pick up a Change of Transportation Form from FLE Office.  Please complete this form, as it needs to be filled out EACH year if your child goes to daycare or whatever. Turn in the completed form to FLE office no later than Thurday, August 28th. If we receive it any later, the Transportation Department may not be able to have bussing in place for the first few days of school.  

The Transportation Department will be mailing out a card with all the bussing information (time/place of pick-up/drop-off) about the last week of August. Please be sure to read this carefully as soon as you receive it.  If any information on it is not correct, please contact them at 651-982-8198.
