Follow-Up to New Elementary School #42 Meeting - Wednesday, November 24, 2010
There was a community meeting held at Fox Ridge Middle School on 11/15/10 to discuss the new elementary school that will be built next door to our clubhouse. The principal of Coyote Hills had these comments from the meeting:

"Hello Everyone,

I want to forward you the powerpoint presentation on the timeline of Elementary #42. The discussion at Fox Ridge mainly focused on the construction time frame, the process of deciding boundary lines, and the plan for Coyote Hills in the 2011-2012 school year with increased student enrollment. What you will read in the powerpoint as far our school is concerned multiple options are open at this time. No decision has been made and we are still brainstorming ideas.

If you hear discussions in the neighborhood please feel free to email or call me with any questions, clarifications, or comments. I will do my best to provide you with answers or guide you to the appropriate district personnel who can help you. This is both an anxious and exciting time for our school. I ask that we do our best to stick to the facts and not generate any undue anxiety or frustrations by spreading hearsay or rumors. I will continually keep you updated on the latest information and decisions that will impact our school and most importantly your families.

One particular item that has been brought to my attention is the idea of an intermediate (grades 3-5) school and a primary (grades K - 2) school. This is not an option the district is pursuing.

I hope all of you have a happy and safe Thanksgiving. I know I have much to be thankful for this year.
