It would be nice if the school put some information on the website. No meeting minutes since December. I would like to be able to see what type of expenses i may be looking at.

I would volunteer but doubt the school district would grant me access to their website. I would think it would be a security issue. Besides, I am sure there is a staff member that is being PAID to keep it up to date.

Thank you! Do you know what the fee is? Will they offer bus service for the kids that are only going half day? I still can't find school board meeting minutes past December 2012.

A lot of information was given at the Kindergarten Round up meeting a couple weeks ago. I don't think bussing is provided for half day though.

Full day has been added. If you don't want to do full day then you have to pick up your child. The children will have to be given 1 hour of quiet time in the afternoon- by law. I hope this wasn't added as a "daycare". My 2 older boys didn't have full day and are excelling in school, both academically and socially. I hope this decision is a good one.

There is no law requiring quiet time. I teach kindergarten and we went to full day about 5 years ago. We started with about 20 min of quiet time and we now don't have it at all. There isn't enough time to do what the state requires and have quiet time. The kids are fine. The start of the year can be a little tough on a few, but most are fine.

Butters reads Topix so the board meeting minutes should be up there as soon as he sees your post. If you are really concerned, call Wilson Creek and tell them to get the minutes and the info. on the website. There are minutes posted up to April 2012 here: http://www.manhattan114.org/district/boe_docs...
