For stability purposes, it will be helpful to keep continuing students at Northwoods. For example, it took my ward a while to adjust to Northwoods. It will be in his academic interest to stay at Northwoods for fourth and fifth grades. Thank you.

Due to the growth in Morrisville, this change (assigning some students from Northwoods ES to Pleasant Grove ES) is very helpful all around.

1) It reduces crowding at a capped school (Northwoods ES); 2) Students reassigned to Pleasant Grove ES will attend a school that is much much closer to their homes. (i.e., shorter bus rides or car pools); and 3) Reduces strain on transportation system. So, this has multiple wins – reducing crowding at capped school, much better proximity, and shorter bus route at a time when there is strain on the transportation system. A TRIPLE WIN! Excellent.
