Temporary Closure of Northside Elementary

The Northside school community will complete the current school year as planned. As a result of the Board’s approval, the Northside Elementary community will be absorbed by Ruby Young and The Meadows Elementary starting in the 2019-2020 school year. Tentatively, Northside is expected to remain closed for two years at which time the district will assess reopening the campus. 

To support this transition, the district has drafted a revision to the elementary attendance zones and will provide an update regarding the revised zones pending Board approval.

The week prior to the April 15, 2019, Special Called Board Meeting during which the Board approved this matter, district administrators held meetings with campus staff and parents to communicate the plan to temporarily close Northside Elementary. 

As a district, we understand the concerns related to temporarily taking a campus offline and aim to be intentional in ensuring a high-quality educational experience for every student regardless of their assigned campus.

We will continue to provide updates regarding student reassignments, opportunities to select an alternate campus through the district’s annual transfer window and other information related to this matter.
