Defining Our Future

May 4, 2012

Dear MPLS Parents and Students,

We hope all parents have been receiving the information you need to plan for the next academic year.  The surrounding school districts are interested in responding to your questions, providing tours and personalized visits to their buildings. 

Also, be sure to contact the school district your child will attend so the district can plan accordingly for their staffing needs.  For example, if your child will be attending school in the Cedar Falls school district, please contact the administrative office so they can inform you which school (building) your child will attend and they can make staffing plans.            

Cedar Falls contact: Carrie DeBerg, phone: 319-553-2422

Waterloo contact: Cora Turner, phone: 319-433-1801

All transition efforts continue to move forward.  We have been grateful for the support of the MPLS administrators, faculty and staff, and the surrounding school districts as we continue to help students and families prepare for their next academic year.  For updates, please refer to:

As always, the school counselors (Ms. Dieken and Ms. Struck) are available to visit with you and your child about the transition of changing schools.  Please contact the counselors with any questions, as they are ready to listen and address any questions or concerns. Ph: 319-273-2185 

Reminder - for the 2012-13 year –

All student academic records will be maintained at the UNI Registrar’s Office starting this summer.  All websites will be updated to keep everyone informed of who to contact for transcripts.

You may recall from a previous email this Q&A from Cedar Falls:

Can you provide parents with a date that they will know which elementary their child will attend?

Attendance center decisions will be made by May 15th at the latest. Parents will be notified as soon as the decisions are made.

*Enrollment paperwork is completed at school districts now - at NO cost, and this paperwork does NOT preclude an open enrollment application.

*Registration paperwork is completed in August for school districts – families pay registration fees. 

The next email update will be sent by May 11, 2012.  Thank you.
