Back to school

Siuslaw Elementary Principal Mike Harklerode says he expects about the same number of students this year as there were last year in grades K through five.

Mike Harklerode – “Based on last year’s number we should be right around the 600 mark.  We’ve had more students so far.   A good number, about 30 more students now have registered for this upcoming school year but, again, we haven’t yet had our list of drops and families who have moved away.”(click here to listen to quote)

Because of the amount of turnover in student populations this time of year, Harklerode says class lists won’t be finalized until Friday, September 2nd.  New students that have not been registered yet can be signed up at the school Tuesday, August 30th, between 8:30 and noon.
