Welcome to South View Elementary!
Message from the Superintendent: July 2014
Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of Muncie Community Schools:
While your students are home on summer break, we want to help you with your planning for the 2014-2015 School Year. As you may recall, due to extreme Property Tax losses within our school district, the Muncie Community Schools (MCS) is faced with a very severe shortage of funds to operate yellow school buses. MCS conducted a special referendum election in November 2013, to try and generate future transportation funding. That referendum was defeated. MCS petitioned the state for a waiver on the 3-year notice required to completely cease yellow bus service. That waiver was denied. The socio-economic demographics of our community make a very compelling case for the need for yellow school bus service. MCS has never questioned the need for this service, adequate funding remains the issue.
MCS recently redesigned and rebid our bus routes for 2014-2015 and thereafter. This was done to create some efficiencies in operations and lower the overall cost of operating school buses. While the distance from school requirements did not change, new route structures will cause most former routes to be longer with more students on each bus.
Please reference the link to the map for your child's school to see if you are in the 14/15 walk zone or the bus zone. You may contact the school bus service provider, M & M Bus Co., at 765-282-1717 beginning August 1, 2014, for more specific bus stop information and route times.
Thank you for your assistance and support as we offer excellent educational opportunities to our future community leaders.
M. Tim Heller, Superintendent, Muncie Community Schools
Dear South View families,
With the end of the school year fast approaching, we would like to encourage all students to continue to exhibit excellent behavior at school, on the bus, and on field trips. We know that everyone is very excited about summer, but it is important that students have a positive attitude and a positive presence during the last weeks of school. We look forward to seeing all students and staff ending our school year strong and successful!
Sincerely — Mrs. Kara Miller
