Kindergarten numbers are growing in Sheridan County School District 2.
Elementary Education Director Scott Stults said 341 children are enrolled for kindergarten classes in the district. He said 310 children were enrolled when kindergarten started last year, and enrollments for this coming year are still being accepted.
His presentation on kindergarten was part of Monday night's meeting of the district's trustees. In other business, trustees awarded the bid for milk for the year to the low bidder, Food Services of America, and authorized replacement of two school buses. They also approved routes and non-public road travel for the buses.
School Superintendent Craig Dougherty said students in the district's two alternative schools, Fort Mackenzie High School and The Wright Place, will attend classes in the old Highland Park School building this year. Classes have been in the Early Building on the grounds of Sheridan Junior High School, but the district is seeking funding from the state to build a new facility for the alternative schools. The district also is seeking state funds to renovate Sagebrush Elementary School.
