Boundary Change for Moonstone PS
Currently, Moonstone PS in Oro-Medonte (Moonstone), ON only goes to grade 3. Kids are then bused to Coldwater for grades 4-8 and then to high school in Orillia. Issues: 1) The school board trustee that we vote for in Moonstone is NOT the trustee for Coldwater or Orillia, so our vote becomes irrelevant; 2) our kids have 2 transitions and attend 3 different schools; 3) the bus ride to Orillia is longer than to Elmvale; 4) our kids will go from a small, rural community to attending a very large high school in a city.
The high school in Elmvale was recently renovated and now goes from grade 7-12. If Moonstone PS was restored back to grades JK-6 (as it was until downgraded 3 yrs ago), and our kids were then sent to Elmvale High School, they would have 1 school transition, stay in a small community setting, have a closer bus ride, and maintain the same SCDSB trustee so our vote counts!
