Mitchell School Board Votes To Consolidate Two Bus Routes

(MITCHELL) – The Mitchell School board approved the consolidation of two bus routes. Routes #15 and Route #20 will now be combined into one bus route.

Between the two routes, 10-12 students were riding Route #15, and around 12-15 were riding Route #20. With the resignation of Shannon Terrell, the transportation director recommended the changes be made.  The board approved the request 5-0.

The Eighth graders will be going on a field trip to Chicago to visit area museums. They will go on the trip on May 8th and May 9th, 2020.

The Mitchell Dance Team will be going to Orlando, Florida after the Dance team qualified to compete in the National Dance Competition. This competition will take place from March 5-9, 2020.
