Pella Community School Board Approves Changes For Fall

Tuesday, the Pella Community School Board approved changes in policy, that will take effect in the fall. Second graders will be allowed to ride their bikes to school, which was previously only allowed for third grade students and above. Also standard changes were made to student handbooks at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels. A ten cent daily increase was also approved for school lunches across the board. This measure was passed to keep in compliance with USDA funding, and reimbursement requirements. The next school board meeting is July 15th at 4:30 pm.
