The D60 school board changed three elementary school attendance zones for students from Hellbeck Elementary.
As part of the School Realignment Project, the board voted to close Hellbeck by June 30. Recently, the board also voted to add a 6th grade class to Carlile Elementary.
The former Hellbeck attendance area has now been restructured with three neighboring schools: Columbian, Highland Park, and Beulah Heights.
As part of the process, Hellbeck fifth graders will be transferred to Roncalli Middle School this fall in an effort to minimize the number of transitions for students.
All other Hellbeck students has been assigned new school attendance areas:
55 students- Columbian Elementary
31 students-Highland Park Elementary
94 students-Beulah Heights Elementary
38 5th grade students to Roncalli Middle School
According to a press release from District 60 the geographic realignment of the attendance areas for this fall are as follows:
