South Washington County Schools

Valley Crossing Elementary joins South Washington County Schools July 1

Valley Crossing Elementary School is now owned and operated by South Washington County Schools. What was a 20-year tri-district partnership has concluded. Northeast Metropolitan School District 916 recently completed a video sharing the history of the school.

For the 2016-17 school year, the district plans to maintain the program and opportunities that are in place at Valley Crossing, including the current multiage programming and the addition of Gateway, the district’s Gifted Education program for students in grades 3-5. The school’s principal is Dr. Lela Olson.

The transition process continues with a variety of parent and student opportunities taking place to prepare for the 2016-17 year when the Gateway program will transition into Valley Crossing, and also for the fall of 2017 when new attendance boundary families will join the school community.

As part of the transition, the phone numbers of the school have changed to become part of the school district’s “425” prefix. The main office number for Valley Crossing Elementary School is 651-425-7500.

More information about Valley Crossing and updates about the school are available on the district’s website under Hot Topics – Valley Crossing.
