Dear Team Chesterfield families,
Earlier this fall, we provided you information about a redistricting proposal associated with the opening of a new, replacement Matoaca Elementary School. This redistricting is necessary in order to optimize classroom space and address student enrollment at other schools.
The new Matoaca Elementary, under construction on the site of the soon-to-be-former Matoaca Middle west campus, is designed to accommodate 750 students. Currently, there are fewer than 400 students attending Matoaca Elementary.
Chesterfield County Public Schools will hold two information meetings about revisions to the proposed redistricting:
Under a revised redistricting proposal that will be considered by the School Board in December, these neighborhoods would transfer from Ettrick Elementary to Matoaca Elementary: Branch and Evans Estate, Bright Oaks Estates, Chesdin Heights, Crafton Heights, Deboer, Deere, Flintshire, Gateway Farms Apartments, Hickory Hollow, L.P.D. Enterprises, Millcroft, Nash Grove, Pypers Pointe, Rivers Trace, Taylor Hall Estates, Trentwood, Whispering Winds and parcels not in recorded subdivisions in the vicinity.
These neighborhoods are proposed to transfer from Gates Elementary to Matoaca Elementary: Beach Estates, Beechwood Forest, Chesdin Landing, Chesdin Shores, Rivers Trace (section K) and parcels not in recorded subdivisions in the vicinity.
We welcome your feedback at the meetings.
