Cascade Middle School is more than one hundred students above capacity and the Bend La Pine School District is looking at ways to redistribute that population. A public forum was held Tuesday night at Pine Ridge Elementary, where parents could come out and express their view. Parent Angie Monday says moving kids will add more challenges to parents. “It is going to be more time, a bigger burden trying to get kids to and from school, it's going to be a burden for sports as somebody brought up.” There are more public meetings scheduled for tonight at High Lakes Elementary and on Thursday at Einsworth Elementary. Some of the options being considered are moving Pine Ridge Elementary students to Pilot Butte Middle School instead of overcrowded Cascade Middle School; or moving High Lakes and Miller Elementary students to Pilot Butte.
