South Lake Tahoe Area Information July 18, 2008

Parents Have Choice of South Shore Schools

I thought some of you might find this information interesting. The Tahoe Daily Tribune released information on South Tahoe area schools. Everything looks good to me except that Zephyr Cove’s middle school, Kingsbury Middle School, closed on June 9, 2008. Sixth graders will now go to Zephyr Cove Elementary. Seventh and eighth graders will go to Whittell High School, which is also in Zephyr Cove.
