CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - More than 170 elementary school students in eastern Cheyenne can’t attend the school closest to their homes because population growth forced the district to alter boundaries.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reported Tuesday (https://tinyurl.com/ko7azz9 ) 117 students were shifted from Saddle Ridge Elementary, 42 from Dildine and 13 from Anderson.

Saddle Ridge opened only a few years ago but Laramie County School District 1 officials say the neighborhood population has grown more quickly than expected.

Assistant superintendent of support operations Dave Bartlett says it should become easier to keep students in the closest school over the next few years because of plans to add or replace schools.

The district has 13,000 students.

Assistant superintendent of instruction Tracey Kinney says enrollment in kindergarten, first grade and fifth grade is high this year.
