Originally published April 17, 2014: The Manhassett Village apartment development (now called EVO), to be built north of Brentwood Forest, lies in the city of Richmond Heights but is in the Brentwood School District, according to Brentwood Superintendent of Schools David Faulkner. The first two phases of construction include 321 units to be completed by 2016. Faulkner said comparing the proposed development to current housing gives an estimate of the potential student population.

Brentwood school officials didn’t know a suspect had been charged, after they had cleared up and been reimbursed for almost $5,000 for iPhones improperly charged to the district. A former sales representative of a Mehlville area cellphone retailer had secretly ordered the iPhones in the name of customers, including the Brentwood School District, then sold the phones. She was charged on Thursday. Brentwood Superintendent of Schools David Faulkner has shared the rest of the story, not including the name of the school district employee who caught the error.

Brentwood schools superintendent, David Faulkner said in a letter home to parents on Thursday that a student apparently had a gun at the high school one evening last week and Brentwood Police and school officials were investigating the report, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. School administrators called the police on Wednesday when they learned of the incident.

Brentwood Superintendent of Schools David Faulkner is well aware that the first day of school for 2014 coincides with predicted below-zero temperatures Sunday night and a high in low single digits on Monday. Faulkner said there’s no policy on how cold it should be before school is called off, “but I think with the combination of the snow coming on Sunday and the cold weather, the safe answer is, we’ll look at the total conditions and decide Sunday night what’s the best decision for the kids,” he said. He said about 20 percent of Brentwood students wait at bus stops in St. Louis and also a significant number of kids walk from across Brentwood Boulevard. “So if it is as cold as (they say it will be), we’ll consider all of those factors,” he said.
