Miller had originally estimated that about 500 students and their families would be affected by the plant closing. However, that number has now grown to 800 students affected, with some of them having already left the district due to their parents finding work elsewhere.

Miller said that, at the moment, there have not been too many school programs affected by the number of absent students. However, he added the biggest concern will be with registration for next semester. He said at that time, the district would really see how much the closing has affected them.
