School Starts On Tuesday 31 Aug 11

The majority of students around the state will be going back to school this coming Tuesday, the day after Labor Day, including the kids of New Ulm’s District 88 Schools. Superintendent Harold Remme says the students will have had a total of 95 days without school, and that staff is ready for them. A total of around 1,960 students are registered at this time. Remme says that parent-teacher conferences are taking place all this week, and new 7th-graders were being treated to a special student-only carnival Tuesday afternoon. Some school districts in Minnesota have already started the new school year, including Sleepy Eye, St. Peter, MVL and New Ulm Cathedral.
