School’s Back


The first day of school opened in the area with sunny skies and a bit of warmth.

”I’m always excited to see the students and have them back in the school and today was no exception,” said South Winneshiek superintendent Kris Einck. “It’s going to be another fantastic year at South Winneshiek Schools!”

The week saw the return of high school athletics, though Friday’s football saw a wet evening.
