Monday, March 16, through Monday, April 6,

due to Covid 19 virus (Coronavirus).  For details see letter from Sheri Kopka, administrator, on school website –


  1. Does this mean that the fat-cat free-loaders who eat free meals on our dime every Monday and Friday at the school will have to go without? If Torkelson was still around he would find a way to deliver the meals to their homes to protect his patronage system.

  2. It is very comforting to know that our administrator Sheri Kopka has things very much under control as far as continuing the education of our children (we have two in the school) during the closing of the school. This would never have happened under the former administration and old school board, which included Deanna Pierpont. Read her plan in the March 17 letter on the school’s website.
