Still no classes at Sisseton elementary school

There is still no school at Westside Elementary School in Sisseton.

It was a week ago today that fire in a mechanical room caused extensive smoke damage. There’s been no school this week as district officials worked out a plan to get kids back into the classroom.

They announced their plan yesterday. Pre K-through-5th grade classes in the Sisseton School District will resume February 22nd-but not at the elementary school. Instead, kids in Pre-K-through-2nd grade will attend classes at the Family Life Center and grades 3 through 5 will go to school in the Performing Arts Center.

The school district says breakfast and lunch will be served at each location during the school day. It’s unclear just how long these temporary locations will have to be utilized.
