Classes in the Emmetsburg Community School District began Wednesday morning. The familiar yellow school buses rolled up to the doors at the district’s buildings, discharging their precious cargo, while the mopeds congregated in the parking lot at the Middle and High School after transporting their riders.

Students at West Elementary opened their school year with a group assembly in front of the flag pole, where they recited the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag and were welcomed to another school year by Elementary Principal Matt Pugh.
