The 2010-11 school term kicked off Monday with an expanse of emotions from pupils and parents as everyone was herded inside the Perkins County Elementary School in Grant. Classes began at 8 a.m. at all three sites across the county, with early dismissal at the elementary, the middle school in Madrid and the high school in Grant. A regular schedule got underway Tuesday with the time varying slightly at each facility.

On the roster at Madrid’s middle school building were 75 students, and high schoolers in Grant numbered 120. (Photo by Jan Rahn)
