The New School Year Begins


Tuesday morning begins the 2016-2017 school year for Luther Public Schools. All across the district, summer time bedtime routines have been swapped for the school time routines. Backpacks are full, and first day of school outfits are ready for a big full day. L

September 6, 2016, is the first day of school as the district is testing a shortened school year with longer days to cope with budget shortfalls.

The school district’s website lists that school will begin at 8:00 am and will dismiss at 3:40 pm. School employees and parents urge patience as bus routes and pick up lines are worked out these first few days.

Until the Town of Luther gets its new school zone signs ready, go ahead and observe school zone limits until 4:30 pm. The Town approved the new school zone speed limit in a Special Meeting just last week.

Luther High School students start the school year with Homecoming Week and will celebrate spirit days each day until Friday in advance of the big game against Prague at 7:30 pm on Friday.
