School enrollment outlook very good

By Gayle VanVooren, editor

Minneota School enrollment projections are very good.

About 463 students are expected and the figure may go up.

Supt. Dan Deitte said open enrollment into the district is much stronger than those going out. And he added kindergarten will have about 44 students and a third teacher may be needed.

While it costs money to ad the teacher, the superintendent said, "The students come first. I have the job to be fiscally sound, but I also am looking at a quality education."
