Early school dismissal all week
Summer vacation is over, but the heat is still with us.
Due to the extreme heat and lack of air conditioning in the Gettysburg Schools, classes will be dismissed every day this week at 1 p.m.
There will be no classes on Monday, Sept. 2 for the Labor Day holiday.
The football team will head to Miller on Friday night for their season opener with a 7 p.m. kickoff, and the Lady Battlers will host the Yellowstone Trail Conference tourney on Saturday starting at 10 a.m. On Tuesday the girls will head to Roscoe for a 6:30 start time on matches against Edmunds Central.
The cross country team will head north for the Mobridge Invitational on Saturday at 10 a.m.
Remember to drink lots of water and stay hydrated, whether you are playing or watching in the hot weather.
