Back to school in Ft. La Bosse SD

A message from School Superintendent Barry Pitz

August is quickly coming to an end and that can only mean that September and a return to school will be here before you know it! I hope everyone has had an enjoyable summer vacation and are now excited to begin the upcoming school year with renewed energy for teaching and learning. I would like to extend a warm welcome to new and returning students and staff.
