Year-round schools in La Crosse will wait until September to reopen



The coronavirus has forced two La Crosse elementary schools to call off summer classes this year. 

Northside and Hamilton Schools started the most recent school year last July, with brief vacation breaks throughout the calendar year. 

But the La Crosse School District says those two buildings will follow the traditional school calendar this coming school year, beginning class on September 1st. 

District staff is working on possible on-line class offerings for the summer. 

The district only plans to make the change for one year, and tentatively expects to return to year-round schooling next year at those two locations.
