The Albert Lea Area School Board will reconsider the balanced calendar issue at the special meeting December 29th. The meeting will take place at 6pm in the new board room on the second floor of Brookside Education Center. The calendar being considered is the same calendar that deadlocked the board on December 1st, with the addition of five weeks of mandated summer instruction. Prior to the calendar discussion, the board will talk about the potential of mandating instruction during the year when school is not in session.
There was an incident afterschool on April 29, 2015 where a suspicious male approached one of our students near Lakeview Elementary and grabbed her backpack before the girl ran home safely. The male subject was reported to be driving a 2-door white vehicle, is in his 50's with a dark beard and was wearing a brown hoodie and black shorts.
We are working with the Albert Lea Police Department to ensure the on-going safety of our students. We have requested extra police presence in the area. Please be aware and remain vigilant, and report concerning activity to ALPD at 507-377-5210.
