Technology plan, school calendar, auxiliary gym and proposed capital outlay projects were some of the many items discussed at a Winner School Board retreat held on Feb. 3.
Business manager Laura Root presented an update on the construction of auxiliary gym. She said the precast walls are done and should be shipped to Winner by Monday, Feb. 8. At that time Puetz Corporation will start installing the walls. Bar joists will be installed starting on Feb. 17. Plans call for the building to be enclosed by the middle of March.
Seeking Keystone XL Approval
About 40 South Dakota state legislators banded together on Thursday in support of the Keystone XL pipeline.
A resolution urging Congress to support and ask the U.S. Secretary of State to approve the 1,179 mile crude oil pipeline from Canada through the United States which was backed by 43 of state’s 105 legislators despite being rejected by President Obama in November.
If approved, the pipeline would pass through a portion of Tripp County and there would be two pump stations in this county.
