The new school year officially got underway in Sioux City on Wednesday.
Public School Superintendent Dr. Paul Gausman started his day earlier than most, taking part in what has become a tradition for him on the first day of classes:
OC……..keep them safe. :22
Another of the superintendent’s opening day traditions is to check in with each building in the district.
He was at Loess Hills Elementary by 9:30:
OC………every day. ;14
For the first time in awhile, Dr. Gausman did not have a new school to stop and visit:
OC………Perry Creek. ;16
Gausman says around 15-thousand students are enrolled in public schools for the fall semester.
