Blackhawk Roofing

Workers with Blackhawk Roofing are lined up above the Elk Point-Jefferson High School building as they work last week at replacing the roof.

At a special meeting May 28, the Elk Point-Jefferson School Board heard from Superintendent Derek Barrios and Activities Director Justin Clercx about the difficulties in presenting driver’s education classes this summer at EPJ. They decided that classes would not be held this year

Board member Sabrina Sayler disagreed with that decision and volunteered to talk to other districts that are holding their classes, to see what they are doing to insure the safety of students and staff. After more discussion, she, Barrios and Clercx have devised procedures and a schedule that will work for everybody.

Classes will be offered the weeks of June 22 and July 6. Each will be a one week, with a maximum of 20 students, sitting at least six feet apart. All class work will be completed in person, as Clercx is not comfortable accepting work online when he has to certify the results.
