Baxter Elementary Re-Opens On Monday

Students and teachers at Baxter Elementary School, who have been divided up between the high school and middle school in Baxter for the past few weeks, are getting back to a more normal schedule Monday.  The school system has now received permission from the state fire marshal's office to move back into the building, which was damaged by flooding in August. That damage revealed that the electrical systems in the older parts of the school were inadequate and potentially dangerous.  School officials now say the electrical and phone line have been replaced and have passed inspection. Officials say the cost of that re-wiring is expected to exceed $100,000.
