Burke School District begins classes


BURKE, S.D. (KELO) — It’s a big day for students in Burke as kids head back to the classroom!

School started a little late for the district after a tornado and strong winds ripped through the city last month, damaging the school, Civic Center, businesses and homes.

Crews are still repairing some classrooms even as the school year starts.

Staff say air quality tests around the school came back clean ahead of the first day.
