Special to the I-O by Lynn Utterback, Superintendent of Schools
Conrad Schools are open for business again this week.
We are excited to begin a new year and have quite a few changes that we would like to share with our students, parents and community.
First of all, we have a new web site at www.conradschools.org .
On this web site you will be able to access district and individual school calendars. In addition, current announcements, event schedules and times, lunch menus, staff directories and information, and a plethora of other information. Families may register at www.conradschools.org to receive important announcements automatically about school closings, disasters, or schedule changes.

As its been in the past the Cowboy football team will be having a big test right out of the chute when the Malta Mustangs come to town on Friday.
The Mustangs lost three players who had state honors behind their name, but they also return five players who got some form of all league recognitions including All-State lineman Kyle Boos.
The Cowboys says Coach Joe Moerkerke, “We’ll have four seniors on the squad.” They will have to step up and provide leadership for 16 juniors, 10 sophomores and eight freshmen.
