Sumner Elementary School Principal Sheila Berger leads sisters Lilly, right, and Lyla Thompson to their classroom on the first day of school this morning. The Austin school starts earlier than most in Minnesota because it has a schedule of 45 days on and 15 days off. Albert Lea Area Schools are considering a similar schedule that would start in 2015 after the Freeborn County Fair. – Eric Johnson/Albert Lea Tribune
