The new school year begins on Tuesday, Sept. 8, for most students in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191.
There are a few exceptions. At Nicollet Junior High School, only 7th grade students will attend school on Sept. 8 so they have a day by themselves to adjust to their new school. All students at Nicollet will attend beginning on Sept. 9.
