New Alden Elementary Principal Jacki Kooistra speaks during Monday's Alden School Board meeting. The board discussed Return to Learn options for school next month.

Superintendent Tony Neumann was blunt when he addressed the Alden School Board during Monday’s discussion about plans to return to in-person learning next month.

Neumann said he was taken aback by Gov. Kim Reynolds’ press conference last week when she said in-person instruction is the preferred method of learning this fall. She signed a proclamation that states remote learning is only allowed under specific conditions.
