SLEEPY EYE - On Thursday, the District 84 school board accepted the resignation of elementary teacher Cyndi Jakel effective Jan. 18, 2013.
"It'll be a loss for us," said Supt. John Cselovszki. "She lives in New Ulm and her kids go to school there. I have a long-term sub candidate in mind that has subbed here. You can vote on it at the next board meeting. We'll open the job up again in April."
