SARTELL - Students and parents in the Sartell-St. Stephen schools will notice a change in their schedule next school year.

The school board has voted to eliminate the spring break in 2013.  Instead, they'll have three long weekends: they'll have one three-day and two four-day weekends in February, March and April.

The board says the decision to make the change will help student learning, and allow for staff development.
