The schools in La Veta are all on the same street.  The Kindergarten, Elementary and the High School are right across the street from each other.  Ricky tells me that school week is just 4 long days.  Also, the La Veta schools are ranked in the top 10 in the State of Colorado.  The schools were not in session when I took the pictures, so I will see if Ricky or Justin can get us an idea of the student population.

In front of the Elementary School, right on Main Street, is a statue memorializing a local leader--Charlie Masinton.  The grocery store still carries his name--"Charlie's".

The High School has the traditional sign saying "Drug Free Zone".  Personally I've never been sure if that says something good about the High School or bad about the rest of the town?

Tomorrow we will look at some of the businesses.
