MACCRAY East Elementary School third-grade stu-dent, Benjamin Ulferts, 9, works does school work Wednesday during class. MACCRAY last year imple-mented a four-day school week in an effort to cuts costs. While the district has since saved some $65,000 since then, officials will need to cut a further $350,000 from the 2009-10 budget. One option is to close one of the district's two elementary schools.
