The teachers found the gym back door unlocked and don’t know for sure how long it has been unlocked.  The Board readdressed the building use procedures.  Anyone wanting to use the building needs to get a key from a board member.  The key will only open the front door and not any other door.  If someone wants to use the kitchen area or chairs from the storage shed, they need to contact a board member first.  Please be sure to sign the calendar in the school and in the shed for chairs.  When borrowing or returning chairs that belong in the shed, please do not drive on lawn.  If anyone has a key that the board is not aware of please turn them into a board member or at the school.  Those that should have keys are Board members, clerk, the teachers and aides and transportation supervisor.

The school was notified that they were awarded the REAP Grant Award again this year.  The teachers will make a list of items they would like to purchase.  They already know they need some new headphones and some PE equipment.  The Board approved these items.  Jake will call Jacob Andersen to see if he has any suggestions.

The bus driver contracts are up at the end of this school year.  The Board will look at the current contracts being used and maybe make some changes on them for next school year at October’s meeting.  The Williams boys are the only passengers for the elementary morning route so the Wards bus is picking them up.

The Trustee re-zoning proposal was approved by the State Department.
