Exciting News – Congrats to our coaches and players for making the trip to the state baseball tournament. The 3 year Asbestos re-inspection of the building has taken place. No issues. Still have just a few places with known/possible asbestos. Work on the HVAC issues in the new area continues. We have had weekly meetings to discuss/hear progress. They have been putting in the heat exchanger in the gym. A year ago we had just started the sharing of the superintendent position. It’s been busy ever since. We had tentatively discussed having a 2:2 meeting on the 25th with RV. Staffing – Title I position and Music position are still open. RV still does not have a band or choir teacher and possible share Band and Choir with Kingsley. RV would shuttle students to Kingsley.
