Training is happening on the robocall system Feb. 9. The district plans to run a test call of this system next week. If you haven’t already done so you should make sure all your contact information is correct in the student information system (Parent Portal). If you didn’t already set your phone to accept these messages the code has changed from what was originally sent out in the letter directing you how to do this. A new code will be sent out to you when you are notified of the time of the planned system test.
The district has been in contact with Rick Timbs who is a school finance guru. He has offered the district a contract for services to review the district’s financials and possibly help guide the district as it begins to focus more intently on planning for the future of the school and an associated capital project.
Just a reminder: The hill behind the school is owned by the school (lower half) and the town (upper half). Due to an unfortunate accident years ago sledding has not been allowed on that hill for some time now. The hill has a snow fence at the bottom with no trespassing signs to help get that message out there. This is not a new rule but is one that we must ask the public to help us enforce in an effort to avoid future sledding injuries on the hill.
The next meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 21, in the school library.
