This request is due to the early date of the October Governing Board Meeting.
I met with the superintendents on September 22nd. We featured our PLTW biomedical program and served lunch prepared by our culinary II class. In addition, I shared our 2022-2023 calendar draft. I also shared an updated five year outlook for potential breaks. This year, after a few years very close, the calendars have started to spread out. We are trying to get our breaks as close to the same for all eight districts as we can for consistency.
We also talked about COVID and mask requirements. There was a mixed reaction to long-term required mask wearing. The one thing keeping masks required right now is the Governor's extension on his executive order to allow students to keep coming to school even if they are close contacts when masks are required in school.
Our restaurant should open on select Fridays starting November 4th. We will get more information soon.
Saturday, October 23rd, C9 plans to host a staff and family picnic under our shelter by the retention pond. All school board members will be invited.
