Ms. Neubert shared the public input statement.


Public Input: None at this time however, Ms. Mallett asked about how to remind folks that public input is a great opportunity for their input.


Ms. Erin Kinsey, student representative, shared that some students are struggling with the current mode of education due to the pandemic. Stressors, such as schedule changes etc, have increased. The teachers are doing a good job with providing office hours and times to check in with students one on one. They have been open to any students who want to chat. The limited opportunities for students and for families in general is difficult. The balance of safety and stress is difficult.

Ms. Hopper made the motion and it was seconded by Ms. Corliss to accept the minutes February 4, 2021 as amended. All members voted in favor except Mr. Doiron who abstained and the motion passed.


The superintendent shared that there was a $400 donation from Brandon and Rebecca Brow to the Backpack Program. This donation was very much appreciated.


Ms. Mallett shared a letter that she has drafted to the Governor and Dr. Shaw to ask that teachers be placed on a priority list. The board discussed the importance of getting our students back in school and how having teachers vaccinated would be supportive. The board agreed to support the letter and sign off.


Ms. Denise Van Campen, business manager, then reviewed the current amount of PPE materials we have on hand. We are in good shape.

Other business:


Tri Town Book mobile received a $1500 grant from KSB to provide a book to our seniors… The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse. It’s a story that provides hope during these really difficult times.
