Closing

  • Future actionable items:
  1. Concerns were raised regarding the state of the playground grass in the winter. It was explained that direction is received from the Board as to what parts of the school grounds are open to the children depending on the weather. Marc is making inquiries regarding the condition of the field.
  2. Concerns were also raised about Forest Creek Drive, and the safety risk posed to students walking on such a busy road now that the path to the Tilt Trail is closed. Robert M is willing to inquire about either reopening the path or putting in a sidewalk.
  3. Yearbook coordinator is needed asap
