- 2021-2022 School Year Pandemic Plans – Corrie announced there will be no masks the last week of school and as far as she knows right now, everything will be back to normal next year.
– Corrie does not plan to have zones next year. Corrie would like to keep the lunchtime routines similar with only one grade level in the lunchroom/out at recess at a time. To do this we will have to fund the extra expense ($6,000) it will take to keep the cafeteria workers 2 hours longer. Corrie proposed using cell tower funds being carried over for next year which are $22,000 and using $6,000 to keep the expanded lunch times. Corrie motioned to approve this funding. Amy 2nd. All in favor.
– As a side note, lunch will tentatively be free for all of next year unless federal funds run out sooner.
– School will be back in session on Fridays next year.
- SCC finances update – Cell tower balance is healthy as mentioned earlier. All other funds have not been used since April 16.
- SCC Elections Update 2021-2022 – This is Katie, Lance, Amy, and Misa’s last year on SCC. This means there are 5 open seats on the committee. Those 4 can reapply and applications are open to the community until Monday May 17. If we have more than 5 applications submitted, we will go to a ballot vote. If 5 or less people apply, we will not need to vote. We need a minimum of 4 seats filled on the committee.
– We will vote on a Chair and secretary in the fall.
- Input from PTA – Raquel says PTA is ready for field day. The response to parent volunteers was wonderful and the PTA is so appreciative of the help.
-Parents don’t understand why they can do recess duty without a COVID test or vaccine, but they can’t help with field day. Corrie clarified that they could have parents to recess duty without a problem because it is less than 15 minutes.
- Input from the community – We could possibly need a pandemic plan for next year. If the district requires this, SCC will hold a meeting over the summer.
- Adjourn – Abby motioned to adjourn the meeting at 8:05. Amy 2nd. All in favor.
