Meeting Held about Committee Findings

On March 5, the school board held a meeting to discuss the findings from their technology, scheduling and budget committees. New changes were approved for the next school year, such as getting a new phone system and installing a better network for cellular service. The board also discussed new options for scheduling in the future, as well as how FHS came up with the current block schedule.


Track Lines Fixed

At the school board meeting on March 7, the board announced that FieldTurf planned on painting the track lines. The next day, the company showed up to the track and fixed the lines. Before it was brought up to the board’s attention, the track lines were not correct or to scale, so the company repainted the track on March 8 in order to fix that.


Flag Pole Received

The school board approved the donation of a flagpole from the Big Knob Elementary School at the March 14 school board meeting. Since Big Knob is no longer being used, the school board is aware that they are responsible for removing the flagpole and repairing the grass if needed after the removal process.


Teacher Retirements Accepted

On March 14, the school board accepted the resignations for purposes of retirement for high school math teacher Katherine Hastings, middle school computer and technology teacher Valerie Marburger, high school biology teacher Craig Atkison and high school music teacher and marching band director Keith Kovalic as a marching band director. All of these resignations are to be effective at the end of the 2018-2019 school year.
