3. Discussions

  • Sandra asked for feedback about online learning. Council members have been happy with the teachers efforts. They appreciate the content as well as the personal videos, etc.
  • Discussed the idea of having a faculty “Drive By & Greet” on April 14. Available school facility would practice social distancing and stand on parking curb in front of school during specified time to wave and encourage students during a drive by.
