Two light poles were replaced at the football field last week. The Washington school gym floor should be completed by the second week of October. The roofing company that received the bid on the Lincoln school roof could not start until September first due to prior commitments, and since it couldn’t be completed before the beginning of school, they will wait until school ends next summer. And the architect is looking into the cost of replacing the shingled roof at Washington school.
Lee also complimented the building custodians and office staff members for their work during the summer getting things ready for the school year.
The State still owes the District $230,000.

And the resignation of Timothy Knight as custodian at the Junior/Senior high school effective this past August 11th.
