The board also unanimously approved a recommendation of 10 paid COVID days for employees for the 2021-22 school year. These days will be set forth with the same perimeters as last school year.
Each board member took time at the meeting to congratulate the marching band, which placed fifth in the Indiana State School Music Association Scholastic B state finals on Saturday. This is the first time in nine years the band has made the state competition and placed this high.
“Our band is made up of eight seniors, two juniors, two sophomores, two freshmen, nine eighth graders and seven seventh graders,” board member Kristina Gunter said. “I had no idea we had such young students in our band and to be performing at this high of a level is just amazing.”
The board’s next regular meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 11, at 7 p.m. in the middle school cafeteria in Ramsey.
