Chris Selland gave the financial report and gave a brief update on the Family First Coronavirus Relief Act that provides limited emergency sick leave/family leave for employees dealing with a variety of COVID-related absences. 

Superintendent Weber discussed the transition to the yellow phase of the reopening plan during the last several weeks with additional precautions put into place. 

He also discussed plans for a virtual Veteran’s Day Program and alternative ways to honor our Veterans this year. Thanks go out to all the Staff, Media Advisors and Students that helped put together the program.  

Plans are still being discussed regarding Christmas concert options and basketball season protocol.  The hope is that the South Dakota High School Activities Association will be providing some guidance for districts to follow. 

The sidewalk project (in front of the gymnasium classrooms) has been completed by Mr. Schmiedt and his Industrial Technology Students to include both the sidewalk and landscaping. The Board would like to thank Mr. Schmiedt and all the students that assisted with the project. 

The football practice field/track project is ongoing with the asphalt phase tentatively scheduled for early summer. 

Lead Elementary Teacher Sarah Jensen updated the Board on Elementary issues and advised that the staff was working very well together to cover staff absences.

Jason Bruce advised that the County had contacted him to request a map of the bus routes so they could prioritize road maintenance for the routes.

The Board opened sealed bids received for the surplus Chariot floor scrubber and approved the high bid of $1,825.00 from Jason Zacher on a motion by Neal Hiemstra, with a second by Jodi Doering. Motion carried. The sealed bids received were as follows:

This amount is an increase from the original amount (up to $16,000.00) approved at the October regular meeting. Motion was made by Lisa Snedeker, with a second by Jodi Doering, and motion carried.

On a motion by Jodi Doering, seconded by Neal Hiemstra, the Board approved a special board meeting to be held in the commons area on November 24th, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. Motion carried.  The purpose of the meeting is to reassess the district’s reopening plan with possible modifications regarding quarantine times for close-contact students.  

There being no further business to come before the Board, the November 9th, 2020, regular board meeting of the Woonsocket Board of Education was adjourned at 7:53 p.m. on a motion by Neal Hiemstra, with a second by Lisa Snedeker. Motion carried.
