            Mark Bresson and Donna Chick, parents of the late Craig Bresson spoke.  They usually do a scholarship in memory of Craig, but because of the potential of going with Indian Creek they were here to say that the board could do whatever they wanted with the money that was in H.F. Gehant Bank, West Brooklyn.  Mark and Donna would like to see a  bench or whatever the board thought fit, “Craig would have wanted the money to stay here” stated his father.  The Board thanked them and Heidi McKee said let them think on that awhile and the board will get back with them to see if whatever they decided was alright with them.

Administrative Report:

           

            Telephone Lines – we had the alarms go off due to a telephone line fault.  We called Frontier to look and make the repairs, if necessary.   The repairman and Mr. Adcock discussed the repairs in general, in the course of talking with him he told Mr. Adcock we have 17 lines but only use 4-5 of them.   Emmy contacted Frontier to get more specifics and there may be some savings if we cancel those extra lines.

 

            Students on the Roof – after Memorial Day, Kim Siemers emailed me to let me know she had observed three young men on the roof of the school and she had notified Lee County Sheriff’s office.  I then called the Lee County Sheriff and asked for more information and was told the deputy would call me.  As of yet he hasn’t called me, and I found out the deputy who handled the case, he is in the National Guard and his unit was deployed to Japan for the entire month of June.  He is supposed to let me know more when he returns.

 

            IHSA and Sports Cooperative Approval – earlier this week I received a letter from the IHSA, giving us their approval for the IC/Paw Paw sports co-op for the next two years.
