Buildings and Grounds report:  Water pipes froze in new addition due to not being insulated.  We are working with GA Johnson to get them fixed.  Other kitchen window needs to be replaced.  Discussed concession stand outside and the possibility of renovating.  Gym floor needs to be stripped down and waxed and painted.  More seed to be put on football field this spring.  Discussed redoing the gym and putting in basketball goals on the sides that raise and lower and recessed bleachers; estimate for this would be around $100,000 that would have to come from capital outlay.  With funding being so tight this is not something that is being considered at this time.  The board wants the Town of South Shore to give us a lease figure for rent or to let us know if they even plan to try to keep it open.  The town wants permission to advertise the sale and to show people around if it comes up.  The board is okay with this. 


M. Fischer gave LAMD report.


D. Jones gave NESC report.


D. Jones gave the transportation report.  Mr. Meyer blew up the district map and put on this year’s bus routes to help with projected routes for next year.  New bus has 2 recalls and will be fixed as soon as possible.


D. Jones and J. Meyer gave administrative reports: Jones-Patriot’s Pen award winners were announced:  C. Mueller, T. Carpenter,  M. Pond, A. Buchholz, and C. Urban.  Discussed: Write to Learn and graduation gowns. Would like board to set the colors.  Meyer-P/T conferences rescheduled for March 10th, peer tutoring with NHS and student council, student council movie night and donut sales on Fridays, Football schedule is set, BB is at the end of the season, and polar plunge raised over $2,000.00.
