Meeting with Jan Saam – It has been 45 degrees in the cafeteria.

Committee reports
Grievance – none pending
Membership – any changes, please let Cheryl Campbell know.
NTL website – huge issues getting in to make changes; it is a work in progress.
Elementary concerns – *If you are injured at work, an incident report must be filed with the nurse. It is a paper form that must be filled out and is needed in case of an issue. Bites may require a shot that is not normally covered by insurance.
Maple Hill has 6 people pregnant and there is concern about cabinets being demolished, floors replaced and electrical work being done. Parents were not notified of the schedule of work being done.
Sick bank – If you donated both years that it was offered, you may make a request to use days until all of the hours are exhausted. We may not carry more than 185 sick days, a school year’s worth of days. 4-5 people have used the sick bank.
Intermediate concerns – none
Some teachers were test for Kawsaki disease and the bill was covered. Because the principal sent them home for testing positive, I think no sick time was taken.
If all administrators are out of the building, someone needs to let staff know who is in charge.
While there is no dress code, the expectation is that teachers dress like a professional.
Middle School concerns – none
High School concerns – nothing new
The NHS survey about start time has been postponed.
Charley encouraged teachers to speak up at public forums, but to be professional.
