Other items of Interest:
The building maintenance staff continue to work hard to get the buildings ready for the start of the school year. We are close to having everything completed.
The fall athletic and band activities are in full swing. The students, coaches, and teachers have really been working hard as they prepare for yet another season.
I am getting my indoctrination with the Wind Turbine. We have had a couple mornings where it did not seem to be working properly. With quick phone calls to the company and valuable assistance from our representative, we have been able to immediately get things back up and running smoothly.
Bus inspection took place on Wednesday, August 8th. All of our busses have passed inspection which is great news and a tribute to our mechanic and staff.
Representatives from Toledo Edison (Gary Keys and Greg Flaczynski) stopped by to introduce themselves as well as provide us with some detailed electric data for the district. It was a valuable meeting as they provided me with a little additional insight about the Wind Turbine in addition some tips on purchasing should we ever need to upgrade some of our systems.
We had an HVAC issue at the Elementary School. A compressor in one of the roof top AC units went out. Beamont did a great job in tracking down the part and was very timely in getting a crane to set on the roof and get installed. We appreciate how quickly they addressed the situation.
I started full time on Monday, July 30th while Mrs. Valerie Nafziger (Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent) started on Wednesday, August 1st. It is challenging, to say the least, when you have new people in both of these positions. I want to comment how helpful everyone has been in assisting us both with the transition. I always knew that this school district and this community had great people. It has never been more evident than through this process. I am truly excited to be working here.
