USD 410 holds short monthly meeting

The USD 410 Board met on Monday, Sept. 14. They did not have a lot of business as the school year had just started and staff and students are still adjusting to all of the new precautions with COVID-19.

Heinrichs reported that overall things are going well and the preparations have paid off. There have been adjustments as expected, but there haven’t been any huge surprises that really threw anyone off. He said that some parents have been surprised that their children even had fevers (not COVID-19 related) so the thermometers have been a good addition.

Most of the meeting consisted of administrative business. A short executive session was held and then staff changes announced.

The retirement of Marilyn Ratzlaff as a Hillsboro Elementary School Classroom Aide was approved. Her retirement was effective August 15, 2020. The board then approved the hiring of Connie Beavers to serve as Hillsboro Elementary School Classroom Aide for $12.00 per hour to work 6.5 hours per day to replace Ratzlaff.
