October 4th BOE Meeting: Time Change

The Board will need to go into closed session at the October 4th Board of Education meeting to discuss personnel matters. Since there is a very important community event that same evening in the "President's Own" United States Marine Band performance, Chairman Thomas has authorized an earlier start time to the meeting in order to accommodate the closed session. Therefore, the October 4th Board of Education meeting will begin at 6:00 pm at Blue Creek Elementary. The media and public will receive notice of the change.
