We Press On

I hope this update finds you having a good start to your weekend! COVID-19 positive cases have rapidly declined this week from a student high case count of 85 last Friday to 27 positive cases at the end of this Friday. It is amazing the difference a week can make and I am really hoping this data is indicative of the Omicron surge starting to decline as rapidly as it came.

This Tuesday, January 25th at 6:00 p.m., we have a really important meeting to discuss future facility planning. The Mineola High School BBQ Competition Team is going to prepare our meal for that evening and the Board Advisory Council has been invited to join us as well for the conversation. I have asked Steve Perry and Craig Cunningham from DA Davidson, along with Jackson Construction and Perry Thompson to join us for that evening to be able to answer any questions you may have as the discussion moves forward.

If you need anything over the weekend, don't hesitate to give me a call or send a text. I appreciate all that you do!

My best,
