Our new website is live.  Dr. Foutch encouraged the BOE to look at it.  Thanks to Mrs. Ringwald and Anthony for making this happen. 

 

We were recently given the very good news that our School Maintenance Grant proposal was approved by the ISBE.  As mentioned before, our plan is to use this grant money to build new dugouts on our varsity baseball field (in coordination with PAWS).  Dr. Foutch is currently working with FGM architects on the final design and will be asking the Board (during our May meeting) for permission to begin soliciting bids for construction.  Our plan is for the dugouts to be completed by spring of 2021.  The School Maintenance Grants are paid through a “reimbursement” system so district funds would be used up front and the State of Illinois will reimburse the district.

 

Dr. Foutch updated the BOE on the outstanding student fees.  With the school closure and the uncertainty surrounding graduation and courses resuming, it may be difficult to collect all fees this school year.  The BOE decided to have Dr. Foutch send letters to the seniors who have had outstanding fees from all the years in attendance.  They also decided to refund the spring sports activity fees to the athletes who have already paid that fee.   

 

Dr. Foutch also informed the BOE on the upcoming events scheduled for April and May.  Prom will be scheduled for June 27th (alternative date of July 11th) and Graduation scheduled for July 2nd (alternative date of July 16th).  All other Award banquets are yet to be determined. 

 

Our Health / Life Safety Amendment for repainting the West Gym Parapet and repairing the East Gym doors has been approved by ISBE.  A motion to approve RP Coatings to repaint West Gym Metal Panels for $6450 was made by Ricther, second by Kennedy.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None

 

A motion to approve Millenium Construction to repair East Gym Doors for $19750 was made by J. Kampwerth, second by T. Kampwerth.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None   

 

A motion to approve Warnecke Building Restoration to apply a waterproof seal to the exterior brick of the new addition for $5700 was made by Voss, second by T. Kampwerth.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None

 

A motion to approve Warnecke Building Construction to repair the mortar joint on the exterior walls of the building for $17100 was made by Voss, second by J. Kampwerth.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None 

 

A motion to approve Millenium Construction to construct an insulated wall between Kruse and Johnson's rooms for $13890 was made by Kennedy, second by Kruse.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None   

 

There are also various areas of the building that are in desperate need of paint.  As we have discussed in the past, we will be refinishing the East Gym floor this summer.  It would be a good time to repaint the gym before or while refinishing the East Gym floor.  It has been several years since the gym was painted and it would make that entire space look new if we completed both of those projects together. Dr. Foutch also suggested that the weight room and both west gym (boys and girls) locker rooms are in desperate need of painting.  Joe Lampe asked Albers Painting in Breese for estimates on these projects and Dr. Foutch asked RP Coating to give us a bid.  A motion to approve Albers Painting to paint East gym interior, weight room and locker rooms was made by Richter, second by J. Kampwerth.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None

 

A motion to extend a 3 year contract to Neil Hamon for Athletic Director/Assistant Principal as presented was made by Voss, second by Richter.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None

 

A motion to employ Mara Koerkenmeier for Mental Health Expert/Social Worker pending all necessary requirements was made by Kruse, second by Voss.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None
