Report of the Superintendent

Building –

Old Gym- masonry work has been completed and now waiting on painters to get here to paint the entire gym. Original quote was for one side only, but there was some masonry work done to north side so whole gym will be painted.

Major Summer Projects- only one is the parking lot.

Financials-

Amended Budget- as of today, it appears that we will not need to do an amended budget for the year.

Tax Levy Extension for FY2020- tax bills are late this year so early tax money will be questionable as to when it gets here. The budget is not prepared annually needing early tax money.
