Things Heat Up in Concession Stand, Board Considers Solution

Scott County True Value Hardware November Deals of the Month

The Mansfield School Board met in regular session on Monday evening. All members of the board were present with the exception of Trent Hayslip. Following the approval of the minutes and financial reports, the board moved on to current business.

Present to address the board was Amanda Wilson. Wilson, President of the Mansfield Parent Involvement Committee and treasurer for the Athletic Booster Club, expressed the need for air conditioning inside the concession stand. Wilson, booster athletes and parents have endured a grueling hot summer in the confined space. “Everyone who volunteers said they wouldn’t do it again until we can get some sort of air conditioning,” shared Wilson. Adding that when working the concession stand, “We are all ringing wet with sweat, head to toe.”

No immediate board action was taken. Superintendent Robert Ross responded by saying they will look at what needs to be done, and use the winter months to explore options.

In other school business, the board accepted an expulsion recommendation, adopted a minority recruitment plan and discussed implementing a ALE, Alternative Learning Experience, at the Elementary School.
