Board Previews Wellness Fair, Approves Calendar 26 Apr 17

The Thief River Falls Board of Education met in regular session Monday.

The Board heard a report from Rhonda Amundson on the upcoming Wellness Fair.  Amundson said the Fair will be held on Saturday, April 29th at LHS beginning at 10am.  There will be a number of healthy food demos, kids gym activities, and mini-sessions pertaining to keeping fit.  There will be a guest speaker at 11am.  There is no admission charge.

The Board also approved the 2017-2018 school calendar.Two weeks ago they were presented with a proposed calendar that did not include make-up days for snow days and would use e-learning to make up for cancelled school days.  One Board member said he liked the calendar but didn’t like the fact there were no make-up days.

The revised calendar would forgive the first two snow days and would use time during the spring break for any additional days that were cancelled due to inclement weather. This summer e-learning will be looked at as a possible option.
