Red Lake School District #38 Special School Board Meeting - Wednesday, August 5, 2020

2:00 PM - Red Lake High School Cafeteria


August 5, 2020

School Board Meeting Information for 8.5.2020

The School Board Meeting at 2:00 tomorrow has been moved from the District Office to the Secondary Complex Cafeteria (please enter through door 1).

I wanted to make sure that the board agenda and meeting place were available as the meeting space changed late in the day due to multiple requests from the community to be at the board meeting or speak during public comments… it will be posted on door #29 where the meeting originally was scheduled to be.

The seating for the community will follow the 6’seperation guidelines and it will be expected that all community members attending the meeting will follow the entry procedures outlined in the Red Lake and Governor’s Executive Orders including wearing their masks.

Please remember if you would like to speak during public comments you must fill out the form when you come to the meeting and the Board will listen to you during your 5 minutes but they will not respond.
