1. Discuss & approve minutes of the previous meeting


2. Review board email votes since last meeting


3. Prioritize Agenda

4. Financial Report

The board reviewed the financial reports for May & an incomplete set of reports for June. The board accepted the May reports and looks forward to a complete set for June.

5. Preschool Report

Joyce reported that she has not made progress with Sarah toward the training goals, but will work on it this week. Joyce has completed the new hire tax paperwork.

Kristen sustained injuries in a motor vehicle collision just after our June board meeting. That disruption has affected her plans for training this summer.

Joyce reported that we have received one or two applications toward the open seats in the 2019-20 littles class.

Environmental issue reports:

A few days after the June board meeting, Kristen reported a strong odor in the building after it had been closed for a day or two with the furnace fan running. Roger came to join her in assessing the situation, but he was unable to perceive the issue. There have not been any other reports of the issue since then. Roger has requested that OSHA send an inspector, but we have no idea when that will happen.

6. Procedure for preschool parents who don’t pass background check

Review draft procedure (Joyce & Kristen) no progress on the final edits since last month because of Kristen’s motor vehicle accident. Dorothy has been approached by one of the parents who was not cleared in last year’s batch, asking about the process to appeal from there. Dorothy instructed her to write a letter of appeal to the board.

7. Celebrate Alpine lessons learned

The celebration was better-attended than the 2018 celebration. The additional effort we invested in publicity helped. The article from the Tri-County Tribune, and the cross-promotion with the softball tournament worked well. Multiple musicians or entertainment helped drive additional attendance. We agreed that we will hire someone each spring to do lawn mowing and weed whacking during the late spring and early summer As there is no reason why the board members should take on this task each year.

John had not yet prepared a draft budget. Tabled.

9. Recycling Center abuse
