Figg says the district is dealing with a maintenance issue connected to the new roof of the East Gym. The roof was damaged during August storms when winds sent a large vent tumbling across the structure, cutting several holes in the newly finished surface, before falling to the sidewalk below. The school board met Thursday night and heard an update on the repairs.

Board members also approved the budget for the upcoming year and the annual performance and secretary of the board reports during the meeting.
