  • Jim wrote a letter to Gillespie stating that no Earn A Bike will take place on site except with certain students who have letters of permission - all other unaccompanied minors will be banned.

  • Equipment options were outlined for the board
  • Peter will purchase a camera and install it
  • We will need to make a choice on software issues, such as whether the camera will call us when it detects an intrusion
    • This feature, if made useful, would add an undetermined amount of labor and cost
