4. Quest Food Service Provider Memorandum of Understanding - (Roll Call)
With the 2020-2021 school year starting remotely, the District would like to provide meals to students as was done this past Spring during the shutdown. Making meals available to our students during remote learning is a critical component to addressing the well-being of our students. Quest has provided an MOU for this service to be in effect until normal operations can occur. The District would be charged on a per meal basis during this alternative meal option.
Attachments: (1)

Due to the decision to hold school remotely through October 30, 2020, the 2020-2021 school calendar is being amended to reflect Remote Learning Days from September 10 through October 29, 2020. October 9, 2020 will no longer be an early dismissal day. 
Attachments: (1)
6.a. RECOMMENDED MOTION: That the Board of Education approve the amended 2020-2021 school calendar.
7. Student Parking Fees - (Roll Call)
The school has opened the 2020-2021 school year under a full remote/e-learning model due to the current COVID pandemic and the extraordinary amount of requirements, procedures, and protocols that need to be followed. However, when some type of in-person attendance is feasible, the model that will be used will most likely involve a hybrid format with small sections of students attending.  At the same time, the district will need to be prepared to revert back to a remote model should changes in Executive Orders and/or circumstances in the area demand that change.  Student use of the student parking lots will therefore be significantly diminished and sporadic throughout the year.
7.a. RECOMMENDED MOTION: That the Board of Education suspend the student parking fee for the 2020-2021 school year.
EXECUTIVE SESSION - only if needed and with the understanding that possible action could be taken on matters discussed in closed session.
