Neubauer qualified for the national piano performance competition. According to Funk, she will attend an in-person audition when she arrives at Indy, to determine which of several large public venues she will perform in for the remainder of the competition.

“We are very happy to see her hopefully on a national FFA stage,” said Seibert, acknowledging Neubauer’s exceptional musical gifts and the hard work she put into her entry into the competition.

Other highlights of the trip will include agricultural and industrial tours, the world’s largest academic and professional exhibition, general sessions with keynote speakers, workshops and possibly a concert.

Funk recalled that a national FFA convention was a formative experience that put him on the path where he is today.

“This coincided with October being National Disability Employment Awareness Month,” Clark said. “The CAD appointed us.

Clark thanked the Hubbard County Developmental Achievement Center (DAC) for letting the restoration program tap into the “talented and dedicated employee pool” of their clients, DAC staff and professional coaches to prepare their clients for success. , the school kitchen staff for their daily leadership and, above all, the DAC customers “because we really couldn’t do what we do without them”.

Noting that there will be an awards ceremony later in October, Clark added that it is strange to be recognized when “they are the ones who should receive the award.”

In matters of consent and general affairs, the school board:

  • Hired Adam Gudmundson as a bus driver, Angela Larson as a college success and integration paraprofessional, Jason Haas as a junior boys basketball coach, Brenna Smith as a paraprofessional in special education in college, Chris Norton as Transportation Supervisor effective Oct. 15, and Jill Stevenson as Director of Programs and Education.

  • Approved Jill Dickinson’s contract as Director of Community Education for 2021-2023.

  • Approval of a GoFundMe fundraiser for the Esports club.

  • Cooperation agreements approved with the Sebeka school for gymnastics and with Walker-Hackensack-Akeley for men’s hockey.

  • Mandate approved for the following teachers: Josh Grev, Alexis Skajewski, Michael Lorden, Caitlin Keute-Djonne, Addy Upton, Lee Skajewski, Concha Uzozie, Savannah Lunak, Carolyn Melchert, Rita Southerton, Kelsey Undem, John Brumback, Kristi Goochey and Amber Seibert .

  • Approved a resolution appointing electoral judges for the November 2 special election on the school link.

  • Approved the district’s assurance of compliance with state and federal laws for the 2021-22 school year.

  • Recognition of donations of school supplies from Michels Pipeline and CHI St. Joseph’s Health.

Supply chain issues impacting school lunch for some local districts https://woodrosealumnae.org/supply-chain-issues-impacting-school-lunch-for-some-local-districts/ Wed, 06 Oct 2021 20:28:37 +0000 https://woodrosealumnae.org/supply-chain-issues-impacting-school-lunch-for-some-local-districts/ ATTLEBORO, Mass.

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WPRI) – Supply chain shortages remain a problem nationwide, and now local school districts are feeling the impact when it comes to feeding students.

Marc Furtado, director of finance and operations for Attleboro Public Schools, told 12 News his food service workers “made gold with thread” and crossed their fingers every day to have enough food to supply. lunch for over 3,000 students.

“It’s a daily challenge,” Furtado said. “Cheese, meat… these things were very rare. Either they’re not available at all, or the companies that store these things and transport them don’t have the availability to deliver things.

He said Attleboro had been forced to replace school lunches and adapt menus based on available food. They’ve even turned to suppliers for the missing items, but that’s a more expensive option, according to Furtado.

“We now have to buy food through normal wholesale channels that serve restaurants and things like that, so our food costs have gone up,” he added.

In Westport, the school district’s business manager Michelle Rapoza said they were facing the same problem and had no choice but to turn to suppliers.

“We’re seeing that something we may have paid $ 25.95 a case for is now $ 77 a case. It’s out of our control, ”Rapoza said.

Although they have fewer mouths to feed than Attleboro – Westport has about 1,400 students across the district – Rapoza said the impact was just as great.

“Your students sometimes come in thinking they’re eating a certain meal, and that’s not what they’re getting,” she said. “It got worse over the past two weeks. So many of our suppliers we deal with, from whom we buy all of our supplies (food and paper), have an important safeguard. “

She said sometimes food deliveries are several days late and delivered after office hours.

“I get emails at 2 am-3am saying, ‘We just loaded our trucks, we should be here tomorrow. We apologize … We are four days late.

Rapoza said they were running out of not only food items, but other supplies as well. She said they used meal trays from an office supply company.

Since it’s only October, she’s worried about what that means for the rest of the school year.

” We worry. We are worried about what will happen, how serious the situation is now, but the worst will be even worse, ”added Rapoza.

Both districts said they had not received an update from distributors on when the situation could improve. However, Attleboro’s situation has improved slightly from the first few weeks of the school year.

ASHEVILLE – Tenants, landlords, businesses, nonprofits and others who suffered damage from the remnants of Tropical Storm Fred this summer can still seek help, officials said.

Help can come in the form of grants or low-interest federal loans, officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the US Small Business Association told the Buncombe County Council of Commissioners on October 5.

“To date, we have approved $ 2.3 million for 431 households. It’s in the three county area – Buncombe Haywood, Transylvania, ”said John Boyle, Federal Disaster Recovery Coordinator at FEMA.

This amount is intended for grants in the category of individual aid. In Buncombe alone, 704 people have requested one-on-one help and 132 have been approved so far for $ 371,000, Boyle said.

All three counties and other parts of western North Carolina have been declared eligible by President Joe Biden for several types of disaster assistance.

The September 8 statement came after Fred’s remains dumped massive amounts of rain on WNC, resulting in flooding August 16-18 and six deaths, all in Haywood County.

Different aid deadlines are approaching with the first on October 7 for the category of public aid. Governments and non-profit organizations can request assistance with the removal of debris, structures or roads and other types of infrastructure.

Boyle said he was working to extend the deadline, but urged nonprofits and other entities, such as community centers, to reach out.

Those seeking help should first report the damage to their insurance company, if they are insured, and then contact government disaster relief officials.

Wetumpka, Alabama – School officials across the country are scrambling to get food on student plates amid supply chain issues and labor shortages.

About 97% of school nutrition programs are concerned about lingering supply chain issues, according to a School Nutrition Association survey.

Cacyce Davis, who heads nutrition for schools in Elmore County, Alabama, has to feed about 8,000 children for breakfast and lunch five days a week. Delayed in regular school food delivery, Davis arrives at Sam’s Club for a last minute grocery run.

“It’s a quick fix for our meal tomorrow, but it’s not a solution to the problem,” she said. “There appear to be cracks at all points in the supply chain.”

Davis spent $ 1,500 on 180 pounds of roast beef for lunch the next day. She needed the beef tips, but the other cut was all she could find at Redland Elementary to serve.

To deal with the shortage, the district has set up a makeshift warehouse to store supplies in case the situation worsens. The staff had to learn to work with pallet trucks and elevators. Staff now work long hours, storing, packing and delivering food to schools that have not received their scheduled delivery.

“We will do our best to continue to serve,” said Davis.

The US Department of Agriculture has announced it will give $ 1.5 billion to help school systems struggling to serve meals. The agency will reimburse Elmore County for Davis’ grocery shopping.
