  1. Review, Discuss, and Approve the School Safety Report
    1. Council discussed the drills Park Lane must hold each month. Parents appreciate Principal Jeffery’s child appropriate language while managing the drill process.
    2. Discussed sending out communication about the drill afterwards through Parent Square so parents can follow up with their children.
    3. Motion to approve the school safety report: Janell Myrick, Second: Jeanette Knight, Council unanimous in the affirmative
  2. Review, Discuss, and Approve SAFE Routes Plan
    1. Not much has changed with the SAFE Routes Plan for the school. The parking lot is consistently the highest priority issue and unfortunately can’t be fixed without help from the district. Some council members have noticed more and more parents crossing the street without a crosswalk setting a dangerous precedent and example. Some parents are also parking in the U. We discussed using yard signs to direct traffic. We would need to include this item on the next agenda if we wanted to allocate budget dollars to print.
    2. Teenagers getting on the roof is also an area of concern as well as the sidewalk between the LDS church building and the school. This sidewalk is not typically shoveled during the school week.
    3. Motion to approve the SAFE Routes Plan: Ashley Mills, Second: Joseph Demma, Council unanimous in the affirmative
  1. Budget Requests
    1. Only 1 – organization bins for Ms. Velez’s classroom.
      1. Motion to approve: Amanda May, Second: Jen Coccimiglio, Council unanimous in the affirmative – Gio Velez abstained from voting
