Board Meeting Oct. 8th

Save-the-Date! The October 8th Board meeting will feature a discussion on stadium lights! Staff’s report will outline the benefits for students of the installation of these lights, recommendations regarding ways to mitigate the effects of stadium lights on residents who live close to the schools, and the community engagement process. Please mark your calendar. To see the postcard mailed to the surrounding neighborhood of each of our five schools that do not have permanent stadium lights, view a community flyer so you can tell your friends, and to learn more background, visit www.smuhsd.org/stadiumlights.
