While the world has been in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic for a number of weeks, there have been some unintended consequences. Many construction crews across the country are continuing to work, and that applies to the crew performing the upgrades at Maplecrest Elementary in Lebanon. R-3 Superintendent, Dr. David Schmitz says, with students not in the facility, the construction crew has been able to make an incredible amount of progress……….

That project was scheduled to be completed shortly after students returned for the Fall Semester but could wrap up even sooner than expected if students do not return to the classroom this school year. Dr. Schmitz also provided Regional Radio News with an update on Tuesday night’s regularly scheduled board meeting. Dr. Schmitz says those who want to participate can do so on Zoom, or on YouTube………

The link to participate in Tuesday night’s board meeting will be provided on Friday on the district’s website.
