Change in Venue for Thursday’s Board Meetings:

This Thursday’s board meetings, originally scheduled to take place at Antimony Elementary, have been moved to the Best Western Plus - Bryce Canyon Grand Hotel in the Ponderosa Conference Room.

The timing of the meetings will remain the same:

3:00 pm - Work Meeting
5:00 pm - Regular Board Meeting

The reason for this change is to accommodate community members who wish to participate in both the school board meetings, and the political event which is also being held that evening across the street at Ruby’s Inn.
