October - 2015 - All school nurses in Iowa received an alert today that cases of mumps have increased at the University of Iowa. While cases were first identified in July, the number of cases slowed during August & early September. Recently, the number of cases at the University has again increased. So far, it looks like Johnson County is the only county in Iowa affected, but that could change. I've included a fact sheet you may be interested in reading. If I hear of any cases in or near Hamilton County, I'll follow what our local public health department dictates, but for now, this is just an FYI.
To: Prospective South Hamilton Director District #2 Appointee Candidates
From: Ken Howard, Superintendent
- On behalf of the South Hamilton Board of Directors –
Re: South Hamilton Board Director Appointment District #2
At the regular board meeting held September 14th, 2015 the canvased results of the previous week’s board of director’s election were presented and received. At the same session the district read a letter from the patron who had been provisionally named the director-elect in District #2 stating she was unable to serve due to a misinterpretation of the present district boundaries. The board accepted the patron’s letter of decline; effectively leaving the district’s seat vacant.
Thus, the South Hamilton Community Schools Board of Directors has opted to appoint a director to the currently unoccupied District #2 seat at the board table. A public notice of this intention was placed in the local newspaper (see below) this past week. Consequently, prior to the October 12th, 2015 board meeting the objective is to identify prospective candidates for appointment.
