Dist. 84 Board discusses track team pairing

SLEEPY EYE — The District 84 Board of Education discussed future track team pairing options May 10.

Superintendent and Sleepy Eye United track coach John Cselovszki said he was contacted about pairing with the Comfrey-Cedar Mountain-Springfield track team at some point in the future. He talked favorably about the prospect.

“It makes perfect, common sense,” Cselovszki said.

School district health and safety consultant Tim Harbo said 2014 school radon testing results were all good.

“We had no readings above three pico-curies (pCi/L per liter),” Harbo said.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) set an action level to reduce radon levels when test results are at or above 4 pCiL.

Harbo said he plans to test radon and lead levels in the school next year. He estimated test costs at $400.

The board unanimously approved:

• A summer migrant school application.

• Summer school targeted services staff.

• Donations of $400 for the 3rd grade class pool party trip and $200 to the Sleepy Eye Girls Basketball program from Andrew Semple.

• Declaring the elementary bleachers surplus and offering them for public sale.
