HOLIDAY TIME — Gabby Beaman and her pal Holden, a St. Bernard puppy, want to remind readers that The I-O will be closed on Labor Day. The paper will be put together on Wednesday and put out on Thursday. We hope everyone has a super and safe Holiday as the summer season winds down. I-O Photo by Buck Traxler
County commissioners moved to approve an increase of salary of one percent (.19 cents per hour) for all elected officials on Wednesday.
Full-time and part-time employees will also receive a pay raise of .19 cents.
The increase will only be for 10 months, effective on the September payroll through June 2011 payroll.
This results in less than $32 per month for full-time employee salary and will just cover the additional employee cost for health insurance.
Special to the I-O by Lynn Utterback, Superintendent of Schools
Conrad Schools are open for business again this week.
We are excited to begin a new year and have quite a few changes that we would like to share with our students, parents and community.
First of all, we have a new web site at www.conradschools.org .
On this web site you will be able to access district and individual school calendars. In addition, current announcements, event schedules and times, lunch menus, staff directories and information, and a plethora of other information. Families may register at www.conradschools.org to receive important announcements automatically about school closings, disasters, or schedule changes.
