All meetings will be held in the High School Little Theatre, 3202 43rd Street, New Brighton, PA at 7:30 pm.

**The December 7, 2020 Board Meeting has been moved to a virtual setting due to the rise in Covid cases within Beaver County and the multi-week identification of substantial levels of community transmission.  Details on participating in the virtual meeting can be found on the News section on the main page of our website.**

**The September through December meetings of the Board will be held in the High School Central Gymnasium so to provide better social distancing opportunity.  All attendees will be required to wear a mask at all times.  If an attendee has a medical reason which would prevent mask wearing, we ask that you contact us in advance so we can make arrangements to provide a safe location within the meeting for you to sit and participate.  You may contact Ms. Lorie Foster, Board Secretary, at 724-843-1795 x409.**
