Mrs Kelly Peoples, Principal at Steele Jr. High was present at the Council Meeting. She stated that school is starting on August 20, 2020 and they are in need of a Sanitizing Machine. The St. Clair County Board of Education selected one that they are recommending and asked the school Principals to seek funding from their respective municipalities. She stated this machine will be used when the students change classrooms, after each P.E. class in the gymnasium, after school is out, and many other times during the day.
