This Week’s Need to Know – 03/01/2018

Thank you to everyone that came out on Monday night for our prayer night for Keystone Central School District.  Please continue to lift up our teachers, administrators, and school board in your prayers.  Monday night’s meeting was an important reminder that we need to gather as a community to pray for our leaders.  We should also be praying individually for these people as well.  In the very near future, very big decisions are going to be made, and the effects will be felt by our entire community.  Please continue to lift up our school board as they navigate through these decisions.

Below, they are listed by name.

Acting Superintendent – Dr. Alan Lonoconus
School Board of Directors – Jennifer Bottorf, Roger Elling, Boise Miller, Wayne Koch, Eric Probert, Charles Rosamilia, Billie Rupert, Debbie Smith, Tracy Smith
