"Times have changed and we should probably change with the times," was Elementary Principal Chuck Pirone's comment on a request presented to the Elk Lake School Board on April 30 by Student Council member Robyn McMicken.
Robyn was asking that the shoe/dress code be changed. As of last fall sandals were allowed only if they included straps across the back, and no flip-flops were permitted, due to safety issues. With a trend in shoe wear to backless shoes, including clogs and sneakers, students were seeing their fashions limited.
The Blue Ridge School Board concentrated its efforts at a workshop on April 28 on a new budget for the fiscal year that will begin on July 1. Board President Alan Hall grilled his administrators for two and a half hours on many of the fine points in the 13-million-dollar spending plan. A budget proposal will be formally adopted at the next business meeting, on May 12. The public will then have 30 days to comment before the Board makes its final decisions.
