The Allegany County Board of Education will meet in closed session today to begin to review options for each stage of the state’s plan in preparation for opening schools August  26th  for students.

        > Haven’t been anywhere near the mall for a long time (as well as most other people) but that’s interesting. Is it Trooper 5 or a private machine?
        Is it black?

          Looks like a private helicopter. Not Trooper 5 that I can tell. It is picking things up on a tether hanging below it like maybe from some sort of staging area near the Walmart end. Today is the first day I haven’t seen or heard it for a couple weeks. I live near the mall on the other side of Winchester Rd.

            > I don’t know what you see on the tether but it might be a series of circular saws used to trim tree limbs along power lines. If it is it’s something to see.

    I don’t understand why a plan hasn’t already been developed. So we still won’t know anything until 2 weeks before school starts??

      There are a number of counties down state that have already said that there will be distance learning until January 22.
