The Marshall County Board of Education met inside the Brindlee Mountain High School gymnasium Wednesday night, May 20, where it held its second monthly meeting followed by a work session. 

Superintendent Wigley said many school officials have started receiving specialized sanitation and disease control training through a program with Marshall Medical Centers. Wigley said the school had already purchased extra sanitizing equipment last year to help combat the spread of the flu. That combined with the new training, led by the Director of Food, Nutrition and Environmental Services at Marshall Medical Center North Greg French, will play a vital role in keeping schools safe and clean for students as they return to the classroom, she said.
