Board members will meet in the Atlantic High School Library and it will be live-streamed on YouTube. Activities Director Andrew Mitchell said, “Superintendent Steven Barber is going to recommend masks for the rest of the school year.” According to Mitchell, since we’ve had the mask mandate, we’ve have less people quarantine.
