NORTH BALTIMORE — A collection site for donated shoes and clothes has been set up outside North Baltimore schools, the school board heard Tuesday.

Collection bins are located near the entrance to the school parking lot.

Also, the amount of aluminum cans collected at a dropoff site has increased, noted North Baltimore High School Principal Bob Falkenstein.

Separately, letters of intent to retire at the end of this school year were accepted from intervention specialists Steven Green and Kevin Switzer, bus driver Vicki Grilliot and head custodian Larry Snyder.

Interviews to fill these vacancies are being scheduled, according to Superintendent Ryan Delaney.

Separately, a drainage issue at a school ball diamond is being addressed, the school board was informed.

Apparently, a collection of sand, silt and clay has created a barrier in the field, affecting drainage.

Boes Excavating will be at the site today to offer opinions, Delaney added.

“There’s no break in any (drainage) line,” the superintendent said. “I’ll keep you informed.”

In other business, the school board heard that school safety plans have been approved.
