The rescheduled RCHCA meeting is MONDAY OCTOBER 3 as correctly stated on the website notice. Please revisit the site regularly to check on any updates regarding this important meeting and its agenda.
The RCHCA meeting scheduled for September 20 has been postponed until Monday, October 3 at 7:30. The new meeting will be at Grace Episcopal Day School, 9411 Connecticut Ave. in the multi-purpose room, at 7:30 p.m. The agenda is unchanged and will focus on an update and a vote regarding the proposed use of the Rock Creek Hills Local Park for a new middle school for the BCC cluster. This unfortunate postponement was caused by the School Board’s failure to complete the feasibility study for the proposed middle school by September 8, 2011. In addition to the middle school issue, we will be discussing the security issues raised in the Fall 2011 Newsletter.There will be additional information provided in the near future so please monitor both the RCHCA website and RCHCAnet to stay abreast of events.
