PRAS hires two new staff members

LEROY — Two new employees have been added to Pine River Area Schools.

According to Kathy Kassuba, administrative assistant to the superintendent, board of education members approved the positions of Mike Green as a district bus driver and Missy Long as a non-instructional paraprofessional during a meeting on Sept. 14.

In other business, the board approved a motion to enter into an agreement with Michigan Educational Transportation Services, Inc. for substitute bus drivers through June 30, 2018. The agreement was necessary due to a shortage of substitute drivers in the district, Kassuba added.
