Due to the current public health crisis, most in-person meetings are suspended. Meetings that are continuing to meet virtually are highlighted in the schedule below.

If you are unable to access the meeting from a computer or smart/mobile device, you should be able to use a phone. Dial 1-669-900-6833 and enter the meeting code (the last 9 numbers of the link) with password if needed.

In addition, the District has created a Zoom account that groups may use to host virtual meetings. Please reach out to webadmin@alanonbythebay.org to inquire about using the account for your meetings.
