    Good morning,

     

    I decided to try this a different way. The link below should provide you with a zipped file that contains all PDF files.

     

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1w3J8EGeWzMHnwtYpmRcA8eVpF0TtWII2/view?usp=sharing

     

    Please let me know if you are unable to download this file. You will need to extract it and it will contain all emails from Jennifer Bennett for the periods requested.

     

    Thanks
    Marsha Abbott

    Good afternoon Marsha,

     

    Thank you for the update on September 2nd! Our apologies that we haven’t replied yet, this email must’ve gotten lost in our inbox.

     

    Please send the flash drive to:
    Sunshine Request
    PO Box 17391
    Asheville NC, 28816

     

    Additionally, please send the package in such a way that a signature is not required, and let us know when it is sent. If you can please provide tracking information once it’s sent we will monitor it that way and will let you know as soon as we are able to get back to the PO Box and receive it.

     

    Thank you so much for your help with this request!

    Good morning,

     

    I have the flash drive ready. What address do I need to mail the flash drive to? The files are too large to send via email and would take forever to upload them again for you to access.

     

    Thanks
    Marsha Abbott

    Good morning,

     

    We are still waiting on our attorney to release the documents. They have been provided to him for approval to release. We are contacting him today to see where he stands on the issue.

     

    Thank you for your patience.

    Good afternoon,

     

    I am working on getting this information to our attorney for final approval to submit to you. I decided to just zip the files and send them to the attorney as is rather than creating multiple PDFs by month.

     

    Thanks
    Marsha

    Good morning,

     

    I am working on still pulling this information into PDFs. I have all the emails but it is a lot of them. My machine will not process more than about 100 at a time converting them to PDFs. Once I complete the files, I need to send to our attorney and he will then forward to you.

     

    Thanks

    Good evening,

     

    I wanted to let you know that I am working on this request. It is taking a while to pull the emails into a format that will allow me to create multiple PDF documents as it is a lot of data. I hope to have it completed soon.

     

    Thanks

    Good afternoon Vance County, NC Schools,

     

    We received a new records request via our site www.sunshinerequest.com for info that may be available in your office. If there’s another party that we should be contacting about this request then please let us know.

     

    I work for a website called Sunshine Request www.sunshinerequest.com. We built a site that makes it easier to make public records requests by filling out a simple form, and the results of any requests are posted on our site. This allows citizens to learn more about our local government, while saving staff from having to fulfill duplicate requests. If you have any questions about the project, please let me know, and I’ll be happy to answer.

     

    We acknowledge and are sensitive to the fact that you’re likely extra busy due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But if possible, if you could please provide a rough timeline as to when the request may be completed, we’ll wait to follow up again until around the time period you specify.

     

    Here are the details:
