The Saranac Lake School Board has two new members as of Wednesday Evening’s Regular Meeting.. That’s because they’ll be joined regularly now by two student representatives from the High School.. Bailey Hendricks and Elexis will rotate their participation on the Board and will provide their input from the students perspective.. One of the issues that comes to the top of the mind for both students and parents this year is a focus on student safety..
The School District has found one particular way to provide safety for students and peace of mind for parents.. The school’s buildings are locked down during the day with access limited to entrances monitored by video surveillance. Building Principles were in attendance at the meeting and gave the school board an update. Bruce Van Weelden transferred to the Middle School from The High School… He presents the school board with the annual peace picture.. A picture taken on peace day every year and distributed to students and their families.. They also had two large prints made for display in the school..
