School Board Election & Budget Vote

The district’s annual budget vote is slated for Tuesday, May 18. Polls will be open at the Lake Placid Elementary School and at the Wilmington Community Center from 2 to 9 p.m. Voters who want to vote by absentee ballot can contact Karen Angelopoulos at lpdistrictclerk@lakeplacidcsd.net for more information. Voters who want more information on the budget can view the entire budget document on the school’s website at www.lpcsd.org.

Also on the ballot, voters will see three candidates for three school board seats: Daniel Cash, Martha Prichard Spear and Colleen Locke. All three are incumbents. While all three will be elected, the two with the most votes will win full three-year terms while the third-place finisher will get a one-year unexpired term, which Cash is currently filling.

Nurse Appreciation Week

May 6-12 was Nurse Appreciation Week. We want to take a moment and say a huge THANK YOU to our dedicated and fearless school nurse, Cora Clark! We may be biased, but we think she's the best school nurse in the world and we are so lucky to have her!

Have you gotten your COVID Vaccine???

If you have received either your first or both of your Covid vaccine shots, please let Nurse Cora know so that she can add that information to your permanent health record.

As of this week, everyone aged 12 and up is now eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine in New York State.

Kinney Drugs is now offering the Pfizer vaccine for ages 12+. To book an appointment, go to https://secure.kinneydrugs.com/

You can look for appointments or vaccine sites here: https://am-i-eligible.covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/
