SCHOOLS BEEF UP SECURITY FOR ELECTION DAY

The voting machine in Silver Creek High School may be idle until Election Day, but a security plan has been put into effect, Superintendent Gordon T. Salisbury told the Board of Education on Wednesday.

He said details will be given to high school teachers today and elementary teachers Friday.

"We will practice a lock-down," he said.

To heighten awareness and to protect students, staff and voters, Salisbury said, the state Education Department has warned districts whose schools are used as polling places.

Board members will review ideas for a five-year district plan at a workshop session Nov. 13 at a time and location to be set. Salisbury said the plan eventually will include suggestions from staff and district residents.

The board recognized the Native American program and acknowledged Neil John Hilliker, Peter Howard and Ann Tahament as instructors. The Seneca language is taught at Silver Creek schools.
