Last call for candidates!

If you were wavering on the fence and thought you missed your chance to run for the Board of Ed this year -- great news! Due to the snowstorm on Monday and the possible confusion this may have caused to potential candidates, the governor extended the deadline till TODAY at 4:00 p.m. to submit petitions to get your name on the ballot for the April 21 election.

For the record, our Ed Center was open ALL DAY on Monday to accept petitions, signs were posted at the doors and a notice was placed on the website. But, it's fair enough to say that just in case you missed it, you can still decide to run.

Pop on over to the Ed Center, see Mr. DeSimone in the Business Office. Get 10 (I think) signatures of registered voters, get it NOTARIZED and turn it back in by 4:00 Verizon Wireless time.
