Blumberg leading Long Lake board of ed


Express News Staff

LONG LAKE – The Long Lake Central School Board of Education has chosen Christine Blumberg as its new president, but has yet to choose a vice president.

The vote was Tuesday, July 9. The meeting included reorganization items, with the only change being a switch in the positions held by Kristen Lance and Lisa Walker.

Lance is now Secretary to Superintendent Mary Dickerson and Walker is now district treasurer. All other appointments remain the same as last year.

Paul Roalsvig was sworn in as a BOE member July 1, replacing Hallie Bond, whose term ended June 30, but there is still a vacancy due to Kristen Brosnan’s resignation.

Since no one filed a petition to run for the empty seat, there will be a write-in campaign with a vote set for Aug. 6.


-- Whitney Bennett was approved as a substitute teacher pending fingerprint clearance.

-- Hannah Payne has resigned as teaching assistant. She is leaving for a kindergarten teaching position in Old Forge.

-- The school will advertise for new half-time pre-K teacher.

-- The board approved Speech-Language Pathologist Becky Pelton’s, request for a leave of absence from Nov. 14 through Dec. 6.

The LLCS BOE will next meet Thursday, Aug. 8, starting at 7 p.m. in the cafeteria.
