Sworn in:� Ms. Sally McGeehan.� She said the state did the walk-thru for safety.

It will be in the church basement and walls will be put up.� The staff will escort children into the school once they are used to the classroom.� The Board Attorney stated a school is of inherent value to the community, the question being is the site suitable for this use.� Mr. Vitale was concerned about the safety of loading the kids from the curb into the car and would like to see off-street drop-off but if the state agreed with the safety factor, it is okay with him.� Ms. McGeehan said front drop-off is safer than using the childrens� play area.� Mr. Rappa suggested the drop-off would be in a �no parking� area.� Mr. Schlenker would like to see the plans and have Dr. Disko review safety of the area and documentation of State approval.� Ms. McGeehan said there are two entrances into the large room, and two entrances going into the classroom.
