Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele and the Police Chiefs Association of Montgomery County announced the locations for the bi-annual prescription drug Take Back Day, scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., this Saturday, April 28.

McGloin said during the meeting that district officials know what they want, but they need someone "who can help us figure how to make it happen and determine the cost."
Melanie Cunningham, a board member and chair of the committee, "is pretty sure" the three-person panel will recommend that the full board put out a request for proposal to architectural firms to help come up with a conceptual plan to convert the middle school.
Administrators have an idea where they want to utilize classrooms, according to McGloin. She said they need to replace the lockers and create cubbyholes in the classrooms. The superintendent also suggested the need for an elevator.
