Schools as Polling Places for Voting on Nov. 8th

posted Nov 7, 2016, 7:36 AM by Roz Walton

We want to make sure all citizens are aware that our schools that are being used as polling sites for voting on November 8, 2016 (Washburn, Sherwood Heights, Fairview, and Auburn Middle School) have sent letters home to parents to outline the precautions taken at each location. Due to the anticipated volume of voters, we have taken precautions to review the polling area at each location to make sure there is no access to any other part of the school. In addition, there will be a police officer monitoring the voting area to ensure safety.


Parents were encouraged to vote early to avoid crowded parking lots and long lines on election day through the use of walk-in absentee ballots that were available at Auburn Hall through November 3rd.

                          .

All citizens need to be cautious traveling in the area of the schools on election day due to voter traffic. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work with the city to provide voters an opportunity to vote while we continue to educate our students.


We also want you to know that if you decide to not send your child to school on November 8, 2016, due to concerns about the public accessing the polling location, it will be an excused absence. Please call the school in advance to let the secretary know your decision to not send your child on election day.


If you would like to read the entire letter sent to parents by each school that is a polling site, please click on the attached letters below.

Drug Event Auburn Lewiston Operation Community SAFER

posted Aug 9, 2016, 5:19 AM by Roz Walton

 A Congressional Town Hall Hosted By Maine’s 2nd District Congressman Bruce Poliquin 

Founding member of the Congressional Bipartisan Task Force to Combat the Heroin Epidemic 

6 – 8 p.m., Tuesday, August 16 Kirk Hall, Central Maine Community College, 1250 Turner St., Auburn 

Those on the front lines of Maine’s deadly opioid epidemic say the most common call they receive is from parents who don’t know where to turn as they watch a loved one struggle with a substance use disorder. And, a recent state taskforce concluded that if families were better educated and engaged in evidence-based prevention, treatment and recovery, youth would be guided away from substance use towards paths of success and wellness. 

Hosted by Our Congressman Bruce Poliquin, this Congressional Town Hall will provide a safe, supportive space for families to come together and learn proven prevention strategies and local treatment and recovery resources so they can more constructively support their loved ones and communities. In addition to inspiring stories from area families supporting a loved one who is addicted or in recovery, attendees will have time to talk directly with Central Maine’s leading prevention, treatment, law enforcement and health care leaders, and each other.
