Voters in Warm Springs approved a new K through 8th grade school in their second attempt to approve a school referendum.  The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs approved the measure on Tuesday by the same percentage as in May, about 77%, but in May, they didn't have the required one third of all Tribal members voting.  This time they did.  509-J School Board Member Laurie Danzuka is relieved.  “Oh, it means we're going to have a safe school environment.  Our kids deserve that.  Our current building is really an old building.  A lot of modulars are being used, so there's a lot of down time between classes.  The kids also have to cross the street for the cafeteria.  That's always an issue.  Plus, the current building is located along Highway 26.  The school district plans to open the new school in the fall of 2014.
