Lake Placid Elementary principal hired



Wood is a former dean of students from Saranac Lake Middle School. Lindsay was laid off amid budget cuts from her position as principal at Bloomingdale Elementary School.

Latella, 35, is moving here.

“He and his wife, Melissa, have been in Lake Placid looking for a house,” Catania said.

Latella spent a good portion of last week in Lake Placid, attending the School Board meeting last Thursday. And he visited Lake Placid Elementary last Friday.

Mrs. Latella is also a school teacher who will be leaving the Hamilton Central School District, Catania said.

They have two young children.

A successful soccer coach, Latella led Hamilton’s Emerald Knights to Section III Class D championships four years in a row, defeating Chazy Central Rural School in 2008 and 2011.

Hamilton is a small community south of Utica. Latella has worked as a teacher there since 2001.

The newly hired principal could not be reached for comment.
