OTTAWA–Last minute pleas were made to keep the Eisenhower Elementary School open…but it was to no avail.  The Ottawa Board of Education has voted 7-0 to close Eisenhower at the end of this school year.  Before the vote, Erin Chappel, who taught for 3 years at Lincoln Elementary, made a last-minute plea to use what she called common sense, and not to close the school and to keep an open mind.
