OSHA tracking of staff who are vaccinated: Currently this is at the supreme court level and a decision has not been made yet. If the mandate goes through, we are in the process of developing the tracking system.


The board then discussed the North Berwick Elementary School fifth graders moving to the Knowlton school. There was some discussion about the mixing or non mixing of the towns. There are pluses and minuses on both sides. The board felt that it would be good to hear from Ms. Keniston, ELKS principal and Mr. Archambault, NBES principal as to their opinions. We will schedule them to come to a meeting to discuss it in the near future.
