The superintendent discussed the direction that the building committee is looking at regarding next steps. The board discussed the difficulty with getting the information out to the public. There was discussion of using Facebook, Twitter or perhaps mailings.


Weekend Facility Use: The Superintendent shared that the Noble High School is in good custodial shape to allow weekend building use.. After speaking to Mr. Moore, we believe that events at the elementary schools will also happen, with the disclaimer that if an illness or emergency happens and we do not have coverage, the event may be cancelled. With the increased expense of custodial staff, most likely a fee to the organizations will be charged.


Educational Updates:

Superintendent Beauvais reported some updates:


Josie Chadbourne has been named 2021-22 SMAA Field Hockey Co Coach of the year!


The football team has a semi final game on Friday night.


Anthony Prak was featured in the Sentinel for outstanding National Merit Scholarship Program.


Karli Kruse, a NHS senior, provided for her National Honor Society project she cleaned up the courts Tennis. Aaron Moore has hopes for a future team.


The Superintendent proposed a change in notification of COVID cases. A realtime dashboard will be created that students, staff and parents can use to see the number of reported cases per week. This will cut down on “Messenger overload” .


Ms Beauvais updated Staff and Student attendance in the past two weeks: student range was a low of 78% present to 96% present. Staff Attendance ranged from 91% present to 97% present.


York Hospital has contacted us to set up vaccine clinics for afterschool for ages 5-11. The thought would be to hold this at Noble Middle Schools and would be an after school event. Parents would have to bring their children.


Employment: Retirement:


We would like to publicly acknowledge their dedication and commitment to our schools. Thank you so very much.


Sandy Gray Vivian E Hussey School, Educational Technician - 25 years.

Rhonda Bachelder Lebanon Elementary School, Educational Technician- 24 years.

Other Business:


Mr. Doiron asked the question about storm days and whether or not we will be able to be remote for some of them. Currently we are not able to provide the work around so that we can get meals to students prior to a snow day for it to count. We will continue to utilize traditional snow days until such a time when we can figure out the meal options.


North Berwick Democrats had a meeting last night and they shared that they would like to be involved in helping to spread the word about the schools and would like to be supportive.


Ms. Hagenbuch made a motion and it was seconded by Ms. Lovejoy to adjourn the meeting. All members voted in favor and the motion passed. Out at 7:51 pm
