Good afternoon Falcons! Now is a good time for more reminders about our safety guidelines. As you have probably heard, the states and counties surrounding VT have been reclassified as either red or yellow counties. This means that if you travel to one of these counties, you must quarantine when you return to VT. The only exception to this is essential travel, such as for work or health care. In other words, a shopping trip to Littleton is not considered essential travel and would require quarantining upon return.
Announcements for today:
National Mock Student Elections: Students can vote anytime they want using a link that is included in the daily announcement email. It’s super easy, just need to follow the directions to create an account and then vote. The ballot includes federal and state elections and there are links for students to learn about candidates before voting. The deadline is October 30.

Just a reminder today to make sure that you are keeping up with your work and communicating with your teachers as the end of the first quarter is fast approaching!
Also, some clarification regarding masks and lunches. For the most part, everyone is doing very well with the physical distancing and putting masks back on when you are done eating. Thank you for your help with this. Remember, that if you would like to take your masks off for longer, you can go outside to the courtyard or tents and remove your masks as long as you are at least 6 feet apart from those around you.
Next Thursday and Friday, October 29th and 30th, will be our costume days at the high school. We hope that you will participate!
Here are the costume rules:
Costumes must adhere to school dress code, proper facial coverings/masks are still required, a halloween costume mask does not count and is not allowed, no weapons (fake or real), and no smoking/alcohol/drug themes. Besides that, we hope to see some awesome costumes next Thursday and Friday!
Playoffs are starting next week and we are looking forward to at least a couple home playoff games. For playoffs, we will be issuing tickets to coaches, and each athlete will get 4 tickets. Only people with tickets will be allowed into the venue. Athletes are welcome to give their tickets to whomever they want, and can also give any unused tickets to others or return them to the coach to give to others. If you have any questions, please see Mr. Joyal, and remember that following the NCUHS Athletics - Spectator Policy will allow us to keep events open to spectators. Also remember that you can catch all Falcon home games on www.nsnsports.net.
JV football lost to BFA St.Albans 35-14. Dakota Clark and Colton Lacasse each scored touchdowns.
JV soccer defeated Northfield/Williamstown 1-0. Silas Magee scored the game winner. Taylor Falconer picked up the shutout in net.
Have a great day!
