Good morning North Country! Today is Monday, September 27th and it is an M day. I hope you all enjoyed a beautiful fall weekend.
Lunchroom Changes - beginning today, we will be adjusting some of our lunchroom seating and eating areas to promote more physical distancing during lunches. The courtyard and the tents will no longer be open for eating, but can be accessed for mask breaks after you have finished eating. Room 380 in the career center is now open for lunches, and juniors and seniors can still eat in the senior lounge. Also, beginning today, seating in lunch areas will use a ‘2 by 2’ seating arrangement. This means that there should only be 2 people at each table, and there should be 2 seats between you. We hope this will be a temporary change, but it is necessary given the high case counts in our area. Thank you in advance for your cooperation to create more distance at lunches and to help us avoid more stringent seating like we had last year.
Yesterday, Aleena Kearse, Nyla Rossi, Kaeleb Berthiaume, Alexis Derouchie and Lydia Ste. Marie, members of our Rotary Interact club teamed up with three members of the North Country Union Junior High's Interact club to help stuff ducks for the duck regatta. Newport Rotarians were extremely appreciative of this group and happy to have such a great group of teenagers demonstrating service above self.
