November 28, 2020

Dear Families,

We were informed today of a confirmed case of COVID-19 at Memorial School. We are actively working with and following guidelines from the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), conducting contact tracing as requested.

Out of an abundance of caution following the two successive cases of COVID, we will be moving to remote learning at Memorial School, and only Memorial School, beginning Monday, November 30 through Friday, December 4, 2020.

Additionally, the remote learning schedule for next week will follow the in person schedule that students have been using these past four weeks, beginning with Morning Meeting at 8:30AM.

Any family needing a device for next week should email Ryan McCluskey, Memorial School Principal, at to arrange a pick up time on Monday morning between 8:00AM and 11:00AM. Students will not be penalized for any tardiness on Monday, November 30th, especially if a device pick up is needed.
