We want to remind students and families that many COVID-19 protocols remain in place even though the masking policy has changed to recommended but optional. Please take note of these items:
1. Students are still expected to self-screen every morning. The screener is attached.
2. Students who display symptoms of COVID-19 still need a negative test to return to school.

Student Leadership Opportunity- New Hampshire Legislative Youth Council
As a statutory committee of the New Hampshire legislature, the Council was established by RSA 19k:1 and consists of 19 youth of ages 15-22 from across the state. The Council examines issues of importance to youth, ranging from education, employment, and strategies to increase youth civic engagement to safe environments for youth, substance abuse, and mental health. The Council advises the legislature through meetings with legislators, statements/testimony, and an annual report of policy recommendations.
This is an incredible opportunity that allows students one-on-one interaction with New Hampshire State legislators. Students learn how to engage with the democratic process, advocate for their beliefs, and lead their peers. The Council meets once a month in Concord for two hours.
The Council is accepting applications from May 1st - June 30th. We would greatly appreciate it if you could share this opportunity with your students.
If interested, students can email their application (linked below) to our email address at [email protected].
Please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] with any questions.
