Rivers Reach had scheduled to use the hall each Tuesday through June for a serie of dance classes. She said the classes are "offered as a service to the community a large." Recently, the classes were cancelled or held in the basement due to basketball practice in the hall. The policy is that Newbury student activities have priority regardless of which activity was scheduled first. Principal Edward Arnold said, "Our boys and girls in basketball come first. Also, our concern was renting the hall free when we have ex- penses." Nancy Benson said, "I'm feeling badly that you didn't know that your program could be preempted by school ac- tivities." Superintendent John Fontana said, "So the problem is keeping the downstairs open and deciding who moves the tables." Moving the tables and chairs will be arranged with principal Arnold. In other matters, Nancy Benson, secretary of the school board,, resigned her position as of April 1, 1981 as the Bensons will be moving to Connecticut on that date. The Parent-Teacher Organization sent a letter to the board noting the lack of play equipment for grades four through six, and the resulting boredom. They suggested the use of the town hall at recess. Action on accepting a new form for the report card will be delayed until the Newbury Design committee finishes its study. Board members signed a special education form authorizing the state to provide reimbursement for two special education students from Newbury for the coming year (one residential and one in the Oxbow program). The state pays the difference between the average per-pupil educational programs. The folh)wing were items in Principal Arnold's report: --On Feb. 3, 1981, Dynamic Integrations (!orp. of Fairlee, conducted an energy audit of the school. .... Two girls from the Oxbow Vocational Center are working in the elementary school two hours a (lay, four days a week. ..... The new wiring in the hallway will be completed this month The board instructed the repair of one faulty socket immediately and requested an estimate for the entire job. The Blue Mountain School Annual Reports are at pick-up places in the area rather than being mailed to each tax- payer. Delores I)rugach asked "if we might consider doing the same?"
