“I would ask that we take a moment to reflect on the tragic events and the turmoil that has swept across the nation recently," said NHCS Board of Education Chairwoman Lisa Estep. "In recent times, we have been living behind walls. This is a time when the walls between us need to come down, even if only virtually, not be reinforced. We need to be in unity instead of experiencing greater separation.”
