August Report

Fall sports opened in the final week of August, following the public health guidance of the Marion Cross School, by requiring all participants and coaches to wear masks, despite vaccination status.  We will continue doing so until the school official decide otherwise.  We will also require towns that play games against Norwich wear masks when at Huntley.

Adult programs opened in Tracy Hall, with Fencing beginning to host Wednesday and Friday sessions.

Norwich Rec made the decision to open an afternoon program, working with the Norwich Public Library.  We will host this as a daily option (not weekly), until we are able to fully staff every day of the week and keep within a 6:1 ratio.   

We have closed our Summer Matters For All grant, and will work towards completing our reimbursement schedule.

Vermont Afterschool performed their site visit to our camps, and followed up by offering to fund playground equipment for Norwich.  We chose an embankment slide and a gaga pit for Barrett Playground.  They will be purchased and installed in September.
