Hooksett makes it late to school in Manchester
Manchester schools started on time Monday, giving an apparent cold shoulder to past practice, which called for city schools to follow the lead of towns that send their high school students to Manchester Central and Manchester West.
“I haven’t seen this in a long time,” said Central High Principal Ronald Mailhot, whose school educates close to 600 students from Hooksett and Candia. West instructs a smaller number of Hooksett students.
Traditionally, Manchester superintendents followed the lead of Hooksett and Candia when deciding whether to call or delay school on account of winter weather, Mailhot said.
She said she’ll continue to do what is best for Manchester, but also take the other towns into account.
The decades-long tuition agreement between Hooksett and Manchester was scuttled after complaints about the quality of Manchester schools. Eventually, the school districts agreed to cut the contract short, but skirmishes continue over enrollments for next year and future years.
