School district seeks increased security

Milton School District looks to increase its security measures as soon as this September. In June, the district’s schools were three of 261 statewide to apply for safety grants from the Vt.

Mosquitoes assailed visitors who forgot their bug spray while the river babbled down falls and trickled over stones.

Ultimate approved as varsity sport

On June 25, the Milton School Board granted Ultimate Frisbee varsity status in a 3-2 vote. The team will be able to play at the junior varsity and varsity levels beginning in the spring season 2019. “Ultimate is a nice sport for high school because kids don’t have to be proficient in it for years and years to do it,” school board vice-chairman Rick Dooley said. “They can step in and do it … It’s encompassing, it’s co-ed.” Varsity status will gain Milton Ultimate a stipend for a coach – or can be split between two co-coaches – transportation,...
