“Shame on you! Shame on you!” a rowdy and riled up crowd of ESP workers jeered following a decision by committee Chair Kimberly Page to adjourn the meeting prior to a scheduled public comment session.

Coventry students return to the classroom

COVENTRY — Last year, school was postponed five days due to Tropical Storm Irene, but this year however, the sun was shining as students awaited their buses early yesterday morning.

As students filed into school, some veterans of the process, and others new to the scene, administrators greeted them with smiles.

Assistant Principal at Coventry High School, Brooke Macomber explained that “this was the smoothest opening I’ve seen at this school in years.”
