WHITEFIELD — Some parents are voicing concerns about a proposal to move the 7th and 8th grade classes of White Mountains Regional School District SAU 36 into the high school beginning in the 2021-2022 school year.

“As a parent of a sixth-grader, I have a lot of concerns,” said Heather Kenison, of Lancaster. “You are asking us to have our kids to grow up faster. There is more exposure to the drugs and alcohol and peer pressure. I know they could get that in elementary school, but as a parent I try to limit that interaction as to who my kids are with.”
