Epsom

Epsom is one of just a handful of towns in New Hampshire that doesn't have full-day kindergarten. 

But, on Tuesday, the Epsom School Board voted 3-1  to put full-day kindergarten on a warrant article for Town Meeting day in March. 

Carol Zink-Mailloux is part of the Full Day Kindergarten Committee, a group of parents who want to see that become a reality.

She says the group has been pushing for this to get to a town vote for the past year.

At Epsom Central School, a mural map of the United States features a small confederate flag planted on the southeastern states.

Tuesday night, the Epsom School Board voted 3-2 to defeat a motion to remove or alter the mural to remove that flag. It's a debate that had echoes of the unrest surrounding Confederate monuments in other parts of the country.
