A coronavirus outbreak among students at Windham High School will force that school to remain remote for at least the next week.

The school was supposed to reopen with a hybrid model on Wednesday, but news that sixteen students had tested positive for COVID-19 prompted the school to change its plans last minute and reopen with a remote model.

Derry and its surrounding towns are kicking off their 300th year anniversary this weekend with bagpipes, craft demonstrations and history lectures.

The region was originally inhabited by Penacook Abenaki people, before it was colonized in 1719 by a group of Ulster Scots (Scots-Irish) families fleeing religious persecution from Northern Ireland.

They named it the "Nutfield Settlement," and their journey marked the beginning of more than a century of Scots-Irish immigration to the U.S.

Several towns in southern New Hampshire will be celebrating their tricentennial in 2019.

The settlement of Nutfield - now known as Derry, Londonderry, and Windham - became the first inland settlement of Europeans in the Merrimack Valley in 1719.

It comprised 16 Scots Irish families who had fled religious persecution in their hometown of Aghadowey, in the Irish County of Londonderry.

City and town officials in New Hampshire are getting an influx in calls from people wanting to pay their 2018 property taxes early...in this tax year.

Four wells in a neighborhood in Windham contain elevated levels of PFCs, a chemical contaminant, according to test results released Friday by the state’s Department of Environmental Services.
