FROM THE NEWSROOM: (THOMPSON) A vaccine clinic has been offered to the faculty and staff at Thompson Public Schools by Day Kimball Hospital, says Superintendent, Melinda Smith.

Smith says that they were contacted yesterday, and will be finalizing the details today. In Thompson, the clinic will be offered to more than just staff who work inside the schools. Smith says that she and her staff are extremely excited and they believe that with the vaccine, it will help keep the schools operating full time – which would be a blessing for the District.

All employees who interact with students, is eligible for the vaccine. They have partnered with the Town to include staff from the Recreation Department, as well as with DATTCO to include the bus drivers.

The plan is to give students a half day on the day of the clinic, so that all who are participating can be vaccinated. She says that her staff is very excited to get the vaccine and say they would stop by, even at 2:00 a.m., if that was the only time available. There are approximately 260 individuals who will be eligible for this clinic.

Smith ends by giving a “shout out” to Governor Ned Lamont thanking him for supporting the educators and bringing the vaccines to the State. Most of the school closures in Thompson were due to too many staff members out in quarantine.

Neconn Soccer Club

NECONN Soccer Club is looking for a parent to represent Thompson! That could be you!!

Dear Thompson Parents,

We are currently looking for one or two people to volunteer to be the Thompson town representative for Neconn. We had two people as representatives previously, one parent moved out of town and the other parent has children that have aged out of the program, creating the vacancy. The responsibilities of the town representative are as follows:

Attend monthly board meetings either in person or via zoom
Select coaches and assistants for each team
Organize seasonal teams
Assign and organize practice times for teams
Distribute equipment and uniforms for coaches
Communicate information to coaches from the Neconn Board
There is not a great deal of time involved to the position, especially if shared with two people. A few hours before the season starts is needed to perform the duties above. Monthly meetings are generally completed in under 90 minutes. The Neconn board is comprised of a group of people that are dedicated to the youth of northeast Connecticut and are a pleasure to work with. If you are interested in this position please feel free to contact me at [email protected] with any questions or concerns you may have.

Second time in 8 days that I was running in the park behind the old Knight's of Columbus and had to two come charging at me while I was running. Last week the dogs chased me down to the old River Mill complex. I contacted the First Selectman's office and Necogg animal control. Necogg told me if it happens again call them and they will send someone out. Today, the same thing. I call Necogg and they sent someone out. The guy was still there with his dogs and was told there is a leash law. He stated sometimes he lets his dogs off leash to run. He parks right in front of the sign that states pets must be leashed. Hopefully, with Necogg animal control coming out this morning it will resolve this issue. I really enjoy running there first thing in the morning while the sun is coming up. It is a great town resource. If you go down there and see a Honda Pilot with Mass, plates 8TK 477 dark in color. Be on the watch for two loose dogs. One, small pitbull light in color and a black dog about the same build as a German Shepherd. This morning's incident happened at 5:00am.
Does anyone know the depth of the ponds/lakes in Thompson? Are there any maps showing the depths?
Is the bonfire still going to happen if it snows?
Will this still go on tonight? Or will there be a snow date or something?
Thank You, for a awesome live Rock Concert on a beautiful summers night, Wayne and Sue and a few more you drove up across the State lines !
Hello my name is Khadijah Benoit and I’m the head coach for the Quinebaug Valley Pride cheerleading team!! I know school is almost out and I know the kids are saying YES!!! But the parents are saying NOOOOOO. I also now that we have a lot of eighth graders that are getting ready to move into high school. So I just wanted to give you a little bit of information about the cheer squad. The first day of practice will be August 29 at 3 o’clock at the St. Marie Greenhalgh Complex in Putnam, CT. The student MUST attend one of the three schools Ellis tech, Putnam High School or Tourtellotte Memorial high school. Students are bused from their school to Putnam high school . They walk down as a squad to the field. Practice will end at five and needs to be picked up promptly FROM THE FIELD. (The FIRST DAY ONLY) 3 to 3:30 Will be a parents meeting and I encourage at least one parent to attend. This meeting is just to go over a few things and to Answer any questions that anybody might have. One thing that I do ask please make sure all paperwork that needs to be handed in is handed in physicals up to date please. If you have any questions about paperwork please contact the school student is attending. I hope everybody has a safe fun summer and I’m looking forward to seeing new and returning faces for the upcoming season. See everybody then.
Does anyone know when the Coaches Pitch Baseball will be starting up??
It's that time again! Thompson Recreation is accepting councelor applications and registration for campers will be opening shortly!
Just a reminder that this Wednesday, August 16, there is NO FIELD TRIP, but Adventure Camp will still be at Thompson Middle School for our annual field day and camp cookout. The cookout is catered by G7 Caterers of Thompson, and campers will have a choice of a hot dog, hamburger or cheeseburger as well as chips and a drink. Please still pack a morning and afternoon snack, but there is no need to pack lunch. If you have any questions, please give our office a call at (860) 923-9440. Thank you.
