SOUTH BERWICK, Maine – With the start of school on Tuesday, officials from School Administrative District 35 are preparing to welcome an influx of new students from neighboring Rollinsford, N.H., at Marshwood High School and Marshwood Middle School.

In many ways, this admissions initiative represents a new chapter in School Administrative District 35’s history, while in other respects it simply deepens an existing connection between these Maine and New Hampshire border communities.

“This idea came about, in part, because Rollinsford does a lot with South Berwick – these towns have many shared traditions,” said Jeni Mosca, superintendent of N.H. School Administrative Unit 56, which includes Somersworth and Rollinsford.

She points to a Little League organization that features Rollinsford and South Berwick youngsters plus events like a Christmas parade which features civic organizations from both towns.
