Due to the flu pandemic, New Hampton closed twice: October 9-21, 1918, and December 14, 1918-January 6, 1919. “Our school, like many others, has suffered much from the influenza epidemic. Still, we consider ourselves very fortunate that all of our members were able to return.” – Hamptonia Vol 39, Issue 2: March 1919
