CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Some teachers in New Hampshire have skipped back to school nights because they're still without a new contract.

The Concord Monitor reported Thursday several parents in the Concord School District received emails that they would not be meeting their children's teachers this week.

A letter sent to parents at Rundlett Middle School says the boycott is one way teachers "can stand united" in their wish to reach a settlement.

The district employee's contracts expired June 30. School Board Vice President Jennifer Patterson says they met with union representatives about 20 times over the past year, but they failed to reach an agreement.

Patterson declined to say what is holding up a resolution.

The board is meeting again Monday to discuss the contract.
