COVID and OUT OF STATE TRAVEL - We are rapidly approaching the winter break. You are reminded that the State of Maine's Center for Disease Control has guidelines for out of state travelers. The rule is still in effect that if you or any members of your household are exposed to COVID 19, please do not send your child to school until you discuss the particulars of the situation with your school nurse. The nurse will determine when your child may safely return to school. If over the break you travel out of state, other than to Vermont or New Hampshire, your child must quarantine until the school receives a negative COVID-19 PCR test result. If you are unable to schedule a PCR test or choose not to have your student tested, they must quarantine for a total of 10 days from the day you return to Maine. This pandemic is not yet over and we all have a responsibility to keep each other safe. If you have any questions, please contact your school principal.
SNOW DAYS - All schools in the AOS will be "celebrating" future snow days the traditional way. If school is out because of a snowstorm or other bad weather event, we will not be offering remote learning. The expectation is that teachers and students will be spending the day shoveling and then going sledding. If we forced to close schools for an extended period of time, we will revisit this plan and might be required to shift to remote learning.
