Week of November 22-26

Monday & Tuesday are both Early Release Days due to Parent Teacher Conferences.  Grades 6-12 will release at 11:30AM; Grades K-5 will release at 12:30PM.

Wednesday - Friday: NO SCHOOL for students and staff in celebration of Thanksgiving.

During the week of Thanksgiving, November 22-26, because the schedule cycle for test and follow up will be interrupted, Pooled Testing will not be conducted or collected in any Maine schools. This means that the week following the break there will not be an exception to quarantine for identified close contacts participating in pooled testing. The exception to quarantine will resume once a full cycle of testing has occurred.
