We are experiencing a water issue at CCES. Students and staff have access to bottled water for drinking and we are managing the toilet facilities flushing when we have recovered enough water to do so. We have plenty of hand sanitizer available. We plan to dismiss at our regular time and will work to have the issue resolved in time for school to resume on Monday.
We have received notification of one additional positive pool at CCES from our pool testing on Tuesday. However, secondary tests did not reveal a positive individual. We will continue to test this pool until we find the positive or our testing schedule catches up to next Tuesday. All parents of the students in this pool have been notified.
All of the pool testing results are back from Central High School. With 129 students and staff being tested, only one positive pool was identified. This positive case was already reported to the public earlier today.
All of the pool testing results are back for Central Middle School. With 120 students and staff participating there are NO positive pools identified.
Good Morning! We are all anxious to receive the results of the pool testing round completed yesterday. We have not yet received our results but will communicate with you once we do. With more schools participating and labs overrun with testing we may not get our results until tomorrow. Thank you for your patience.
Central Community Elementary School's Title I Parent Meeting will be held on September 21, 2021 at 6:30 PM via Zoom. We will discuss Title I Schoolwide designation and what it means for our students, as well as ways parents can be involved in the Title I process. More information, and a zoom link, will be coming home with your student this week.
Happy Friday! It has been a very busy week but we are so grateful for all of the support and cooperation we have experienced this week in regard to pool testing. It is not a perfect program but it is working to identify positive cases and keep us open to in person learning. Please remember to monitor all students for symptoms and keep students home if they are present, even if they are participating in pool testing. If symptoms are present, students should be seen by their medical provider. We are not a walk in testing site. Thank you!
The lab has made us aware of another positive test pool at CCES. All secondary tests have been administered today and the positive case of COVID-19 has been identified.. All close contacts of the positive case have been notified of their need to quarantine. An email will follow shortly with additional information about an additional positive case at CCES we were notified of today that was not identified through pool testing. In total CCES has 6 new cases of COVID-19 this week.
Contact tracing for our positive cases that emerged today due to Pooled Testing has been completed. Parents and caregivers will receive a follow up email with additional information shortly. Thank you for all of your patience and understanding today. Together, we will keep our schools open for in person learning and keep our students and staff healthy!
All of our secondary testing is now complete and we have identified 6 positive cases of COVID-19. There are 4 positive cases at CCES, one positive case at CMS and one positive case at CHS. We are working on contact tracing now and hope to have it complete by the end of the day. Thank you for your patience!
Good Morning. Yesterday, RSU 64 started its Pooled Testing Program. This morning we were notified of 5 positive pools. There are 3 positive pools at CCES and one each at CMS and CHS. Nursing staff are now working to test the staff and students in each of the positive pools. Once the positive case is identified administrators will be completing contact tracing. We will be in touch with all parents of the positive pools as soon as we can. Please be patient as this process will take time to complete given the volume of secondary tests we need to complete. Thank you for your understanding.
The Penobscot River Educational Partnership is offering several sessions for educators and parents in the coming weeks. Please take a look!
Free and voluntary Pooled Testing begins on September 7! Please submit your student's consent form as soon as possible so we can secure the testing materials. Participation in Pooled Testing can keep your student out of quarantine if there is a school exposure!
