We have been notified by the lab of one positive pool at CHS. All other pools at all three schools are negative. We will complete secondary testing today in an attempt to identify and isolate the positive case. If your student is in the positive pool you will be notified of the secondary test result. Thank you for participating in pool testing. This kind of screening is helping to keep students in school and keep us open to in person learning!

We have been notified that there has been a rather large cyber attack on the company that manages our phone services at CMS and CHS. This attack is still impacting nation wide callers using Verizon Wireless accounts and may continue for some time. This attack is also impacting several other companies in addition to the one we use. If you are unable to reach one of our schools, please contact the Superintendent’s Office at 285-3334 and we will coordinate communication with the school.

As you may know, the federal government has made available, through the American Rescue Plan, funds for schools to address the academic impacts of lost instructional time through evidence-based interventions that respond to the academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs of all students and particularly underserved student groups and to implement prevention and mitigation strategies (aligned with CDC guidance to greatest extent practicable.) We are actively seeking community and family input regarding creating safe and healthy learning environments, addressing lost instructional time and other issues pertaining to the impact on Covid-19 on all students and their families. If you are interested, please reach out to Danette Kerrigan, Curriculum Coordinator at dkerrigan@rsu64schools.org or 207-285-3334 as soon as possible.

We have recovered water at CCES and will be having school on Monday. This is a great reminder to parents to have an emergency plan in place for your kids in the event we ever have to dismiss early. Early dismissals aren’t just for snow events!

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.

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!
