2023-24 Calendar Revisions
Good Afternoon, I hope you and your family are doing well. The latest storm resulted in the seventh cancellation this school year, which would make the last student day Monday, June 26 and workshop day Tuesday, June 27, 2023. In an effort to end the school year closer to the scheduled closing date, our Board approved the following revisions to the 2022-23 district calendar: 10 one-hour extensions to the instructional day for the weeks of May 22-26 and June 5-9 to equal two instructional days and postpone the scheduled closing date five days, making the last student day June 22 and the last workshop day June 23. Please see the revised calendar included with this message I appreciate your understanding and realize these changes may present challenges for some families and staff. Please contact your child’s school if you have questions or we can help. Thank you, Steve Nolan

We have revised our COVID-19 Guidance to align with the U.S. CDC Operational Guidance for K-12 Schools and Early Care and Education Programs to Support Safe In-Person Learning updated on August 11, 2022. Please review the RSU 40 COVID-19 Guidance prior to the start of school and contact us if you have questions. Masks will remain optional in RSU 40 schools until or unless the State of Maine and/or the Maine Department of Education declares a health emergency. However, masks are required indoors for days 6 through 10 for individuals testing positive for COVID-19 upon returning from isolation or until individuals test negative on two antigen tests taken 48 hours apart. COVID-19 Community Levels are currently low for Lincoln and Knox counties. Please see the information below for prevention steps you can take based on the COVID-19 Community Level.

Please monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and stay home if you are sick . Thank you for helping to keep our students and staff healthy and safe!
