To M.S.A.D. #58 Students, Parents/Guardians, Staff and Community Members,

Per Maine Commissioner of Education Pender Makin’s recommendation, with Governor Mills’ approval of that recommendation, M.S.A.D. #58 schools will be preparing for remote learning for the remainder of the school year. If the Commissioner and/or Governor were to declare it safe to return to on-site learning before our last day of school, we would consider returning to on-site education at that time to allow students and staff to have closure for this academic year.

It continues to be our goal to be a source of support during this stressful period. During the time students will be asked to remain out of school buildings, M.S.A.D. #58 staff will continue to provide remote learning activities for students. We understand that each household’s circumstances are different. When it comes to remote learning, all that we ask is that you do the best that you can. The administrators continue to work on developing guidance as well as deferring to teacher expertise when it comes to expectations of students regarding quantity and assessment of student work. The goal is to create the best and most effective form of remote learning possible.

We will continue feeding students with direct delivery and school site pick-up on Mondays through Fridays. Remote learning and food delivery will be paused for the week of April Vacation (April 20 – April 24). We have been made aware there are several community groups looking to provide any needed assistance during this window of time.

If you or your family find yourself in need, please do not hesitate to contact M.S.A.D. #58 for additional support. We care and are here for you.

Best regards,

Todd Sanders
