RSU5 Cleaning Product

In our diligence to try and keep everyone safe and healthy, we have been using a cleaning product, Vital Oxide, that if not given adequate time to dry causes staining on clothes. We are sorry if your child has experienced this. We are cleaning more frequently than we did in pre-Covid times and while this is ensuring a safer health environment, it is also causing an unintentional consequence of the stain on the clothes. 

We have ordered a new product that should arrive this week. In the interim, we will try and ensure that spaces are adequately dried before students use their workspace.

Because of everyone's cooperation, we have had a very successful first two weeks of school.  

Becky J. Foley, Superintendent
