Dear Staff and Families,
I am happy to report that Covid cases are finally on the decline. We remain at 30 total positive cases in RSU 5 since September. In the past 14 days, we have not had any positive student cases. Thank you for doing your part in keeping our staff and students safe!
After much consideration I am writing to inform you that as of Monday, March 1 we are no longer utilizing the Frontline screening tool. We believe that staff and families have established the habit of checking for symptoms and staying home when they are not feeling well. Instead of having to login everyday, an email will be sent to staff and families, reminding them to stay home if students or staff have Covid symptoms.
We believe this switch will allow our nurses and office staff to use their time more effectively, especially as we continue to bring more students back to school five days a week. I can’t thank you enough for your continued support during this time!
Becky Foley, Superintendent
