Dear Staff and Families,
We have had six new positive cases since my last letter: four at DCS, one at MSS, and one at FHS. In RSU5, we are now at 85 confirmed positive cases. We’ve had eighteen cases in the past fourteen days. Our vaccination rate with our staff remains at 95.74%.
Pooled testing continues to go well in all of our schools. I encourage everyone to consider enrolling in pooled testing. Due to the Thanksgiving break, pooled testing is not available in RSU 5 or throughout the state. If you are interested in having your child vaccinated, you can check with your local pharmacy or visit www.vaccines.gov to find a location near you that offers the vaccine needed.
Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude. I am filled with gratitude for your continued support during these challenging times. May you and your family have a joyous Thanksgiving!
