Dear Staff and Families,
We have had fourteen new positive cases since my last letter: four at MLS, two at DCS, four at MSS, one at PES, one at FMS, and two at FHS. In RSU5, we are now at 79 confirmed positive cases. We’ve had twenty-six 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 this option. Due to the Thanksgiving break, pooled testing is not available throughout the state.
We partnered with Freeport Community Center in vaccinating 75 of our younger students this week. Community clinics continue to be held at Coffin Elementary School in Brunswick. These are open to any child ages 5-11. To sign your child up for the Mid Coast Hospital clinic at Coffin School, please visit www.midcoasthealth.com/vaccine to make an appointment.
Thank you for your continued support during these challenging times!
