M.S.A.D. #42, Mars Hill & Blaine school district, and RSU 39, Caribou & Stockholm school district, will continue remote learning for the rest of the school year.

In a letter to parents, Elaine Boulier, C.A.S. Superintendent said “For the safety of all, it is imperative that we continue our remote learning plan for the remainder of the school year unless further guidance from the Commissioner, Governor, or the CDC tells us otherwise.”

Read the Facebook post from M.S.A.D. #42, April 9:

Superintendent of RSU 39, Timothy Doak said “I am recommending, with the support of the Governor, that you begin to plan to replace classroom/group instruction with remote/distance learning for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.”

The letter from RSU 39 was posted to Facebook April 15:

Governor Mills and Pender Makin, commissioner of the Maine Department of Education, made the recommendation April 7 to replace classroom/group instruction with remote/distance learning for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

Pender Makin said:

As you may know, US CDC guidance recommends an 8 to 20 week timeframe for avoiding large group/in-person instruction once there is evidence of community transmission of COVID-19.  Therefore, I am recommending, with the support of the Governor, that you begin to plan to replace classroom/group instruction with remote/distance learning for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.
