Dear R.S.U. No. 67 Community,

The holiday season is coming to a close, and a new year is upon us.  There is no doubt that 2021 has been a challenging year for our students, staff, and families due to the ever-changing landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic.  However, despite the challenges of the pandemic, you have all repeatedly risen to meet each challenge with grace and perseverance. Now, as we move into 2022, I believe that there is much to be hopeful for in the coming weeks and months. 

I am hopeful for a better 2022 with the continued goal of keeping our schools open, safe and healthy and ensuring that every student receives the very best education possible.  I believe these goals will be attainable through the use of the much anticipated revised Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) from the Maine Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and updated testing protocols.  Although changes in the SOP have not yet been finalized, I am hopeful that there will be improved rules regarding school quarantine which will allow us to keep students in school for in-person instruction.

As we all look forward to a brighter 2022, I want to take this opportunity to thank our students, staff, and families for your hard work, dedication, and support. Although there will be challenges ahead, I am sure that we will persevere if we continue to work together for our students, district, and community.  

 I wish you all a healthy and safe New Year, and I look forward to seeing you next week.

Jean Skorapa, Superintendent
