A reminder that we have a remote learning page to help troubleshoot internet issues and identify who you should contact for which types of problems. https://remote.rsu67.org/home
November 19, 2020 Dear Staff, Parents, and Community Members: As Thanksgiving approaches, we all look forward to celebrating and connecting with family, loved ones and friends. As people have holiday gatherings, travel, shop, or attend other events, close contacts increase, creating a potential uptick in positive cases. Unfortunately, we continue to face rising cases of the COVID-19 Coronavirus across the nation, the state and our county. At their meeting last evening, the R.S.U. No. 67 Board of Directors discussed at length how to proceed with instruction after Thanksgiving, understanding that in-person instruction is best and remote learning can be challenging for families. In order to reduce the risk of potential exposure and protect the health and safety of staff and students, all R.S.U. No. 67 schools will provide remote instruction for one week (November 30-December 4) following the Thanksgiving break. If health markers allow, we will return to in-person instruction with a remote option on Monday, December 7. Details about meal distribution will be posted on the R.S.U. No. 67 website. Please contact your child’s teacher or school with specific questions regarding remote learning. I wish our entire community a safe Thanksgiving and I look forward to having our students back to in-person learning as soon as possible. Sincerely, Jean Skorapa, Superintendent of Schools
November 13, 2020 Dear Staff, Parents, and Community Members: I am writing to you in response to the recent news regarding the rise in confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our state and county. At this time, there continue to be no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our schools. However, out of an abundance of caution, beginning Monday, November 16, 2020, all R.S.U. No. 67 schools will operate in a hybrid model in which students attend school two days and have remote education three days. We will continue in this model up to the Thanksgiving break. R.S.U. No. 67 remains committed to providing a safe environment for our students to learn and our staff to work. I want to reassure you that the entire district will continue to follow all health protocols from the Maine Center for Disease Control and the Department or Education. We will continue to monitor the situation closely, keep parents/guardians informed, and make any adjustments to our learning environment and school plans as necessary. I ask for continued cooperation from our families and community to adhere to our health protocols. Face masks are required on R.S.U. No. 67 properties per the Governor’s Executive order. Families are reminded to continue to complete the self- screening assessment daily for their child to check for symptoms of COVID-19 prior to coming to school each day. Children who have any symptoms and/or are feeling unwell need to stay home. I would like to thank our families and students in advance for your support and continued engagement in learning during this time. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s school. I appreciate your support and look forward to our continued work together as we navigate through this challenging time. Sincerely,. Jean Skorapa, Superintendent of Schools

In honor of Veteran's Day, there is no school this Wednesday, November 11, 2020. The History of Veterans' Day Formerly Armistice Day, Veterans Day is a holiday observed annually in the United States in honor of all those, living and dead, who served with the U.S. armed forces in wartime. Some states observe the holiday on November 11 and others on the fourth Monday of October. Armistice Day, the forerunner of Veterans Day, was proclaimed in 1919 to commemorate the termination (at 11 am on Nov. 11, 1918) of World War I. On the first anniversary of the truce, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation eulogizing fallen Allied soldiers and referring to November 11 as Armistice Day. It became a holiday in the U.S., France, Great Britain and Canada. The holiday acquired its present name and broadened significance in the U.S. in 1954. In Canada it is known as Remembrance Day, and in Great Britain, as Remembrance Sunday.

Dear Families, It is that time of year when parent-teacher conferences are scheduled to take place. As you all know, we have rules that prohibit us from meeting in-person so all conferences must take place remotely. Parent-Teacher conferences are on Tuesday, November 10th and Thursday, November 12th. Grades 4-6 will hold conferences from 2:30pm to 5:30pm on both days. Grades 7-8 will hold conferences on Tuesday, November 10th from 4-7 and Thursday, November 12th from 3:30pm to 6:30pm. Parent-Teacher Conferences are by appointment only. Each grade level will be sending out information on how to set up your appointment and any other info that you will need in order to access the conference. The conferences are scheduled to be 10-15 minutes long. We are requesting that you Zoom in as your primary point of contact. This allows us to use our limited amount of outward lines for the families that do not have internet access. Thank you all in advance for working with us to get conferences scheduled for your child. Christopher Cowing, Principal

We need your help getting paperwork properly signed. We've returned forms to many of our students. One form is the green colored computer Acceptable use Policy or AUP. That paper needs to be signed in order for your child to use and take home their laptop. The other paper is the yellow Student Profile. This page requires a signature on both sides and some parents missed the second signature. Thank you for your help!

We know that students and parents are wondering if there will be fall sports options at MJHS. We hope that there will be agreed upon guidance from State organizations this week. The next step after that is for the RSU No. 67 Board of Directors to discuss and decide how to proceed at their meeting on Wednesday, September 16th.
Other information that will be in the letter when you receive it is who the staff is for each grade, a bell schedule (which you really only need if your child is remote now or at some point because he/she will be staying in one room and the staff will be moving from room to room), and an exploratory calendar since there are now a different number of groups in each grade than days in the week. It's okay if your child doesn't have their sneakers for PE or a band instrument for the first day of school. Here is some of that information. 4th graders have Mrs. Gray or Mrs. Kotara for ELA and social studies classes and Mrs. Arnold or Ms. Marquis for math and science. They will all have Mrs. Pietras for ELA academic focus and Mrs. Wooley for math academic focus. These adults will be supervising their recess. They will also have Ms. Antes for art, Mr. Cox for PE, Ms. Kinkade for music, Mrs. Lujan for world language/spanish, and Mrs. Tilton for health. There is a calendar for these exploratory classes that shows which days each group has each class over the month of September. 5th graders will have Mrs. Albert or Mrs. Zaroff for math and science and they will all have Mr. Baker for ELA, Mrs. Whittier for social studies, Mrs. Paul for study hall and recess, Mrs. Sirois for ELA academic focus, and Mrs. Slike for math academic focus. These adults will supervise recess and study hall. They will also have Ms. Antes for art, Mr. Cox for PE, Ms. Kinkade for music, Mrs. Lujan for world language/spanish, and Mrs. Tilton for health. There is a calendar for these exploratory classes that shows which days each group has each class over the month of September. 6th graders will all have Mrs. Burns for social studies, Mrs. Carmichael for ELA, Ms. Lowell for math, and Mr. MacEachern for science, Ms. Arnold for math academic focus, and Mrs. Dickinson for ELA academic focus. These adults will supervise their study hall and recess. They will also have Ms. Antes for art, Mr. Cox for PE, Ms. Kinkade for band lessons if they play an instrument, Mrs. Lujan for world language/spanish, and Mrs. Tilton for health. There is a calendar for these exploratory classes that shows which days each group has each class over the month of September. 7th graders will have Mr. Fitch for social studies, Ms. Housum for ELA, Mrs. Jacques for math, and Mr. McPhetres for science. These adults will supervise their study hall. They will also have Ms. Antes for art, Mr. Cox for PE, Ms. Kinkade for band or chorus, Mrs. Lujan for world language/spanish, and Mrs. Tilton for health. There is a calendar for these exploratory classes that shows which days each group has each class over the month of September. 8th graders will have Mr. Brown for social studies, Mrs. Cole for math, Mr. Russell as a long-term sub for Ms. Ratledge in ELA, and Mr. White for science. These adults will supervise their study hall. They will also have Ms. Antes for art, Mr. Cox for PE, Ms. Kinkade for band and chorus, Mrs. Lujan for world language/spanish, and Mrs. Tilton for health. There is a calendar for these exploratory classes that shows which days each group has each class over the month of September.
I'm hearing that some families still have not received their classroom information letters after checking the mail today. We absolutely want you to have that information before the first day. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. To speed things up, please use the subject "classroom letter", include your name and your student's name and grade, and I will respond as promptly as I can with their classroom and group number as well as the entrance doors they should use. Thank you!
We can't wait to see our students on Tuesday! Our plan to open with an in-person model for those who didn't choose remote is still in place.
RSU 67 Fall Sports Update The safety of all individuals involved in interscholastic athletics (student-athletes, coaches, athletic training staff, game day personnel, spectators) is the number one priority as RSU 67 considers the resumption of education-based interscholastic activities. The district’s administration team will continue to support all initiatives identified for mitigating the risks associated with COVID-19 and make decisions accordingly. The RSU 67 administrative team will utilize guidance from the following groups regarding how to most safely conduct education-based sport programs: 1. Office of the Governor of Maine 2. Maine Department of Education 3. Maine Center for Disease Control 4. Maine Principals’ Association 5. Penobscot Valley Conference principals 6. Penobscot Valley Conference superintendents of schools 7. Local school administrations 8. Best practices as identified in other states and athletic associations 9. National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Sports Medicine Advisory Committee As many of you know the MPA has set September 8, 2020 as the date that school districts can officially begin fall athletics. As much as I would like to say that we have received the Ok to proceed, I cannot . We currently await the approval of the new guidelines that the MPA set last week. The DOE and CDC are currently reviewing those guidelines. I have been told that a decision is likely to be made before the week is over. Once they have been reviewed and approved, it will be up to individual districts to decide whether or not they will proceed with athletics. RSU 67 will base its decision on what is best for our athletes and the entire community. I do realize that this is a time sensitive issue, but ask that you remain patient as we sort through what has become a very difficult decision. We realize that the young people need athletics as an outlet and will continue to advocate for a return to play. Thank you all for supporting the young people of our community as we traverse these difficult times. I hope to have some positive news for you soon. Sincerely, Bill McCarthy Athletic Administrator RSU 67
I just wanted to update you all on fall athletics at MJHS, as many of you know the start date for fall sports has been moved back to September 8th.

In the meantime it is important to log onto the MJHS athletic page and register your son or daughter for fall sports. We are only accepting online registrations at this time. The process is easy and fast. If you need assistance or internet access you can call Dolly Phillips at 794-3309 or send her an e-mail at email@example.com and she will help you out. Stay safe and enjoy the rest of the summer!

I will keep you posted on any changes to this decision. Thanks for your patience.
This week (May 4 - 8) we are going to begin the process of helping 8th graders choose their classes for their Freshman year.

It is very important that your student attend one of these meetings. She will be sending an email invitation to the meeting as well as a document called “Freshman Program of Studies” to your student’s Gmail account. You are welcome to sit in on the meeting. Once we get the initial work done, you will be contacted by an MA guidance counselor to finalize choices.
Just a reminder that now we we are back from April Vacation and we are requiring a once a week check in with your child’s teacher. Teachers have been spending the past few weeks calling homes and sending communication through your child’s school email. We also understand that connectivity may be a problem for some of you so we are offering the methods below for avenues of acceptable communication. Beginning April 27, 2020 and ending June 9, 2020 -Your child must check in once a week by using one of the following methods: 1. Attends a zoom meeting 2. Participates in google classroom OR responds to emails directly and emails questions as needed 3. Contacts the teacher by phone We are still waiting to hear from several students. There will be important information coming to eighth graders in regards to signing up for classes at MA. Please make sure you have your child contact their teacher by one of the following methods above so they can be ready when the time comes. Please call me at 794-8935 or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
