Beginning the next calendar school year (9/1/2021) religious and philosophical objections to vaccines will no longer be viable exemptions in the state of Maine for entry into public schools. The new law passed in 2019 was delayed one year, but will take effect this year. I wanted to reach out to each of you early so you could plan ahead for the next school year. The catch-up immunization schedule for required immunizations indicates it can take up to 8 months for full compliance with school entry requirements, so it would be best to take care of anything now as waiting until the summer may not give you enough time. The law is LD 798 Chapter 154 if you wish to look it up. I can be reached via phone or email if you have any questions or concerns. ~Roberta Sherwood, R.N.,BSN,M.Ed
EAT THE RAINBOW!!
Eat the Rainbow is back and here is how it will work! Beginning on 2/8 every day of the week will represent a color…
Monday (February 8th)- Green Day
Tuesday (February 9th)- Orange/Yellow Day
Wednesday (February 10th)- Blue/Purple Day
Thursday (February 11th)- Red Day
Friday (February 12th)- Rainbow Day
On these days, we hope students will wear clothing that coordinates with the specific color of the day! These days will also include a fruit/vegetable for the color on the school lunch menu for this week! There will be daily announcements talking about the importance of the different colors and some other fun events happening through classes as well. I am looking forward to the week and hope you are too! Sincerely, Mr. Hutchings
Did you miss The Masked Reader this week? Don't worry, you still have time! Check out the link below to watch all four videos with your Wildcat(s), and then see if they can guess which staff members are underneath the masks! Guesses can be submitted via the student dropbox at school, with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or a message to our PTA Facebook account. We will be announcing who the masked readers are on Monday, February 8th! Have fun trying to figure it out!
