Pool-Testing will begin Sept. 23 & 24 in RSU 10 Schools There seems to be some confusion over the use of Pool-Testing. 1) Anyone and Everyone can and should sign up – WHY? 2) It allows the person NOT to quarantine – even in a positive “Pool” group - if individually testing negative – Regardless… a. Regardless if vaccinated b. Regardless if a close contact in the classroom, playground, lunchroom, bus, sports team, etc. c. Regardless if you were in a close group with a positive case 3) It is a simple cotton swab (self-administered) in the nose – once per week. 4) If group comes back positive – individual confidential test with school nurse. PLEASE – return the consent forms https://5il.co/xr29 and https://5il.co/xr28 to participate. Contact your school nurse or check out this https://www.maine.gov/doe/sites/maine.gov.doe/files/inline-files/School%20Testing%20FAQ%208.23.21%20FINAL.pdf with questions. **This is funded through the State of Maine – NOT local tax dollars**

Good morning. Unfortunately a shortage of available bus drivers will cause delays in the morning bus schedule in the Nezinscot Region. The impacted bus runs include the Dinosaur, Deer, Duck, and Cow buses. Many students picked up will be later than usual, possibly much later.
Students can apply for financial aid for the 2022-23 academic year beginning on October 1, 2021. To learn more about Virtual Financial Aid Sessions offered by Finance Authority of Maine (FAME), follow this link https://tinyurl.com/2ccsze67.
Notice for Tuesday, September 14th: Due to a bus driver shortage in the Nezinscot Region, RSU 10 will combine the Duck and Dino afternoon bus runs on the afternoon of Tuesday, September 14. You may see a delay in your students' return home that day.
Please join us to reduce quarantining and sign up for Pool Testing today. As soon as we have at least five(5) people/students consenting for pool testing participation in any classroom or grouping we will be able to begin Pool Testing for that group and those participating would ONLY be required to quarantine IF they test positive themselves. This includes those ALREADY vaccinated. Please consult your School Nurse with additional questions. Below are the two (2) consent forms that must be completed for participating in Pool Testing https://5il.co/xr29 https://5il.co/xr28 You can also get a hard copy of these forms in any school office.
