Pool Testing has started in RSU 10! For more information, please see https://5il.co/zilx Thank you!
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**
This notification is to let parents and families know that based on the specifics of a positive COVID case, you may or may not receive a personal phone call or message regarding your child. We will be using our automated system to notify parents. This will help notify the necessary individuals in a timely and efficient manner. You will continue to receive written documentation from the school.

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.
We have 5 openings for elementary students (K-6) in the Western Maine Remote Academy. WMRA starts on 9/13/21. For more information, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is an application process. Thank you, Leanne Condon

Masks will be available as you get on RSU 10 transportation. Please comply with this "CDC Order". You may also choose to use your own transportation. Hope everyone is enjoying summertime!! Deb
