January MOS Parent Meeting for Returning Students

posted Jan 6, 2021, 3:02 PM by Eric Wood   [ updated Jan 6, 2021, 3:03 PM ]



Here is a recording of the Zoom Meeting held at 05:00 p.m. on January 5th, 2021 for Parents or Guardians of returning students.

There will be no school on Wednesday, Dec. 23 for students.

There will be no school on Wednesday, Dec. 23 for students.

Teachers and staff at MOS will be working on plans for bringing more that 60 additional students back to our in-person school programming from remote learning.

This shift is a huge undertaking. It will create some changes to both in-person and remote student schedules, classrooms, and in some cases the assigned teacher. Unfortunately we are not able to take parent requests, however, before the break, teachers will be communicating these changes to families.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we work through this challenging school year.

Dear Staff, Students and Families,


This letter is to inform you that a student associated with MSAD #72 at The Molly Ockett School has tested positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Calls are being made to families of students who are close contacts, and those students will be quarantining for a period of 14 days from the last day of exposure to the person who tested positive. A “close contact” is anyone who has been within six feet of an infected person, with or without a mask, for at least fifteen minutes accumulated time over a 24 hour period during the forty-eight hours prior to when the individual who tested positive developed symptoms. We aim to accomplish the complex task of identifying and notifying any close contacts within a 24-hour period. The steps included in the CDC Standard Operating Procedures for a positive case will be executed in as timely a manner possible by the administrative team.


Remaining vigilant about following safety recommendations continues to be a key part of preventing the spread of the virus, and these recommendations include wearing a face covering, staying six feet apart, avoiding large gatherings, and washing our hands. We all play an important role in keeping Maine schools and businesses open and keeping Maine people healthy.


Questions for the school can be directed at Nancy Boucher by calling 935-2600 Ext. 1248. For general COVID-19 questions, dial 211 (or 1-866-811-5695). You can also text your ZIP code to 898-211 or email info@211maine.org www.maine.gov/dhhs/coronavirus or www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.

Dear Staff, Students and Families, 


This letter is to inform you that an individual associated with MSAD #72 at New Suncook Elementary School has tested positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). This letter serves as a general notification to our school community. Given that this case involved a staff member, given that the exposure happened while school was not in session, and given that this individual has not been in school since school resumed on Monday, none of our students would be deemed as “close contacts” with this individual. However, in the interests of being transparent, we felt it would be best to share news of this positive case.


Questions for the school can be directed at Nancy Boucher by calling 935-2600 Ext. 1248. For general COVID-19 questions, dial 211 (or 1-866-811-5695). You can also text your ZIP code to 898-211 or email info@211maine.org. www.maine.gov/dhhs/coronavirus or www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.

Better Internet Service for Fryeburg! Assistance Needed

posted Nov 3, 2020, 11:01 AM by Jim LaPlante   [ updated Nov 3, 2020, 11:10 AM ]


Hello-

Please see the attached survey with a speed testing link and background information; this survey is very important to helping the Town and the Broadband Committee gain an understanding of gaps in service areas so we can look at specific means to improve reliable internet access.  Your assistance in both completing this survey/speed test and forwarding it to people in your neighborhood/organization would be greatly appreciated!  This survey is also being mailed to Fryeburg postal addresses but I know that not every business or homeowner has a Fryeburg address so this extra effort is needed to get this survey out to everyone!

Dear Staff, Students and Families,


This letter is to inform you that an individual associated with MSAD #72 tested positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).  There is a possibility that other staff or students came in contact with this individual and therefore may be exposed to the virus.  We are informing you out of an abundance of caution.  Please monitor yourself/your student for signs and symptoms.  Call a health care provider if symptoms start.  It is important that you call a healthcare facility before you show up in person.  Stay home if you are sick.


Covid-19 is a respiratory illness that ranges from mild to severe.  It can be more severe in adults 60 years and older and in those with underlying conditions.  The virus mainly spreads when an infected person coughs or sneezes and an uninfected person breathes in the virus.  Signs and symptoms include:

 

Fever or chills                                                            New loss of taste or smell

Cough                                                                         Sore throat

Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing         Congestion or runny nose

Fatigue                                                                        Nausea or vomiting

Muscle or body aches                                              Diarrhea

Headache


Please keep in mind that many things can cause respiratory illness, so students and staff should be up-to-date on influenza and routine vaccinations.


Maine CDC or a school representative will contact you directly if you are identified as a close contact of someone who tested positive.  Close contacts will be asked to quarantine for 14 days from last exposure to the positive individual.  A negative test result does not get an individual out of quarantine.


Maine CDC recommends prevention measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  These measures include proper handwashing with soap and warm water, which is especially important after using the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.  When soap and water is not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.  Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands and avoid close contact with people who are sick.  Cover your cough or sneeze into a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.  Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.


Questions for the school can be directed at Nancy Boucher by calling 935-2600 Ext. 1248.  For general COVID-19 questions, dial 211 (or 1-866-811-5695).  You can also text your ZIP code to 898-211 or email info@211maine.org
