To the MSAD 72 School Community:

As of today, we will be moving to an indefinite period of distance learning. This decision is in response to the increasing positive tests for COVID-19 across the state and is a reasonable response given the Governor’s recent declaration of a “civil state of emergency.” It is incredibly important that all citizens of our state practice “social distancing” and minimize unnecessary contact with others.

I am extremely proud of the incredible work that went into preparations for distance learning, and based upon individual responses from families, things have gotten off to a promising start. Like any new endeavor, I am sure there will be obstacles to overcome, but I know I can count on our team of educators to address them and to learn and improve as we go. 

We will continue to offer breakfast and lunch to families through our school nutrition program, and if you are not currently on our list and wish to receive food, please visit our District website ( and use the link there. We will monitor the volume of requests, and at some point if we have to shift to curbside pickup at designated spots with limited door-to-door deliveries, we may have to do that as numbers increase. 

In conclusion, please take care of yourselves. The best way to guarantee your safety and the safety of your families is: wash your hands, wipe down surfaces, practice social distancing, try not to touch your face, cover your mouth with your arm if you cough/sneeze, and stay at home if you are sick. Finally, please contact the school if you or one of your children tests positive for COVID-19 so we can closely monitor the situation. Best wishes and continued safety to everyone.
