THERE WILL BE NO SCHOOL IN MSAD72 FRIDAY - JANUARY 21, 2022

January 20, 2022

Dear MSAD 72 Families:

THIS MESSAGE CORRECTS AN ERROR WITH THE DATE AND CLARIFIES THAT STUDENTS 9-12 WILL BE NOTIFIED ABOUT SCHOOL TOMORROW BY THE SCHOOL.

I regret to inform everyone that Friday, January 21, 2022, will NOT be a school day for all students in grades PK-8. We have had to make this very difficult decision due to staffing shortages of both classroom teachers and our transportation staff.

While we are proud of our efforts to remain open despite ongoing staffing shortages, we have reached a point where it is necessary to close down for the day tomorrow. I am sending out this message as quickly as I am able as I know that this causes families to have to quickly change plans and make other arrangements for children. For that I am sorry. Thank you for your understanding.


Sincerely,


Jay Robinson

Superintendent of Schools

A Heartfelt Thank You From

The MSAD 72 Board of Directors To

All MSAD 72 Employees

The District Administration provides us with regular updates on the status of all elements of the Educational process including transportation, personnel, facilities, finance, policy, and curriculum. All of these elements have one central focus: the health and safety and quality of Education for all of our students.

In the updates provided to us, we are constantly impressed by the focus and dedication of all employees, and we are grateful that our District has such a professional team.

Over the last two years, we have experienced a significant change to our orderly daily lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have all been challenged to keep focus on what is important in our lives and to find new ways to achieve our goals.

The creative methods developed by all of you to keep the focus on the MSAD72 goals of educating our students while maintaining health and safety is so impressive it requires us to acknowledge it in writing for all to see.

In addition to the creative lesson planning required over the last two years, a new challenging element has developed this year, which is the lack of personnel. This lack of personnel is felt not only in our District, but in most other school districts and most other employment categories nationwide.

This personnel shortage, added to the already difficult educational challenges facing our District, has made a hard job even harder. Whether it is teachers filling in staffing gaps, custodians covering additional shifts, transportation drivers

combining routes, or any number of other examples, your incredible hard work, creativity and dedication to our students is an example to all of us how a dedicated and focused team can succeed, even in the face of such difficult challenges.

Your success is clear to see, since, even though we have had COVID-19 challenges over the last two years, ours have been much fewer than many of our neighbors.

So, in conclusion, your Board of Directors would like to say THANK YOU for all you do and we will continue to support you all in every way we can. We are proud to be a member of the MSAD 72 team.
