We are very concerned about the health and safety of our students and our communities. After participating in a discussion on a conference call with the Maine Commissioner of Education, and conversations with regional superintendents, the Hermon School District and RSU 87 will be closing schools for two weeks from Monday, March 16, through Friday, March 27. We will reassess and update as information comes in throughout the break. More information will be provided in the upcoming days, we just wanted to get the message out as soon as possible.

Update on COVID-19 The Commissioner of Education will be zooming with Superintendents across the State at 3:30 to discuss the challenges that COVID-19 has presented. I will be joining that call to learn more about what other districts are doing and what the DOE and CDC recommend.

Saturday March 14 COVID-19 Update You may be aware that a district on the coast of Maine has closed it's schools for 2 weeks starting Monday. There are other schools across the state (particularly in southern Maine) who are also closing for short times. Some are taking Monday to plan, others are out for a week, and a couple are taking 2-3 days. Many are waiting for guidance from the DOE and CDC. In our region, we are going to try to stay coordinated. Area Superintendents are in constant communication with each other and plan to meet on Sunday to review and plan. We have followed the CDC and DOE recommendations to date, and they have not advised us to close. In Hermon, we are going to stay the course and continue to follow the recommendations of the CDC and DOE. We have made the necessary adjustments to date, and nothing has changed since 4 pm Friday afternoon. So as of right now, we are on for Monday as usual. If things change, I will send you another message and likely make an All Call on Sunday to update everyone.
