Please be watching for our arrival to help us with our delivery. If possible, if people could meet us at the end of their driveways or near their children's bus stop, that would be extremely helpful in this process. We will be delivering food to every house tomorrow, but moving forward we will need for you to let us know if you wish for your child to receive free breakfast and lunch. Just a reminder, remote learning for students will continue while the school is closed due to the Coronavirus. This is not a school vacation for students. Students will be required to complete assigned work. Teachers and staff will be available to email, videoconference, or talk on the phone with students during normal working hours Monday through Friday if there are any questions or concerns about their work. If you are unable to reach your child's teacher, please contact the school. We understand this is a difficult time for many people and is not the ideal way we would like to deliver your child's education. All Information will be posted on our website and on our school app.Please contact us if you have any issues or concerns. Take care and have a good afternoon.

Sydney Brewer had an amazing experience today job-shadowing in the OB/GYN Unit at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center. Not only did she view two live births, but was provided an unexpected opportunity to assist in one of the deliveries. Sydney noted, “I was blown away by the strength of the mothers and the composure of the doctors and nurses. It was absolutely amazing and definitely made me realize that I picked the right career path.” 😊 👶🏼🍼 Congratulations, Sydney! What an amazing experience!

Jim Lyons’ Oakfield Oaks Pee Wee Basketball team and Cliff Urquhart’s SA Lady Warriors have something in common, other than being basketball champions.... they are both good sports! Both teams were recognized and received good sportsmanship awards this season. Two teams, two awards, one community! So proud of these young ladies and their coaches for being recognized as polite and respectful members of our community. 💜
