At this time, masks are mandatory for all students and staff members on busses and inside the school. The students are doing great! Please know that we provide many mask breaks, and students are able to take their masks off outdoors. It is also important that we take a lot of water breaks---especially in the afternoons when our classrooms heat up from the sun. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at or (207)938-4770


Please pack only water in those water bottles. We do not allow caffeinated drinks such as coffee or soda at school. If you would like to send juice with your student, please feel free to pack it in the snack or lunch bag.

Once everyone becomes familiar with the routine, arrival and dismissal will move right along. Thank you for being patient these first few days. I bet it is really hard not to be able to walk your students into the building on the first few days of school. Please know that they are greeted by staff inside and walked to their classrooms. In some cases, siblings are walking the younger students to class. The school is friendly and calm inside and the students did very well on this first day of school. Family pick up is at 2:30 in the driveway right in front of the school. It will look like a long line, but please be patient. It will move along a little faster every day:-)

All classroom teachers have a "DOJO" for messaging, sharing class events and sending out news. Please join your class DOJO using the instructions provided by your classroom teacher. If you download the app, it will try to invite you to "subscriptions" if you haven't used DOJO before. Please disregard those messages. Everything we use is "FREE" for families.
