May 20, 2020 Hello, A couple of quick updates on COVID testing and Vaccines in Maine. Yesterday the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices endorsed the booster for children at least five months after they received their two-dose series. This would be a third dose for healthy children and a fourth dose for children who are immunocompromised. You can check with your PCP or COVID-19 Vaccination in Maine to schedule a vaccination. Free COVID tests are available to order again through https://www.covid.gov/tests and https://www.accesscovidtests.org/ . They are also available in the front offices at your children’s schools, one box of 5 tests per student. Thanks very much! The Marshwood District Nurses

May 23, 2022 A message from MSAD 35 MAINE Dear District Families, On Friday, May 20, 2022, The J. M. Smucker Co. issued a recall of select JIF ® peanut butter products sold in the U.S. due to potential Salmonella contamination. The recalled peanut butter was distributed nationwide in retail stores and other outlets. Recalled products include the products below with lot codes 1274425 – 2140425 (to find the lot code, look alongside the best-if-used-by date). Prior to the notification of this recall, this product was served in the cafeterias at Eliot Elementary and Great Works Elementary. As soon as the cafeteria team was notified of the recall, they diligently reviewed the products in our kitchen pantries and disposed of the affected peanut butter product, following rigorous protocols for recall situations. Marshwood School District continues to serve alternative brand peanut butter and pre-packaged peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that are not part of the recall. Families with questions about the peanut butter they may have purchased from retail locations can visit the J.M. Smucker Company announcement on the FDA website. If you have further questions, please contact Karan Pfingst, Food Services Director at (207) 384-4500. Sincerely, Karan Pfingst, Food Services Director

Special Olympics Update Good afternoon all, Today our York County Area Management Team and the planning committee at Noble High School met to discuss the current uptick of Covid-19 cases within York County. It is with a heavy heart that we bring you this news today (a week before the games). We have made the difficult decision to cancel this year's 2022 York County Spring Games at Noble. With the increase of cases in our area, we think it is best not to gather in large groups at this time.

June 15th LAST DAY OF SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS ½ DAY

April 25, 2022 Dear Marshwood Community: This morning the South Berwick Police Department received a phone call indicating that there was a threat in a student backpack in “room 50 English class”. The same message was received by several other schools locally and in Canada. The South Berwick Police Department shared that it appeared to be a robocall that was focused on "York" or "York County" as York High School and a school in Canada with York in the title also received the threat. Marshwood High School did not receive any direct threat or notification. We also do not have a room 50 at Marshwood High School. Out of an abundance of caution we followed our crisis procedures and students were asked to shelter in place. Both the South Berwick Police and Fire Departments carefully checked our building and found no credible threat. Students have since been released back in their regular classes. I want to thank all students and staff for their quick and careful response to this situation. Situations like these are unsettling and alarming. Please know that student and staff safety is always our top priority. We appreciate the partnership and quick response from the South Berwick Emergency Response Team. Our school counselors are available to support any students who may have been upset by this event. Thank you for your partnership and your support of our schools. Sincerely, John Caverly, Superintendent of Schools, RSU 35

March 22, 2022 Dear Families, As you are all aware, we went mask optional two weeks ago. Many of you are also aware that the usual late winter/early spring stuff is back in the mix……..colds, allergies, gastrointestinal illness, sore throats and strep. With the exception of allergies, all of these illnesses are spread from person to person. The best way to keep the transmission of these illnesses down is to hand wash, cover coughs, and stay home when not feeling well. We’re asking everybody to please keep a few things in mind when making the decision to send your child to school. Stick to the basics……. First and foremost…..Please keep them home when they are sick. For a stomach bug wait until at least 24 hours have passed since the last episode of vomiting or diarrhea. For strep throat, please wait for 24 hours on antibiotics before returning to school. For allergies, if your student has a history of seasonal allergies, treat as you usually do and if you’re sure it’s allergies send to school as usual. A negative covid test is great, but it doesn’t mean that your child is ok to go to school. If they have symptoms, keep them home. Testing is recommended for all people with covid symptoms. If you are unable to test, please contact your school nurse. If your child had symptoms, has tested negative, and symptoms are resolving, they are allowed to come to school. For any questions, particularly if you have other family members at home who are positive for COVID please contact your school nurse. The recommendation is still that unvaccinated household contacts should quarantine for 5 days. If your child has had a fever, please ensure that they have been fever free for a full 24 hours without the use of medication before returning to school. Free COVID tests available for Maine residents can be found at www.accessCOVIDTests.org or through the federal program COVIDtests.gov York Hospital is offering rapid PCR testing at their drive through COVID Testing Center. You do not need a provider order but you do need to call 207-351-2046 to make an appointment. It will be billed to your insurance as a “lab”. It will be covered by COVID Relief money if you do not have insurance. Thanks and as always, please contact us if you have any questions. The Marshwood District Nurses
