School Board Agenda for September 1, 2021 https://5il.co/y3eg
Fall Reopening Information August 18, 2021 This evening, August 18, the MSAD 35 Board of Directors approved the MSAD 35 2021 – 2022 School Re-Opening and Re-entry Plan. This plan was developed in accordance with the Maine Center for Disease Control, The Maine Department of Education, MSAD 35 Advising Physician, MSAD 35 District Nurses. As stated during the spring, MSAD 35 schools are preparing for the full return of students to in-person instruction. We are extremely excited about this and are looking forward to welcoming students on September 1st and 2nd. The creation of this plan has been a trying task. Health and safety requirements and recommendations have been released slowly over the past three weeks. On Thursday, August 12, 2021, the standard operating procedure from the Maine Department of Education was released. As you review that document, there are portions of that document that are requirements, such as how close contracts are determined, and other portions that are recommendations, such as whether or not to be involved in pool testing. As we developed this plan, there were two critical components that were at the core of our decision-making. Those core issues are the safety of students, staff, and our community and the best way to keep students in school. Universal masking for our district schools will be part of this plan. For the 2020 – 2021 academic year, our greatest struggle was the fact that 719 students in our district had to quarantine due to the fact that they were considered close contacts. Consider that a typical quarantine lasts 8 to 14 days. That is in excess of 6,000 days (calculating for weekends) of instruction or days where families were adversely impacted by quarantine. Under the Maine Department of Education Standard Operating Procedures, universal masking in a school building will eliminate the need to contact trace in a classroom setting (not cafeteria), if all staff and students are masked appropriately. With this change in procedure, universal masking may significantly reduce the number of quarantine days, allowing students to attend school in person with far fewer interruptions. It also may significantly decrease the negative impact on families' schedules and provide the safest environment for students and staff. I fully understand that many members of our community have drastically different opinions on the topic of masking. Please understand that this was an extremely difficult decision. With the Federal Center for Disease Control, Maine CDC, The American Academy of Pediatrics, and our District Physician supporting masking, the focus on the safety of all students was the deciding factor. I have been in contact with the Maine CDC in order to gain an understanding of the vaccination and community transmission thresholds in which they would no longer recommend masking for our high school students. It is my hope to remove the masking requirement at Marshwood High School, where staff and students have the opportunity to be vaccinated, as soon as we safely can. As vaccines for our younger students become available and recommendations from public health organizations evolve we will continue to evaluate and adjust our plans and procedures. I have included a link to the district’s “MSAD 35 School Reopening Plan” to this letter. This is a detailed document that will provide answers to the vast majority of questions. In addition, the document includes a Frequently Asked Questions section to provide clarity on specific questions. In addition, you will be hearing from your child’s individual school(s) in the next 10 days to prepare for the start of the school year. This plan will go into effect on Monday, August 23rd, 2021. As always, I am grateful for the community's support our district has received during this difficult time. It was my hope that this school year would allow us to return to a more normal school experience. We will need to once again be vigilant and work together as we continue to navigate this global pandemic. John Caverly
