Marshwood Middle School Families, Staff and Students Earlier this week, the district was notified by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services that the drinking water at Marshwood Middle School had elevated levels of PFAS (forever chemicals), that exceed the safe drinking level standards established earlier this year. This testing is required to occur in all Maine Schools by December 31st 2022. Testing for PFAS is required for schools whose source for drinking water is a well. MSAD 35 opted to test the well water at both Marshwood Middle School and Marshwood High School (our only two schools that use well water as drinking source) early in July. When we received the preliminary results from our testing, Marshwood High School’s water fell below the state threshold, while Marshwood Middle School’s was elevated (56.9 parts per trillion as opposed to the state threshold of 20 parts per trillion). After working with our State water testing consultant to determine next steps, a water filtration system was ordered. Unfortunately, due to issues with the current supply chain, the installation of the system was not completed. We have been assured by the filtration system installer that the system will be completely installed by the end of this week. The new filter system will need to run for a number of days prior to the well water being retested. We have set September 16, 2022 as the date testing will be completed, but we are optimistic that this will be resolved prior to that time. Principal David Creech will be providing updates to the Marshwood Middle School Community, as information becomes available. In the meantime, the water at Marshwood Middle School should not be used for drinking and/or cooking. We have been assured that the water is absolutely safe to use for cleaning/washing hands etc. We have purchased a number of portable water bubblers to provide students with drinking water and for the cafeteria staff to have water to cook with. In addition, we are required to post signage at the Marshwood Middle School notifying the public of the current state of the well. In addition to this brief letter, I have included documentation that are required to be shared with families and consumers. You will receive an update from Mr. Creech prior to Wednesday, August 31st, 2022. If you have specific questions, please feel free to contact Todd Hughes our Facilities Director at 207-439-2438. Thank you for your continued support. John Caverly

Last week the 7th and 8th graders had the opportunity to take part in the MLTI conference. The theme of this year’s conference was: MLTI Launches Space2Connect! The intent of the conference theme is to reflect the many interpretations of space and connection as they relate to Maine students and their use of technology today. Students had the option to sign up for a variety of sessions some of the options included digital collage making, student podcasting and even an animation. Ms. Macedo organized the sign ups and gave t-shirts to staff and students that participated in the digital conference.

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
