Responding to students/staff who test positive for COVID-19
    • Whenever a school receives information of a student or staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19, school administration will work collaboratively with the Maine CDC who will provide guidance to form an appropriate response. Contact tracing will be conducted by the Maine CDC in which close contacts will be identified and advised on how to proceed. Timely communication to parents/families regarding a positive case of a student/staff member will be guided by the Maine CDC.
