Dear Parents and Guardians,
During the past several days RSU 20 schools have experienced a high number of absences due to illness of both staff and students and has spiked in the past two days. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has indicated that the seasonal flu, COVID-19 and RSV are on the spread in our communities at this time.
In an attempt to slow the spread of illness within our district RSU 20 schools will be closed for the remainder of this week (Wednesday (12/7)/ Thursday (12/8)/ and Friday (12/9).
School will resume on Monday, December 12.
During the time of closure our custodial and transportation staff will work to deep clean our buildings and buses.
Attached is additional information provided by the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Maine CDC.
