SCHOOLS TO RESUME IN-CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION

November 24, 2020

BEAL'S ELEMENTARY, JONESPORT ELEMENTARY AND JONESPORT/BEALS HIGH SCHOOL WILL RESUME ALL IN-CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION STARTING ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2020. THE MAINE CDC AND DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION HAVE TOLD SCHOOL DISTRICTS THAT THE RATE OF TRANSMISSION IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS IS QUITE LOW COMPARED TO THE TRANSMISSION WITHIN THE GENERAL COMMUNITY. BECAUSE SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN MAINTAINING WEARING OF MASKS AND SOCIAL-DISTANCING, THE SCHOOLS HAVE THIS MUCH LOWER RATE OF COVID TRANSMISSION. 

THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS AND SCHOOL NURSE WILL ASSURE THAT ANY STAFF MEMBER OR STUDENT WHO TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID WILL REMAIN QUARANTINED FOR THE FULL QUARANTINE PERIOD BEFORE RETURNING TO SCHOOL. WE WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO ENFORCE SOCIAL-DISTANCING, THE WEARING OF MASKS AND WASHING HANDS THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL DAY.

AS ALWAYS, WE WILL CLOSELY MONITOR THE SITUATION IN OUR SCHOOLS AND MAKE CHANGES TO THIS POLICY WHEN NECESSARY.
