We are resending the child care survey because we heard from several people that it would be helpful to know the anticipated costs in order to respond. Through a partnership with RSU 12, the Boys and Girls Club of Kennebec Valley is exploring options for providing child care in RSU 12 schools in the coming year. The weekly cost is expected to be about $90 during the school year and $125 for a vacation week. In order to inform these plans, please take a moment to complete this survey and let us know if your family is interested in childcare before or after school and on school vacations. The survey will be open until Thursday, July 16. We apologize for having to ask you to complete it again but hope the information about cost is helpful. Thank you! https://forms.gle/N723adspLGCS8FEY8

RSU 12 is excited to share this information from the Maine Department of Education. Some of our teachers are involved in this project! Many thanks to them and to all of the teachers that made this possible. Maine Public, the Maine Department of Education, and Educate Maine have joined forces to create original, educational programming for grade school students in Grades 3 to 5. Dedicated teachers from across Maine have developed original video lessons, pulling content from their own lesson plans and sources to provide exceptional learning opportunities for Maine students. The Learning Space will be broadcast on Maine Public Television at 12:30 p.m. each weekday starting on Monday, April 27. As more episodes are developed, the broadcast schedule will expand to run from Noon to 1:00. Episodes of The Learning Space will be archived for later viewing on numerous platforms online including on mainepublic.org. The Learning Space will air through the spring to mid-June.
Unless conditions change, RSU 12 classrooms will remain closed and RSU 12 students will continue distance learning until the last day of school, June 12th. Find more information about this extended classroom closure here, https://5il.co/fa08
