RSU 12 would like to remind our families that your children may be eligible for free and reduced meals in the fall. If your financial circumstances have changed recently, please consider completing the application at http://svrsu.schoollunchapp.com. This will allow us to determine whether we can provide your child meals for free or at a reduced rate in the first month of school next year. In the meantime, we will continue to bus meals to our students during the current school closure.

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

We have had several people express interest in attending and are hoping to have a few more. Please RSVP to Deb Taylor if you can join us. ------------------------------------------------ RSU 12 would like to improve its communication efforts. We want to be sure that parents and community members know what is happening in our schools and that we are providing information in a way that works for them. In order for us to make improvements, we need your help. We would like to know what kinds of things you'd like to hear about and how we can best communicate. Please join me on Wednesday, October 10:00 from 5:00-6:00 pm at Windsor Elementary School for an informal discussion to provide some input about how we can improve our communication efforts. This will be an opportunity for you to share your ideas, thoughts about what you'd like to see, and positive communication experiences you've had that we can learn from. We will brainstorm topics that you want to hear about, how often you'd like to have communication, and what kinds of communication means (paper newsletters, website updates, mobile apps, etc.) you'd prefer. If you are able to join us, please RSVP to Deb Taylor at email@example.com
