For those of you who drop off or pick up your children at Windsor School, please note the following procedures in place as of January 8: We are asking parents to pull up as far as you are able to in the circle, no matter what grade your child is in. This will prevent backup in the circle. Students can walk to their respective doors on the sidewalk. Also, do not cross over into another lane unless directed so by as staff member. Thank you for helping us expedite the procedure, but more importantly, keeping us all safe.

Dirigo Lodge #104 A.F. & A.M. has had great success with the Bikes For Books at Windsor Elementary School for the past eight years. The 2019 program awarded 20 new bikes and helmets to very excited students. A total of 148 bikes have been awarded thus far. Dirigo Lodge #104 had planned to award an additional 20 bikes in June 2020. Windsor Elementary School was closed early in 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions. Dirigo Lodge #104 has also had difficulty in obtaining bikes to award in 2020. Dirigo Lodge has decided to award the bikes as they become available. Bikes will be awarded for Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades during the last week of October. Bikes for Books is a reading incentive program for students in Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth grade. Every time a student reads a book and passes an Accelerated Reader test, his or her name is entered into a drawing to win a new bicycle and helmet. One boy and one girl are chosen from each grade level. The more books a student reads, the more chances he or she has to win. The Bikes for Books program is made possible through partnerships within our local community businesses. The company's donation is matched 2:1 with a grant from the Maine Masonic Charitable Foundation. The program for 2020 was made possible by the following businesses: Hussey's General Store, J.C. Stone Inc., Mark’s Saw Shop, Norm's Small Engine, Netco Inc., Ron’s Auto Electric, Rideout's Market & Grill, Windsor Veterinary Clinic, Elmer’s Barn, Aunt Gin’s Restaurant, and Otto’s Restaurant.

Windsor Elementary School's phones are back up and running. If you need to reach the office, you can call them at 445-2356 as usual. Thank you for your patience!
Thank you for your patience this morning during drop-off! We were so happy that many of you were able to drop your children off, and realize that we need to give you more space. Tomorrow we will utilize the loop through the staff parking lot. This should make things go a bit quicker, but with the help of staff we did it all in 20 minutes today!
The phone lines at Windsor School have down this morning. We are working with the phone company to get them repaired ASAP. In the meantime, if you need to reach the school, please call RSU 12 Central Office at 549-3261, and you will be connected. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Here is the drop-off and pick-up procedures for Windsor School. Please read this carefully as several things have changed this year. If your child takes the bus, s/he will have their temperature taken upon entering the bus. S/he must wear a mask and will have an assigned seat. Upon arrival at school, the pre-k to second graders will get off first. The 3-5 kids will get off next, followed by the middle schoolers. Students will go to their classroom, where they will wash their hands before eating breakfast. Once they are seated, they may take off their masks to eat. We have extended breakfast time to 8:30 as we realize things will take more time this year. If your child is dropped off, we are asking you to wait in your car until a staff member indicates it is your child’s turn to come in. They will take your child’s temperature and then s/he will go to the classroom for breakfast. Middle school students can be dropped off at the gym entrance. All other students should be dropped off at the back main entrance. If you have multiple children, drop them off at the youngest child’s entrance. Dismissal will be at 2:00 this year, so students who ride the bus will be called out by grade level, starting with the older students. Again, there will be assigned seats on the bus, and masks must be worn. If you pick up your child, we are asking you to let us know as early in the day as possible so that we can let teachers know. Please do not arrive at pickup time and call the office. We are asking you to let us know your pickup plans before 1:30. If you know you are picking your child up every day, you can send in an email or note to that effect once. You may begin arriving to pick up your child as early as 1:50. When you arrive, we will have a cell number posted you to text with your child’s name and teacher. We will then send your child out under adult supervision. As you can imagine, this will take some patience on all fronts, so please remember that we are all doing our best.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
