Dear Students, Parents, and Staff,
As the holiday season approaches, it is critically important that our school community continues to do everything we can in order to keep our schools safe, open, and able to provide in-person instruction. Please be advised of the following procedures established by Governor Mills’ Keep Maine Healthy plan related to travel outside of the state of Maine.
Any staff or students who travel to any state other than New Hampshire or Vermont will be required to either:
- Quarantine for 14 days upon return to Maine, or
- Quarantine until receiving a negative test result. The test must be taken either:
- In the state you are visiting and no more than 72 hours prior to your return to Maine, or
- Once you return to Maine.
Any staff or students who have travelled to restricted states (those other than New Hampshire or Vermont) will not be permitted inside the school building until either the negative test result or 14 days has occurred.
This is not dependent on the length of time spent within the restricted states, meaning that a day visit still requires any person to quarantine for 14 days or until a negative test result is confirmed. All members of the household who travel must test or quarantine if over 12 months old.
Any person who is quarantining should stay home and not have in-person contact with others unless there is an emergency.
Thank you for your efforts in keeping our students and staff safe over the holidays.
