Dear MSAD #1 Students, Parents, and Staff:

I am writing to inform you all about the next phase of learning packet pick-ups.  Learning materials will be available for pick up at students’ schools on Tuesday, April 28.  Please read carefully as learning packet pick-up times vary by school.  As we did during the last round of packet distribution, we will implement a system where parents will drive into the school parking lot, be met by a school employee, and packets will be delivered directly to the vehicle.   If a learning packet is not picked up, we will arrange for the packet to be delivered.  Please see below for packet pick-up times and instructions for each school:
