School Messenger

posted by Iris Meehan   [ updated ]

Dear Parents, 


MDIRSS is excited to announce the launch of a new service that will enhance communication by allowing us to deliver important information to you via SMS text messaging. This service is not intended to replace our existing means of communication– rather it will enhance them. 

The service is provided by SchoolMessenger. Information can be found at www.SchoolMessenger.com/tm 

MDIRSS will only use the service to provide information that is timely and relevant. 

In order to participate in the new service you must indicate your willingness to receive text messages to your phone. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete. 

Simply text any one of the following words to the number 68453subscribe, optin, yes.

You’ll know you were successful if you receive the following reply message: 

You are registered to receive aprox 3 msgs/mo. Txt STOP to quit, HELP for help. 

You’ll want to repeat the opt-in process for any wireless numbers that you wish to include. 

In addition to performing the opt-in process above you’ll want to insure that MDIRSS has your wireless number(s) in our student information database. If you haven’t already provided that information to your school please contact them and provide them with that information. 

MDIRSS will be officially launching the new service in the next few weeks, so until then you won’t receive any further text messages. 

Please note, although MDIRSS does not charge you for this service, it does not pay for text message charges that may be incurred by you for sending or receiving text messages. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges. 

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Josh Young, MDIRSS Educational Technology Coordinator, at (207) 288-5040 or joshua.young@mdirss.org. Thank you.

6th, 7th, and 8th grade students from Tremont and Ashley Bryan schools visited Quebec City, October 3-5th.  The trip was an opportunity for students to practice their French language skills, as well as deepen their knowledge of the history and culture of Quebec.  Students visited Montmorency Falls and Canyon Sainte-Anne, did a scavenger hunt of the old city, as well as dined, danced and played spoons at a local "Sugar Shack".

From the Nurse!

LICE: Let's try to prevent infestations! There are many alternative and safe preventive treatments using essential oils (some need to be diluted slightly in a carrier oil), as well as commercial products. If your child does have lice it is ESSENTIAL to comb, comb, comb on a daily basis. It is the single most effective way to get rid of the little buggers! Help us prevent an infestation by keeping your child's hair pulled back, rubbing their head with essential oils and of course, by combing!

VIRUS ALERT: Severe Respiratory Illness Associated with Enterovirus D68. This nasty virus has been spreading rapidly in the USA. Be on the lookout for sudden and severe respiratory symptoms (with or without fever), especially with those who have asthma. HAND WASHING IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!

HYDRATION: Please remind your child to drink lots of water. Proper hydration can turn around a lot of potential disruptions to a school day, headaches being most common. 

NUTRITION: Start your child's day with a bit of protein. Even if it's half a piece of toast with peanut butter, the protein will give them staying power through the morning! 

HEALTH PROGRAMS: Be on the lookout for our Flu Clinic on October 22nd and our first Dental Clinic on November 5th. Permission slips will be coming your way SOON! We will also begin routine vision and hearing screenings on Kindergarten,1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th grade soon.
