All MDIRSS - AOS #91 campuses are CLOSED until 27 March 2020 due to public health and safety concerns. A notice will be posted when schools re-open.
MDIRSS - AOS #91 does NOT recommend using playground equipment at this time due to the fact that it is not manually or chemically sterilized. Parks and trails remain open for use with proper social distancing. Thank you for your cooperation!
For resources and information, please visit the Mount Desert Island Regional School System AOS #91 website at www.mdirss.org.
Today was another day with full sun , and although it is cold, it felt nice at a time when things may otherwise be feeling tumultuous. I hope that you are finding ways to take deep breaths, destress, and be with your family. Please know that you and your children are on the minds and in the hearts of TCS staff while we work to navigate recent changes and challenges. Most important is your health well-being, physically and mentally. If there is one thing that I know for sure, it is that the Tremont community is fierce in supporting those in need and our children. Now is a perfect time to support one another, and show compassion and empathy while practicing social distancing, in so far as possible.
I spent much of my day today participating in remote meetings with AOS #91 administration focusing on Operations, and Teaching and Learning. Several committees have formed that include key people from across the district to consider and determine next steps around things such as support for families, and remote learning opportunities. Dr. Gousse will continue to send daily updates to keep you well informed. If you know of a family in need, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Right now, it's important that we maintain connections between the school, students, and families. To help with this, the Wildcat Weekly newsletter will continue to go out on Fridays. I would appreciate your support in ensuring that these newsletters help us all find positivity and joy during this unusual time. This week, I'd love to receive photos of students, families, and TCS staff safely doing something that brings joy, with a caption explaining the photo. You can send your photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Look for a few photos each week in the Wildcat Weekly.
You and your child can expect to hear from teachers later in the week as well. Again, right now, while we develop a framework for remote learning, connections are critical to keep students and teachers engaging with one another. Relationships have always been at the heart of what we do, and never has this been put to the test as much as it likely will be right now. Know that teachers don't have answers yet about remote learning, but they will also be receiving more information throughout the next few days.
At this time all MDIRSS AOS #91 campuses are closed until March 27, 2020. Please be understanding that no visitors or staff are permitted to enter the building without permission from the building administrator until further notice. I look forward to seeing smiling faces in photos and sharing those with you all. Please reach out if you need anything.
Sending you all the best,
