Dear Parents/Guardians of Students Participating in Summer School, 

The Maine Department of Education, in conjunction with the CDC, has issues the following COVID related updates:

  • Per the US CDC order related to transportation, all people on public or private school-provided transport, including buses and vans, are required to wear a mask.


  •  Per the updated US CDC’s guidance, masks, and social distancing when possible, are still strongly recommended when inside for those who are unvaccinated, including staff and students.


RSU 56 has a board-approved Framework that indicates we will follow all MDOE and CDC guidance; therefore, starting on Monday, July 19, 2021, all summer school participants must follow the guidance outlined above. 



Pam Doyen, Superintendent of RSU 56
