This week the weather brought seven inches of snow to my home in Winterport. While the teachers and staff have been hard at work planning and reaching out to all of you, I decided to offer them a “Snowcially Distanced” stress reliever. They were asked to compete in a snowman making contest and showing true Eagle spirit, they rose to the challenge. Judging was done by an elite panel of Snowmen Judges not associated with our EDPS community. Please see the EDS PTF FB page or the ED REC FB page for pictures of the top four winners. Other entries will be posted on the school website on our District’s webpage rsu19.org. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did making and sharing them with each other..
The staff and I appreciate all you are doing to support your children and their learning at home. We know this is not an easy task and encourage you to reach out, ask questions, and to let us know where you need support. Please let us know if you do not have internet or do not have a device that your children can use each day to complete the work that is being posted. If online learning is not possible at your home, be sure to contact us.
In order to support physical distancing, the school office is closed. If you have a question or need assistance, please reach out using the following steps:
- Contact your child’s teacher, if you have further questions then
- Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if I do not respond before 6:00 PM then
- Call or text my cell phone at 207-356-9917 between the hours of 8:30 AM - 7:00 PM. Be sure to identify who you are and provide a number where you can be reached if you text or the call goes to my voice mail.
Meals continue to be provided to our students. If you have not signed up and would like to take advantage of this, please click on the following link and complete the form. Remember, someone must physically be there to get the meals from the bus/van drivers.
The rest of the week the weather is predicted to be 40 degrees plus and the sun is supposed to shine. I encourage everyone to go outside and play. Just remember to stay physically distanced and avoid gatherings/contact with those who do not live in your immediate household.
Again, your support, patience and concern for each other are so appreciated.
