MMS Update from Principal Hatch 3/18/2020
Hello all Families!
I have had a number of parents and students picking up items in the last two days. If you need to pick up a laptop or instrument then feel free to do so this week. We are open from 8:00-2:30 each day. I am not sure what will be happening by next week so please pick up items this week.
I wanted to update you that the resources for students to use this week are now available. RSU 18 has constructed a web page so that you can find district communication and links in one place. Please click here to access this information. Once you get to the site you will see letters posted from our superintendent and you will see a button that will take you to a list of schools.
When you click on Messalonskee Middle School you will see folders for all the teachers. Please encourage students to access the materials and complete some work every day. I will be communicating out the plan each week for that week.
Please know that from 9:00-11:00AM you can pick up a breakfast & lunch at the front of our school. You can pick up 3 days worth of meals at one stop.
Staying in Touch
I would encourage you to maintain the social distancing that is currently being recommended by the CDC. It is important to keep physical space between us to ensure that we slow the spread of this virus. It is not the time for overnights and getting together with friends. That being said, it is difficult to be apart as we are all social creatures. I would encourage your child to stay in communication with their friends. Talk on the phone with a friend while eating their lunch. You can also have your family go for a walk, play a game or read a book together. It is important that while we are physically distancing ourselves that we stay socially connected and able to support each other. Take care of yourselves and I will send out more information as it becomes available.
