To Our RSU 13 Families:

We are asking that all families please complete this survey (more details below): 

At this point, we do not have a clear picture of how long our schools will remain closed, and from Commissioner Pender Makin’s message to schools following Governor Mills’ declaration of a civil emergency last night, schools will be closed for “an indefinite period of time.”  It will likely be a period of time up to April 27th.  Read More

Dear Members of the RSU 13 Schools Community:

I am writing to update you with current information on our preparations for any potential outbreak of Corona Virus, or COVID-19.

Please understand that the situation is changing rapidly, and though at the time of this communication there are no confirmed cases in Maine, all indications are that there will be in the near future. The following are some recommendations and determinations.  Read More

Community Conversations About Our Future

Dear Participants in RSU 13’s Community Conversations:

We are writing to you to express our sincere appreciation for your recent participation in our series of events, Community Conversations – Envisioning the Schools of Our Future 2.0.  The active interest, energy, and enthusiasm that you brought to these discussions, and the thoughtful insights and recommendations offered, contributed significantly to the features that have now been highlighted in the Summary Report

As promised, this summary report was shared with all who participated, whether by attending one of our on-site events or by offering your input via the RSU 13 website survey option.  This report was also shared with all School Board members and faculty, and will be a valued perspective informing the continuing work of RSU 13 as we continue planning for and designing the schools of our future.

Soliciting and actively valuing community input has been a hallmark of what has contributed to the success of recent development efforts within RSU 13. We thank you for continuing that tradition and be assured that your collective voice matters as we continue to strive to do our very best, for every student, every day. Please also know that we will continue to remain in frequent communication with our community-at-large as this important work continues. Thank You!

With sincere appreciation,
