Dear SAU 70 School Community,
Based on guidance from our state leadership and local public health officials, we will be closing schools effective immediately. Beginning tomorrow, Monday, March 16, we will be closed for one week to plan and implement remote learning options for each of our schools. In keeping with state planning, we will plan to move to remote learning from March 23 through April 3, with a strong possibility of extension through the end of the semester. We will continue to stay in close contact with our public health officials and our state leaders as we determine what role our schools will be able to play as we move forward. I will communicate through this School Messenger system on a daily basis to ensure that we are able to work together to see each other and our community through this public health emergency. I will contact employees later this evening to provide more detail about our plans for the days and weeks to come.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed thoughtful insight through this challenging situation. Your messages of support, constructive criticism, and offers of help have been truly valuable and greatly appreciated.
