Due to a delay in receiving updated information from the Maine Center for Disease Control/Department of Education that had been anticipated this week, please be advised that the earlier change in date for the August School Board meeting has been reconsidered and the meeting will revert back to the originally scheduled date of August 23. The meeting will be held at 6:30 pm in the Telstar library. It will also be broadcast virtually. The agenda for that meeting will be posted on the district website on Thursday, August 19. 

I apologize for any confusion that this may have caused but it will be important to have the most updated information available for the Board to consider when making any decisions related to masking and the 2021-2022 return to school plans. On a related note, please be advised that federal guidelines require that masking on school buses will still be mandated for all students and drivers when school resumes on September 1. 

Best wishes. 
Dave Murphy, Ed.D. 
MSAD 44 Superintendent of Schools
