  • No PreK - Grade 8 Transportation This Week

    TO: RSU 63 PARENTS and STAFF
    FROM:  SUSAN SMITH, SUPERINTENDENT/DIRECTOR of CURRICULUM & INSTR.
    RE:  NO PRE-K to GRADE 8 TRANSPORTATION THIS WEEK
    DATE:  MONDAY, JANUARY 18, 2021

    An individual associated with RSU 63 recently tested positive for COVID-19.  Other RSU 63 staff and students have come in contact with this individual and therefore may be exposed to the virus.  

    Our School Nurse, Dawna Bickford and I are calling all close contacts directly and will complete those calls today, Monday, January 18th. Individuals identified as close contacts will receive information on next steps and quarantine rules.

    We will continue to follow our Green Schedule.  However, we are unable to provide transportation to the Eddington, Holden and Holbrook Schools this week.  There will be no buses to the RSU 63 schools on Tuesday, January 19th; Wednesday, January 20th; and Thursday, January 21st.

    Parents are encouraged to bring their students who do not need to quarantine to school and pick them up.  Please help us keep traffic from backing up and becoming dangerous by staggering drop off and pick-ups as much as you can. 

    o   If the student’s last name begins with A-L, please drop-off 
     at Holden and Eddington starting at 8:00am
     at Holbrook starting at 8:10am.

    o   If the student’s last name begins with A-L, please pick-up
      at Holden and Eddington starting at 2:30
      at Holbrook starting at 2:50.

    o   If the student’s last name begins with M-Z, please-drop off
      at Holden and Eddington starting at 8:15am and
      at Holbrook starting at 8:25am.

    o   If the student’s last name begins with M-Z, please pick-up
      at Holden and Eddington starting at 2:45
      at Holbrook starting at 3:05.

    If you are not able to provide transportation to school, please have your child connect remotely via the “morning meeting” link (provided by Ashley Allen for Holbrook students and classroom teachers for Eddington and Holden students).

    We ask that everyone continue to monitor yourself and your children for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. Call a health care provider if symptoms start and stay home if you are sick.

    We will continue to keep a close eye on the situation and will notify you if there are any changes. 

    Please contact Dawna Bickford (dbickford@rsu63.org) if you or your child tests positive for COVID-19.  Questions regarding RSU 63 schools can be directed to Susan Smith, RSU 63 Superintendent by emailing ssmith@rsu63.org or calling 843-7851 Ext. 2.  

    For general COVID-19 questions, dial 211 (or 1-866-811-5695).  You can also text your ZIP code to 898-211 or email info@211maine.org.  More information can be found at www.maine.gov/dhhs/coronavirus or www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.

    People at the Maine CDC and RSU 63 are working together to make sure appropriate steps and precautions are being taken.   Thank you for your understanding and support.

  • TO: RSU 63 PARENTS, STAFF, and COMMUNITY MEMBERS

    FROM:  SUSAN SMITH, SUPERINTENDENT/DIRECTOR of CURRICULUM & INSTR.

    RE:  GREEN SCHEDULE

    DATE:  FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 2021

    Schedule:  Maine CDC and DOE’s categorization for Penobscot County continues to remain “Green.” As long as our local RSU 63 health conditions also stay good, we will continue to follow our Green Schedule when school resumes on Tuesday, January 19th

    If we need to change to a Yellow or Red Schedule, I will send an email and use our SchoolMessenger phone call system to let people know about the change.   

    Enjoy the long weekend and again, thank you very much for your help as we work together to follow CDC guidelines and provide safe learning environments for our students, staff, and community. 

    "Intelligence plus character — that is the goal of true education."

  • Bullying/Harassing Concern Report Information

    Holden, Eddington, and Holbrook Schools all promote, recognize, and expect positive behavior. Our expectations are taught through our Core Values; Honesty, Kindness, Respect, Responsibility, Compassion, and Courage. Students are recognized for making good choices in a variety of ways including gold slips, kudos cards, and “Busted” slips. We are also aware that incidents of bullying and harassment have a negative impact on school climate and culture as well as academic achievement. This year we have added an online, anonymous reporting system. CLICK ON HEADLINE LINK TO READ MORE.
