Calais Middle/High School – April 1st Update

Calais Middle/High School would like to thank students, parents, guardians, family members, and friends, who continue to support our students during this very difficult time. Our faculty and staff continue to learn and grow, as well. If they have not already done so, all middle and high school courses will be utilizing online remote learning by the end of this week.

We continue to urge students to create and maintain learning routines that include specific times dedicated to course work and connecting regularly with teachers. If questions arise or a student is struggling with a particular assignment, please reach out directly to the teacher via email. If a student is struggling with Internet or access to a device, please contact the front office to request paper copies of all course work. It can be pick up at the school or mailed directly to your home.

A reminder that CM/HS will be open daily from 9am – 1pm and teachers will be accessible online during that time, too. Access to our building will be limited to the front entry, but a drop-off/pick-up box is available for student work. Students, who need their school Gmail password reset, should call the front office. At this time, we encourage people with questions to call, instead of visiting the school building.

If students would like to receive breakfast and lunch meals, please contact the Calais Elementary School to sign up if you have not already done so.

Lastly, we want you to know we miss our kids. Please reassure your child(ren) that CM/HS administration, faculty, and staff hold them in our thoughts daily and can’t wait until we are able to work in person with them again.

Stay safe everyone!

Calais Middle/High School Update

Calais Middle/High School Update

Because of the extension of remote learning for Calais School District students, CM/HS would like to provide some reminders and updates to our students and parents/guardians.

Students and parents/guardians are reminded school work is required. Please continue to set routines for work completion and returning work to teachers, whether paper copies or online. Be sure your child(ren) has logged into their school Gmail account. That is where they will find the Google Classroom invites from specific teachers (link found below).

CM/HS was scheduled for our Third Quarter grades to close on March 27th. Because of the change in routine, we are extending the grade closing date to April 3rd with report cards being sent home on April 13th.

On April 10th, the final senior class ranking will be determined. Seniors – please be sure to meet your due dates for all current work.  If you have any questions about missing work or assignments, please contact your teacher directly.

With the remote learning schedule extended to April 27th, Calais Middle/High School administration, faculty and staff remain committed to the education of your child(ren). The original purpose of a short-term remote learning experience was to review, reinforce, practice and enrich skills students have been working on. With the extended schedule for remote learning, teachers need to begin moving forward with content. CM/HS will be working to provide instructional videos, links, and/or resources to our students through Google Classrooms. If students are unable to access Google Classroom, please contact the front office at 454-2591 so alternative arrangements can be made.

Moving forward, students should consider each Friday a due date for assigned work in order to avoid falling behind in their classes. If physically returning work to school, please remember our front office is open 9am to 1pm Monday through Friday.

Once again, the CM/HS administration, faculty, and staff thank you for the work being done at home.  Our students, families, and communities remain in our thoughts during this difficult time. Please contact us at any time if you have any questions.
