Calais School Dept Update – April 27

Spring has finally arriving in Washington County!

Remote learning did resume this morning for all Calais students. After a school break, it can be particularly difficult to get students back on a regular learning schedule, so we recommend re-establishing a routine and setting a time for school work. Our faculty and staff will be available from 9am – 1pm daily to assist students with any questions.

Social distancing has been incredibly impactful on our students, staff, and community. CM/HS is very fortunate to have the Blue Devil Health Center and the AWARE grant, which is able to offer remote counseling services for any of our students struggling with mental health during this time. If you believe your student would benefit from the counseling services available, please contact Mrs. Spearin at 454-2591 or at mspearin@calalisschools.org. In addition, NAMI (National Alliance of Mental Illness) Maine has established a new mental health support line for young people ages 14-20 during the Coronavirus outbreak and beyond. The text line is 207-515-8398 and operates from noon to 10pm everyday.

Meal services for Calais School Department students resumed this morning. If you would like to start receiving breakfast and/or lunch meals services, please call the Calais Elementary School at 454-2000. You do not need to do anything if you were already signed up prior to Spring Break.

For Calais Middle/High School students struggling with device access or connectivity, please contact the front office at 454-2591. For Calais Elementary School students struggling with device access or connectivity, please contact the front office at 454-2000.

A reminder that the Calais School Department Central Office is open from 9am – Noon Monday through Friday and can be reached at 454-7561.

Coming back from Spring Break without being able to see our students has been very difficult for all employees. Calais School Department faculty, staff, and administration truly appreciate our parents/guardians and family and community members, who are supporting our students through this time. Thank you.

Stay safe,
