CMHS Snow Day Protocol

CMHS Snow Day Protocol:
Everyone at Calais Middle/High School hopes everyone has been enjoying a bit of rest and relaxation over the holiday break. As the wintery weather approaches Maine and Washington County, the Calais Middle/High School will be moving to holding virtual snow days. These snow days will count as instructional days, therefore, not extending the scheduled school year calendar.
A message was sent on December 16th, which contained incorrect information regarding the Calais Middle/High School approved snow day protocol. Please refer to the corrected information included below for the 2021 Calais Middle/High School Virtual Snow Day protocol. We apologize for any previous confusion.
In the future, any day Calais Middle/High School is “canceled” due to inclement weather, we will be using the following protocol:
Calais Middle/High School ONLY
(other Calais schools will communicate their own snow day protocol specific to their students)
All student assignments will be posted through Google Classroom or students will receive work packets in advance of the snow day when that option would better support the learner. Students would be expected to complete the work online or within the packet on the same day school is cancelled. Teachers, as well as support and office staff, will be available through Google Classroom and school email from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Stay Safe,
Mary Anne Spearin
Principal, CMHS

Early College Workshop for 8th Graders

Attention 8th Graders –
While it may seem early, middle school is actually a great time to begin discussing various post-secondary opportunities, whether that be career, military, or college. For this reason, we collaborated with Colby College in late October to host an online workshop focused on building college awareness specifically for 8th grade students. And now, in an effort to include students who were unable to attend the first round of workshops, we are excited to collaborate with Colby once again to hold another round of workshops.
Below, you will find the dates and registration links to two, identical sessions of the 8th grade workshop.
Thursday, December 10, 4:00pm-6:00pm
Thursday, December 10, 7:00pm-9:00pm
We look forward to you joining us for this online, interactive workshop!

From the desk of the National Honor Society:
Hey Blue Devils! The Winter Wear Competition has come to a close. The winners? The recipients of your donations. There were a total of 94 items collected, which is excellent considering the circumstances.
Our next collection competition is right around the corner. It is our annual food drive of non-perishable items for the food pantry. This year with many people out of work, donations are more important then ever. Last year we collected 898 items for our local food pantry. Can we surpass 1,000 this year?
The Winter Carnival Food Drive will be running from Monday, December 7, to Friday, December 18.
