WINTER WEATHER AND SCHOOL

Regional School Unit No. 34 maintains a policy of keeping school in session under all conditions; except when weather and road conditions are hazardous and therefore jeopardizing student safety.  In general, when bus schedules are disrupted due to road conditions, schools will not be in session. Regardless of our decision to open or not open schools, we respect the right of parents to make the decision not to send your child(ren) to school when you feel their safety is at risk due to travel conditions.  In these cases, the absence will be excused when we receive a note from you stating you chose to keep your child at home for safety reasons.  NO-SCHOOL announcements will be made using our One Call Now system and posted on our website  www.rsu34.orgWe will also notify television and radio stations accepting such notices.

 Under most circumstances children are kept in school for the full day once they have reported to school.  Early dismissal of students would occur only when weather conditions would appear to be too hazardous to remain the full day or when travel conditions are predicted to significantly worsen prior to normal dismissal times. In this case, students would be dismissed early.  Parents who are not at home during the day should make alternate plans for their child(ren) and make the school aware of these emergency plans.  Advance planning for a neighbor, friend or family member to care for your child(ren) if they are dismissed early is critical.   We may also delay the start of school if travel conditions so warrant.  This too might require advance planning on your part if your child(ren) are not boarding the bus at their usual time. 

I STRONGLY URGE all parents to make plans in advance before the winter season.

Feel free to call my office (827-7171) or any of the school offices if you have questions or if we can assist you with making plans for your child(ren).  The safety and wellbeing of your child(ren) is most important to us.

A reminder from RSU #34 - flu season has started in Maine, we recommend getting your flu shot promptly!  This can be done at most doctor’s offices and pharmacies.  If you have trouble finding a place to get a flu shot, please check with your school nurse.  Remember:  wash your hands, cover your cough, and clean frequently to avoid sharing germs!  If you do get sick, please stay home until you have been fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medications).  If symptoms of any disease become severe, please seek medical attention.  With any questions, please contact your school nurse.
