This includes: · Wearing a mask in public and increased hand hygiene measures. · Washing your hands with soap and warm water after using the bathroom, before and after eating, after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. · When soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. · Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands and avoid close contact with people who are sick. · Cover your cough or sneeze and disinfect your hands afterwards. · Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaner or wipe.

Exposure and travel reminders ----------------------------------------- Dear RSU #34 Community, We hope our families had a wonderful and safe February vacation week! In this notice please see a reminder about travel and what to do if you learn of confirmed or likely exposure to a COVID-positive person. Please also continue to be vigilant about daily home screening, masking, social distancing, and hand hygiene to keep the spread of COVID slow! Exposure to COVID: Please remember that the SARS-COV-2 virus spreads quickly, and in some cases without symptoms. It is very important to communicate quickly with us if you learn at any time of a positive or likely case of COVID-19, so we can be sure we’ve notified anyone who may have been in close contact with the student or staff member during an infectious period. Throughout the school vacation we have had staff checking the COVID hotline multiple times daily. Please leave a detailed message at (207) 827-7171 (choose option zero), or use the webform at http://rsu34me.apptegy.us/o/rsu-34/page/covid19--2 Travel Overview Each year many families use school vacation weeks opportunities for travel, but at this time such travel brings with it additional risks for contracting and transmitting COVID-19, according to the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (US CDC). It is critically important that our school communities continue to do everything we can in order to keep our schools safe, open, and able to provide in-person instruction. The US CDC has issued strong guidance to the American people to continue to limit our interactions and travel at this time. We encourage our staff and families to know the risks and the requirements for travel, and to communicate with your school office if you have travelled so that our schools can continue to operate safely. Travel within the U.S. In accordance with Maine travel guidelines, any staff or students who travel within the US to any state other than New Hampshire or Vermont (no restrictions as of 2/21/21 for these two states only), will be required to either: 1. Complete a 10-day quarantine upon arrival in Maine and continue to monitor for signs and symptoms for an additional 4 days OR 2. Obtain and receive a negative COVID-19 antigen or molecular (PCR, NAAT, or isothermal) test result within 72 hours prior to arrival back into Maine to forgo the 10-day quarantine. Travelers may be tested upon arrival in Maine as well but must quarantine while they wait for test results. A negative COVID-19 antigen or molecular (PCR, NAAT, or isothermal) test result will allow the traveler to leave quarantine early. International Travel CDC has also provided guidance as it relates to international travel. The current risk assessment level for COVID-19 is at 4, or VERY HIGH, for nearly every country. You can review the risk levels by country, here (t.ly/47xI). At this time, all air passengers coming to the United States, including U.S. citizens, are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before boarding a flight back to the United States. See Frequently Asked Questions about this requirement for more information (t.ly/urM0). Upon return to the United States, staff and students must quarantine. International travelers can return to school after they: 1. Get tested 3-5 days after travel, and receive a negative test result AND stay home and self-quarantine for 7 days after travel. 2. Do not get tested and stay home for 10 days after travel. 3. Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days, whether you get tested or not. (t.ly/J2w3) Any staff or students who have travelled internationally will not be permitted inside the school building for a minimum of 7 days, even if a negative test has occurred. Returning to work or school after travel is not dependent on the length of time spent within the restricted states or other countries, meaning that a day visit still requires any person to quarantine and/or test as described above. All members of the household who travel must test or quarantine if over 12 months old. Testing site information for Maine can be found, here (https://www.maine.gov/covid19/restartingmaine/keepmainehealthy/testing). Any person who is quarantining should stay home, and not have in-person contact with others unless there is an emergency. Please continue to follow best practice safety protocols: wear a mask, keep physical distance, wash your hands and monitor for symptoms, and help protect our schools and neighbors. Thank you for your hard work and support!
