School Nutrition Benefits for Families Impacted by Federal Shutdown

MDOE Priority Notice - With the federal shutdown impacting numerous Mainers, the Maine Department of Education wants to remind school districts that applications for free and reduced-price meals may be submitted at any time throughout the school year, even during a federal shutdown. If federal employees impacted by the shutdown would like to apply for school meal benefits for their children, they may so do through their local school district.

To apply – A special application can be downloaded from the Maine Department of Education’s website (linked by clicking on the title above) and submitted to your local school’s food service program.

Awesome News!

At its monthly meeting yesterday in Fairfield, the Maine State Board of Education approved the "Site Application" for the new Sumner Memorial High School new building project. The Board unanimously voted to approve the current Sumner location as the site for our new grades 6-12 facility. This is a major milestone and puts on the next track of our journey, the Concept Design. Although we have completed a substantial amount of work toward our Concept Design, there is still work to be done. The next Building Committee meeting will take place on December 18, starting at 6:30 p.m. at the District Services Facility.
