Important Update Regarding Saturday, March 14, 2020

Dear RSU 24 Community,

We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation that is impacting the country, our state, and events of all kinds. The health and well-being of our staff, students, and community is our number one priority. With that being said, tomorrow (Saturday) we will not be having students attend school as originally planned, and instead will be having a Staff-Only day at each building to discuss and make plans for the continuation of education in the event of a school closure.

We will continue to update you as information is made available to us. More information will be provided by Superintendent Eastman in the next couple of days. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all work through this difficult time.

Coronavirus Letter

RSU 24 recognizes there are concerns about the potential for the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) within the United States and its possible impact on students, staff and schools in Maine. As we have done in the past (“SARS” virus in 2003 and the “Swine Flu H1N1” in 2009), RSU 24 will follow the guidance of the Maine CDC in conjunction with the frequent updates and communications we receive from the Maine Department of Education.

In 2015, a group of teachers started the #LoveTeaching movement to celebrate their reasons for staying in education. In that same spirit, our special education staff has shared messages to celebrate their love for teaching!

Resolution Passed for the Naming of the New Middle/High School Facility

At the January 7, 2020 Board meeting, a formal resolution was passed announcing the work of the RSU 24 naming committee for the new middle/high school facility. After research and consideration regarding the history of the name behind the current Sumner Memorial High School and the contributions of Dr. Charles M. Sumner to the greater local educational community, the committee created an online and paper based survey to gather detailed feedback about the future high school and middle school name(s). With an overwhelming number of 689 total responses from community members, Alumni, and students currently in grades 3-12, the committee was able to make an informed decision that upheld traditions, honored the work of Dr. Sumner, as well as supported the identity of two separate institutions that will lie under one roof. With a unanimous vote, the RSUB designated the forthcoming middle/high school facility in Sullivan, Maine to be named, in two parts, Sumner Memorial High School and Sumner Middle School. The property and structures on it will collectively be named the Charles M. Sumner Learning Campus.
