Superintendent's Welcome!

 
Greetings from RSU #24,
 
I hope this monthly update finds each of you enjoying summer with warm temperatures and lots of sunshine.  We could use a couple of days of rain as the plants and grass are in need of it!
 
We are excited that we will be opening the Charles M. Sumner Learning Campus to our students in the coming weeks.  As many of you may know, we are working with the various stakeholders (Department of Education, CHA-Architect and others) to address water issues at the school.  Even with these water issues, we believe that our students and staff will be entering a safe, state of the art learning environment that will serve our communities for many years to come.  We do not expect to do a formal grand opening of the school until we have rectified the water issues but stay tuned as we will work to find ways to get our parents and community in the building.  Should we run into additional obstacles that delay our entry, we will communicate this as soon as possible.
 
The start of the 2022-2023 school year is on the horizon.  We will have a strategic transition back into school with the changes (four PK-5 schools and the new school) that are in front of us.  Our students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade will begin on Tuesday, September 6th.  Our students in pre-k to grade eight will go to school on Wednesday, September 7th, and all students will attend on Thursday, September 8th.  If you haven't received it already, each school will send parents/students the annual start-up information in the coming days. 
 
Thank you for your continued support of our schools.
 
Sincerely,

Michael Eastman, Superintendent
