Greetings from RSU #24,
Well, the start of the school year has come and gone and we can certainly feel the difference in the air as the temperatures and humidity are getting more comfortable. The start of the school year was seamless as the feeling in the building was like students and staff never left for the summer.
We continue to do the detail work involved with the building project. Our architect is working diligently with us to refine the interior drawings, conduct the necessary studies, and to work through the final specs to come up with a formal design that can be presented for bid. This is a bit of a tedious process but a necessary one that includes input and approval from the Building Committee. The Building Committee meetings are open to the public and your input is welcome at those meetings as well. Our next meeting is/was September 24 (depending on when you read this) and all meetings are posted on our website and specific details of the project can be found by clicking on the New Building Project Link.
Our schools are working through the fire drill and emergency situation procedures as we are doing our best to make our schools as safe as possible. By RSU #24 Board policy, we have a set number of drills to conduct throughout the school year. As a practice, we do not announce the drills to our parents or community but I want to assure you that we take this part of our work very serious.
We are still in the need of a couple of teachers at Sumner High School and a part-time ed tech at the Cave Hill School. At Sumner, one of our Technology (Industrial Arts) positions is open, as is a position in the Special Education program. Should you be interested or know someone who might interested in one of those positions, please get in touch with Janet Jordan from Human Resources at 422-2017.
Thank you for your continued support of our schools. As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I can be reached at email@example.com or 422-2017.
Michael Eastman, Superintendent
Regional School Unit #24
