Greetings from RSU #24,
Well, the fall season is just around the corner. Hard to believe that we are already seeing the change in colors starting in some of our communities!
Our schools have been open for several weeks now and our students and staff have gotten into the routine of the school day. By all accounts, we have had a much smoother start to the school year compared to last year. A bit of normalcy has returned!
We only have a few items left to be completed with the new building project. The work continues on our ball fields and likely will for the next couple of months. At this point, it looks like we might get access to the ball fields during the 2024-2025 school year. The other major item to complete is the domestic water cistern project. This project will provide the necessary backup support to our domestic water use in the building. The Department of Education, our architect, the general contractor, and the RSU continue to work out the details of this part of the project. The remaining cistern project is estimated to take roughly four months and with the winter weather, this may have to be extended. I am happy to report that the new batting cage in the high school gym and the scoreboards in the middle school gym have been installed.
I would like to welcome Mary Cowperthwaite to the Regional School Unit #24 Board of Directors. Mrs. Cowperthwaite represents the town of Gouldsboro and will fill out the remaining term of the former Gouldsboro Rep. She will serve on the Budget and Finance Committee and the Policy Committee.
Our fall sports season is in full swing! Best of luck to all of our fall athletes and our coaches as they work their way through the schedule.
Thank you for your continued support of our schools. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at [email protected].
