The RSU 54/MSAD 54 superintendent Jon Moody, in a letter to parents, and on the district’s website, says schools will be closed for the remainder of the week.
This morning, following an email to staff, we were alerted to the fact that several of our students or staff members may have had contact with individuals from the Community (Cornville) Regional Charter
Schools who have tested positive for Covid-19. Over the course of the day today, we have learned that one of our high school students, who hasn’t been in school since last Thursday, has tested positive.
At this time Maine CDC has not yet recommended we close school; however, given the close proximity with our students and the students of the Regional Charter School, we feel taking this preventative
measure is appropriate. The significant number of potential exposures to the likely outbreak at the Charter School does give us concern; we believe it is necessary to take short term precautions to
investigate potential exposures. As a result of the potential exposures, and understanding that contact tracing through Maine CDC takes time, we’ve decided that as a precautionary measure we
will close all MSAD 54 schools for the remainder of this week.
