High School & SRTC Move to Remote Learning

Superintendent of Schools Matt Nelson announced on Friday, September 18, that Sanford High School and the Sanford Regional Technical Center will move to fully remote instruction beginning Monday, September 21.

An individual associated with the High School recently tested positive for Covid-19, and there is a possibility that other staff or students may have been exposed. Superintendent Nelson wrote that he is also concerned about an increased level of risk in Sanford, with the community spread of the virus that is presently occurring.

Sanford Middle School students are currently learning remotely while construction at that facility is being completed, with a scheduled return to in-person classes on Monday, September 28. Parents of middle schoolers should look for an update in case that date is pushed back.

Students in grades K-4 will continue to attend classes two days a week under their hybrid learning model. Pre-K will continue to operate as normal.

Maine CDC or a school representative will contact you directly if you are identified as a close contact of someone who tested positive. Close contacts will be asked to quarantine for 14 days from last exposure to the positive individual. A negative test result does not get an individual out of quarantine.

Questions for the school can be directed to your building administrator.  For general COVID-19 questions, dial 211 (or 1-866-811-5695). You can also text your ZIP code to 898-211 or email info@211maine.org. Call a health care provider for questions about your symptoms.
