RE: RSU 26 Update
RSU 26 schools, in coordination with other area school districts, will continue with remote learning days through at least April 17th. April vacation will still be observed during the week of April 20-24. The tentative date for return to school is April 27th; however, this date is subject to change as the situation develops.
All buildings are now closed to the public. Buildings will only be staffed with essential personnel moving forward, as most staff have transitioned to working remotely. Please call or email your child’s school or the central office if you have a need. School Office Phone Numbers: Asa Adams: 866-2151, Orono Middle School: 866-2350, Orono High School: 866-4916, Superintendent’s Office: 866-7110.
Our food service staff is continuing to work to provide ongoing breakfast and lunches for students. Beyond pick-up here at our school (only at Asa Adams beginning next week), we are pleased to begin offering an ongoing delivery system, as well as a remote pickup site at the American Legion Building here in Orono. Please review the detailed letter below for more information about these options. These meal options are available at no cost to all students during this time.
Please know that we understand these are trying times. We are trying to support our community by continuing to provide remote learning and food support for students during this difficult time. Please reach out to us if you have a need, question or concern. We are working diligently to act in the best interest of our entire school community and appreciate the understanding and feedback you are extending to us as we figure all of this out…one step at a time.
