Good afternoon. Today, the MSAD11 notification system will be tested. Text messages, phone calls, and emails will be sent to parent/guardians and staff in all buildings. Please contact the office in your child's school to request phone number and/or email address changes. If you do not have any children in MSAD11, call the central office at (207)582-5346 ext. 1211 to have your information removed.
All phone issues have been repaired, and the system is fully functioning. Thank you for your patience.
MSAD11 is having issues with the phone system in some of our schools, the bus garage, and the central office. If your call is not answered, please leave a detailed voicemail message. An additional notice will be sent when the trouble has been repaired.
Common Sense Media, (commonsensemedia.org), is a website for parents and caregivers to get information on all forms of media to help guide families in what children may be watching or exposed to. There’s a “Parent Tips and FAQs” tab and from there you can choose to search “By Age,” “By Topic,” “By Platform,” and “What’s New.” We urge all parents and caregivers to pay attention to what your children are accessing through their phones, tablets, TV, and streaming sites like Netflix, YouTube, etc.
Special request from the School Nutrition Department - Please choose healthy foods, leaving candy at home. https://bit.ly/3WmtjOS
