Our guidelines for MSAD #11, which are provided by our Medical Director, Abigail Hoke MD, are: 1. Temp > 100F 2. Vomiting 8 hours prior to school 3. Diarrhea 8 hours prior to school If any of these criteria are met, the student must stay home until symptom-free for 24 hours. Thank you for your help in keeping our school a healthy place to learn."

From our Middle and High School Athletic Director - Mr. Stubbert: I am very pleased to announce that the proposal I made to the school board to allow 6th graders to participate on our middle school teams and create a Varsity and Junior Varsity team passed unanimously. I think this is very exciting as Gardiner athletics move forward. The JV and Varsity format will begin this fall. Unfortunately we will not be adding any teams this year because they were not built into the budget so if a sport only has one team, it will only have one team and that will be called the varsity team. 6th, 7th, and 8th graders will be allowed to try out for that team and it will be the coaches decision on who he/she decides to keep.
