Pat Hopkins, Superintendent of Schools for MSAD 11: One of our graduates, Chase Fossett, recently passed away in a tragic car accident. A vigil has been organized by friends of the family for this Sunday, December 18 at 5 pm on Hoch Field. They have also arranged for a fireworks display to take place on the GAHS Field Hockey Field beginning around 6 pm. Knowing how impactful the noise from fireworks can be for pets, children, the elderly and others, I wanted us to get the word out to help make certain local residents know to take any precautions they believe necessary to ensure the safety of their pets and their entire family. Thank you for your assistance. Best, Pat Hopkins Superintendent of Schools
Pat Hopkins, Superintendent of Schools for MSAD 11: No school in MSAD 11 tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 16th. With student absences ranging between 15 - 26% and district-wide staff absences around 20% coupled with the weather pattern, it makes it difficult to safely run our schools and to provide meaningful instruction. I appreciate your understanding. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope the early notification is helpful for planning purposes. I hope the extra day will help students and staff get the rest needed to be able to return to school on Monday. Enjoy the snow and Happy Holidays.

Superintendent Patricia Hopkins update from Gardiner Area High School: bit.ly/3gayEbE
This is Pat Hopkins, MSAD 11 Superintendent of Schools with an update on the situation at the Gardiner Area High School. The high school has been thoroughly searched and cleared law enforcement. As a result, the lockdown has been lifted. Today’s threat was received by dispatch via a phone call concerning multiple school districts around the state. Multiple law enforcement agencies were on site supporting us and ensuring the safety of all students and staff. Parents who wish to pick up their students to take them home for the day may do so by checking them out of the main office. I commend students and staff for following our emergency plan and doing what they were supposed to do in these type of situations. As additional information presents itself, I will provide all of you with an update, including next steps.
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.
