Good morning – this is Pat Hopkins, MSAD 11 Superintendent of Schools. It is my understanding that a robo call recently went out to some parents and staff indicating that the Gardiner Area High School is closed today and that students will be transported home. That message did not come from MSAD 11. Gardiner Area High School is open for school today. Students are not being transported home. We apologize for the confusion that call has caused and we will be looking into how this happened. Again GAHS is open for school today. Have a great day.
