Due to continued confirmed cases among bus drivers and monitors, as well as confirmed cases at Bangor High School, Fairmount School, Fruit Street School, and Mary Snow School, all Bangor Schools will remain in remote learning from today, January 25, through Friday, January 29. We hope to return to in person learning on Monday, February 1. Wednesday, January 27 will remain a half day of student instruction. At this time, all close contacts have been contacted. I will keep you updated should information change.
I would like to genuinely thank all the parents/guardians who were willing to help with transportation, as well as those who provided me with input and perspective. This was a difficult decision, but it is my hope that this remote time will minimize the spread of the virus.
Everyone should monitor yourself and your child for signs and symptoms. Call a health care provider if symptoms start. It is important that you call a healthcare facility before you show up in person. Stay home if you are sick.
Signs and symptoms include:
• fever or chills
• shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• muscle or body aches
• new loss of taste or smell
• sore throat
• congestion or runny nose
• nausea or vomiting
If you have any questions, please contact a representative at your child’s school.
Please stay safe and be well.
