For Valley Unified School Reintegration Information go to www.vuesc.org
Valley Unified is dedicated to keeping our students and families updated on our school reintegration process. We will therefore provide a weekly update as we bring students back to in-classroom learning, and manage remote learning needs at the same time. Each weekly update will focus on the updates and information specific to health and wellness of our students and staff, in addition to new information we receive from the Department of Education.
We appreciate all the help and support each of you have extended to us during this transition. Valley Unified Schools are blessed to be able to return to school safely while there is no/low community spread of COVID-19.
Wisdom Middle/High School Open House
The Valley Unified Regional Education Center has created four planning teams to develop a road map and timeline for a safe and efficient return to school for students and staff from MSAD #27, MSAD #33, and the Madawaska School Department for the 2020-2021 school year.
Each planning team will consider multiple possibilities and formats in order to develop a flexible, fluid plan that can be quickly adjusted to ensure our schools, students, staff, families, and communities remain safe and that teaching and learning continue as local, regional, and state developments take place relative to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Guidance from the Governor's office, the Maine Department of Education, and the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention will guide our progress through each phase of the plan.
On-going communication with health and safety professionals, school staff, students, parents, families, and community members will be a critical part of the on-going planning process.
Information and notifications concerning each phase of the plan will be sent through SwiftReach and will appear here, on the Valley Unified Facebook page, and on both school and school unit websites and social media pages as steps are finalized.
