Attention Parents of Seventh and Eighth Graders!

This outdoor program, with a focus on canoeing,  is a new initiative in the midcoast and the director is asking for some Belfast students to participate. It is a perfect fit for kids who love to be active and outside and who are not involved in traditional sports. There are scholarships available. If several parents are interested in having their children participate, carpooling can be coordinated. Contact Ms. Davis, School Counselor, as soon as possible, if you are interested. edavis@rsu71.org

In order to make up two storm days, our school board has decided that the two remaining early release days will become full student days (4/12, 5/18) and the remaining professional development day (4/13) will become a full student day. Barring any more storm days, the final student day, at this point in time will be Wednesday, 6/20.
