COVID-19  Update January 1, 2021

January 1, 2021

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

I am writing to inform you of a positive case of COVID-19 at Lawrence High School that was reported to me today.  School Nurse Deanna Turlo was in contact with the Maine DOE, and I have notified the Maine CDC. In addition to the individual testing positive, this case involves four staff members and sixteen students at the high school and one staff member at Clinton Elementary School. Principal Bowers and Nurse Turlo notified those individuals today. We are informing the school community for your awareness, and to clarify information we have at this time for those associated with Lawrence High School. Fortunately, the holiday break has provided time for the quarantine period to have minimal impact on the schools due to the closure of our buildings.

Again, we appreciate families and staff immediately informing the school when an individual receives notification of a positive result. Please continue to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19, call a health care provider if symptoms start, and stay home if you are sick. 

We look forward to welcoming students and staff back to our schools on Monday, January 4 as we begin 2021. We are hopeful that the new year brings good health to all and an especially positive, successful school experience for our students.

Stay safe and be well.

Roberta Hersom

Superintendent of Schools
