COVID-19 Update January 22, 2021

January 22, 2021

Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Staff, 

It has come to our attention that an individual at Lawrence High School has tested positive for COVID-19. Principal Bowers and Nurse Turlo contacted the Maine DOE’s Nurse Consultant Emily Poland, and I contacted the Maine CDC. Three staff members and twenty students were identified as close contacts.  We are informing the school community for your awareness, and for those associated with Lawrence High School.

As confirmed cases continue to rise in Maine, it is important that we remain vigilant in our schools with adherence to physical distancing, mask wearing, hand hygiene, and careful self-monitoring of our own health. 

The safety of students and staff remains our priority, and our ability to remain open is reliant on the good health of all.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Stay safe and be well.

Roberta Hersom

Superintendent of Schools
