COVID-19 Update April 12, 2021

April 12, 2021

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

I am writing to inform you of two positive cases of COVID-19 at Clinton Elementary School, one case at Benton Elementary School, and one case at Lawrence High School.  The MDOE and the Maine CDC have been notified.  No close contacts associated with any of the three schools are identified as all four individuals have not been present during the infectious period.

We are notifying the community in an effort to keep those associated with Clinton, Benton and Lawrence informed and to clarify the information we have at this time.  We are experiencing a rise in positive cases, as are our surrounding communities. Please continue to monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19, call a health care provider if symptoms start, and stay home if you are sick. 

As always, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Thank you for your cooperation and continued vigilance. As a reminder, schools will close beginning April 16 and reopen on April 26— I hope that all students and staff enjoy the Spring Break.

Stay safe and be well.

Roberta Hersom

Superintendent of Schools
