Dear Families of Telstar,

The Maine CDC, along with the Maine Department of Education has updated their guidance for schools and there is an important update that I would like to let you know about.

Effective Monday, May 24th, all MSAD #44 schools will update their protocols to match the Maine DOE School Guidance that was revised on 5/14/21. Beginning Monday, as stated in the guidance, masks and physical distancing will not be required for outdoor classes. This includes both recess and physical education classes. 

If you would like your child to continue wearing a mask outdoors, feel free to contact the offices, or their RAP/Satellite teacher to share your request.

When inside the building we will continue to wear masks, physical distancing ourselves and following our cleaning and disinfecting procedures that were established at the beginning of the year. 

Thank you for everything to help us get to this point in the year and to end with as much positive and celebration as we work to honor the hard work and dedication of everyone this school year!

Mark C. Kenney
