When the new meal requirements came out for the National School Lunch Program, a teacher asked me, “What are we going to do for the Thanksgiving meal?  Are we still going to be able to serve all of the foods we’re used to?”  The answer to that is “Yes! Most definitely.”  Many of our traditional Thanksgiving foods such as fruits and vegetables can be made into healthier options and brought into school meals at age appropriate serving sizes.  The best part?  There’s no limit on the amount of fruits and vegetables students take!

Here are our menus:

Here are some great tips to keep your holiday meals flavorful and healthier:

Supports Today at MHS

Good morning,

We wanted to make our students, parents, and community aware of supports that are in place at MHS today and through the evening (Through 7:00 PM).

Mental Health professionals from Maine General (Health Reach) and the American Red Cross will be on hand in our Library through 7:00PM this evening for those in need of support.  We have volunteers from our business office staffing our school phones in the main office and our counselors and administrators are on call to provide assistance.  Please encourage anyone you know who feels like they want to talk to someone, or just wants a safe place to be, to reach out to us at the High School.

Thank you to the area schools and mental health agencies who have provided tremendous assistance to us over the past three weeks.  Thank you to the community for their outpouring of support.  Together we have been their for our kids (and they have been there for us…).

Please reach out to the High School should you need anything:  207-465-7381.

News Media: Help Us Help Our Students

MEDIA:  We are aware that students and staff members have been contacted personally in an attempt to gain interviews.  We respectfully ask that all members of the media conduct any interviews off school property as the school must be a safe place for our students and staff as we go through this difficult time.  The school must be a place where they feel supported and are able to be provided counseling as appropriate.

We do hope that the media will continue to be respectful of our students, staff and of our families as we work to provide support for those in need.

Thank you,

Jon Moody

Principal

Support For Students & Community Members

We will be opening up the High School tomorrow, Monday October 13th, to provide support for our students following the recent tragedies to our school community.

School administrators and personnel from our Messalonskee and China schools will be on site from 8:00 Am – 6:00 PM answering phones and assisting those in need.  Mental health professionals have been arranged to support students from 9:00AM – 12:00PM and again from 3:00PM – 6:00PM.

Reverend Effie McClean, of the Oakland-Sidney United Methodist Church, with the support of local churches, has arranged to provide non-denominational community assistance at the church (14 West School Street, Oakland) for adults and community members who wish to access support during this difficult time.  Reverend McClean can be reached at 465-5259 with questions.

In consultation with mental health professionals, we have decided to, as much as possible, have students continue their regular routine upon returning to school on Tuesday.  We have reached out to area schools and agencies and will have additional personnel on site to support our students and staff.  If you have any information about any students in need, please reach out to us at school tomorrow.    Should you need immediate assistance or want someone to talk to outside of our school hours, the Maine Crisis Hotline (1-888-568-1112) is a great resource.

Thank you,

Jon Moody
