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.
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.
Our Homecoming week dominance continues as the Field Hockey team chalked up a win last night to continue our undefeated streak on the week. We hope to see everyone out at tonight’s Homecoming Football game as our boys look to continue the success with a huge group of fans cheering them on.
Some Homecoming Highlights:
Students: If you have video footage of any of the other events please do send them to Mrs. George or Myself.
Points Update: (thank you to Ryan McCarthy for catching a one point mistake between the sophomores and freshmen!)
We hope to see everyone out in force in their Red, White, and Blue today!
