Upcoming Parent Forums

Superintendent Porter will hold two parent forums to answer questions regarding the MSAD #51 Pandemic Response Plan (anticipated approval at the August 3 Board meeting).  Each session will begin with a brief presentation by Superintendent Porter, followed by a question and answer period.

If you have questions regarding the approved plan (after approval, we will email the full plan to all families on August 4), please RSVP to one of the two sessions:

Thursday, August 6 at 5:30 PM - RSVP to Fran Prentice at fprentice@msad51.org with the subject line of Parent Forum, August 6
Tuesday, August 11 at 8:30 AM - RSVP to Fran Prentice at fprentice@msad51.org with the subject line of Parent Forum, August 11

Space is limited, but we will do our best to get everyone in who wishes to ask a question.  Prior to the session, you will receive a link to the meeting if you RSVP.

If you simply wish to watch one (or both) of these sessions, please subscribe to the MSAD #51 YouTube Live Channel by clicking HERE.  Via our YouTube Channel, you may watch the session while it's happening or at your leisure.
