Good evening, This message is intended to provide the school community reassurance that the Crisis Team recognizes that there are likely impacts to some members of our school community from the tragic events of last evening. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families. RSU 3 is fortunate to have Deputy Tozier as our school resource officer who has provided factual information about the situation throughout the day. If the situation changes at any time the Crisis Team will certainly respond appropriately. Based on information we have currently through Waldo County EMA and Waldo County there is no credible threat to the school communities of RSU 3. However, we will always respect decisions made by families to act in the best interest of their children. We understand that the school community is on high alert and that can be accompanied by feelings of uncertainty. We respect and understand this as a normal reaction to a crisis. The Crisis Team was established to provide a level of confidence and safety to the school community during unsettling events. It is our goal to provide the school community a response that accounts for the facts and credibility of the situation presented. Our counseling professionals on the Crisis Team have developed the following list of resources from the National Child Traumatic Stress Network. These are additional resources in addition to the care and safety you provide to your children.

Good afternoon MVHS community, Please be advised that we have decided to push back our academic progress reports by one week. Originally, they had been planned to go out next week, but we have decided to send them out the following week. We feel this will provide more time for students to complete work that will give an accurate view of their current progress. Please don't hesitate to direct questions to me. Thanks so much, Principal Gray
