Superintendent's Message


Greetings from Mrs. McLean - April 2020


Greetings, RSU # 71 Communities,    📢 

I hope this update finds you all well. The finches at the bird feeder are wearing bright yellow today, and the bluebells and crocuses are popping up in the yard. They are heartening reminders that spring is coming again.

In this week's update letter from me you can read about RSU #71's efforts at providing meals for our community and read information on the upcoming school vacation, remote learning, and other items.
