Yarmouth Schools will return to normal operations, with activities resuming on Saturday morning and schools reopening on Monday morning. Superintendent Dolloff has sent a more extensive message by email to all district contacts.
Schools in Yarmouth will remain closed on Friday, October 27. Offices will also be closed, and no student activities will be held. Superintendent Dolloff will be providing a more extensive update to all staff and families later today.
Yarmouth Schools will be closed today - Thursday, October 26 - due to the shelter-in-place and ongoing search for a person of interest in last evening's tragedy in Lewiston that impacts many of our staff and families. All offices will be closed as we urge folks to remain off the roads as much as possible. Information on resources for supporting students and adults in the face of this tragedy will be shared by email later this morning.
Good evening - Please know that Yarmouth Schools are aware of the horrific situation in Lewiston and we are in communication with law enforcement. We will continue to monitor the situation and will make the best decisions we can regarding schools and the support we can provide for students and families in the coming days. We will communicate more early tomorrow morning.
Sam Bessey and Ian Friedel, 7th graders, created a plaque on the 3D printer for a library bookshelf created by 8th-grader Jasper Keller. Ian and Sam then installed the plaque themselves. Such a fun community creation!
Welcome to Bus Safety Week in the Yarmouth Schools, culminating with Bus Driver Appreciation Day on Friday!
