RSU 24 School Construction Project ~ Community Input Night

Dear Cave Hill Parents and Community Members,
The classroom has gone through some major changes over the years and the pace of that change is accelerating all the time.
With that in mind, RSU 24 is looking to the future and the door is open for input regarding the possibilities for our construction project on the site of Sumner Memorial High School.
Educators and middle level students have begun sharing their ideas for the future with the goal of providing the best education possible in a newly designed facility.
Now we need to hear from you! The district is hosting parent/community nights for public input at each RSU school. We hope you can join us on Monday, December 11th at Cave Hill School at 6:00 p.m. where we will provide the latest information and gather your thoughts and feedback.
Your input will be used to guide future decisions about the buildings in the district and we look forward to hearing from parents and community members!

If you can joins us, please kindly return the bottom portion of this page to school with your child or call the school at 565-3638 and RSVP. This will help us plan for enough space and materials.

A new report by Attendance Works and the Everyone Graduates Center provides a national and state analysis of how many schools face these high levels of chronic absence, and shares Portraits of initiatives that show how chronic absence can be turned around, even when it reaches high levels in a school, district or particular student population.

MaineCare Information (Click here for the flyer)

Thousands still qualify for MaineCare but are uninsured. Did you know more than half of your uninsured students are likely to be eligible for free or low cost health coverage? The Connecting Kids to Coverage Project helps families with the MaineCare application process - free of charge. This project is funded by the federal government and includes local partners at non-profit organizations around the state.

With MaineCare, kids can get well-child visits, dental exams, prescriptions, vaccinations, vision tests, some school-based services, and other medical care. And as you well know, healthy kids do better in school.

If you have any questions about the project or the process, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Kids deserve a healthy start.
