Principal’s Report

Principal’s Report

February 2017

 

A researcher and three students from the University of New Hampshire met with Quimby students Friday Feb. 3, 2017.  They worked to begin a specially designed health curriculum as part of a larger study.

 

Varsity basketball seasons have concluded and both teams are likely to make tournaments.  Varsity Girls ended with a record of ​​4-14 and possibly 7th place, while varsity boys ended 11-7 and possibly 3rd in Southern D.

Tournament games would be Saturday, February 18, 2017 at 8:30am for the boys and the girls on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 10:00am .  JV boys finished with a record of 1-3.

 

Middle school basketball teams have also finished their regular season with the girls’ team record of  9-6 and boys’ team at  12-3.   Both teams will play in the Pine Tree Tournament Friday,February,10 at 3:30 (girls)  and 4:45 (boys) at Madison.

 

Bob Stewart of Maine College Circle visited Quimby and Moscow to speak with students about college interests.

 

Quimby concert went very well with both Middle School and High School students performing. 

 

Grades 7-12 attended Maine Science Exhibit of dinosaurs.  The presentation included the most recent research on the reptilian scales to feathers thinking.  Students then went to the University of Southern Maine in Portland for lunch.

 

Lori Conway organized a series of Coffee House meetings for parents and interested community members to discuss implications of the school shift to Proficiency Based Education (standards).  The first was held January 19 at Thompsons Restaurant and we had nine parents including two school board members attend.  Folks enjoyed pizza, coffee, soda and brownies as we talked about parent concerns and our adjustment to standards, especially reporting- changes in the grade card.    The next Coffee House will be held February 16, again at 6:00pm with a pizza buffet, coffee and a dessert.  Our topic will again feature parent and community concerns as well as our implementation of the Guiding Principles.  The Coffee House is open to everyone, and if folks do not have a sitter they are encouraged to bring them and join the buffet as we discuss.  The Coffee House series will be four or five dates and is possible through a Gear-Up grant.

 

All schools have completed NWEA testing for Winter.  We use this data to record student progress and to identify students who may need additional help with reading, math, science, or writing.

 

We are preparing for the next Maine State Test  which will be in April and May.  High school students will take the SAT in May as well.

 

Respectfully submitted,

 

Julie Richard

Health Rule Change Notice

The Maine Department of Health and Human Services and Department of Education revised the Maine School Immunization Requirements rule on December 20, 2016. The changes further align Maine’s immunization rules with current national recommendations to better protect the health of all Maine people. The following two changes were made:

 

1.      Effective immediately, the exclusion period for varicella disease (chicken pox) has increased from 16 days to 21 days. This means that any child who has not provided proof of immunization or history of disease will be unable to attend school or any school related activity for 21 days. This time period will be extended if any further chicken pox cases occur after the first. The law requires a 21 day exclusion period after the LAST case.

 

2.      Effective for the 2017-2018 school year, all students entering, advancing, or transferring into seventh (7th) grade will need to receive one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) vaccine before attendance is allowed. This requirement is for 7th grade students only; grades 8-12 are not included in this rule change.

 

You can find a link to the rule (Chapter 126 / 261) here:

http://www.maine.gov/doe/rule/changes/index.html

 

Pertussis (whooping cough) is a very contagious respiratory disease that can be severe and last for months. The immunity received from either early childhood immunization or pertussis disease wears off over time, leaving older students and adults susceptible to pertussis. Immunization with Tdap can protect students, schools and communities against whooping cough.

 

We are providing you with this information now so that you have ample time to schedule an appointment prior to the first day of the 2017-2018 school year.

 

Attached please find the Frequently Asked Questions for more information on this new school immunization requirement.
