School Calendar Update

Dear Students, Staff, Parents, and Community Members

     First, let me take a moment to thank all of you for assisting us during these difficult times. Our students continue to reap the benefits from your support that is allowing us to be in school for in person learning. The MSAD 13 School Board voted on Nov 9th to add 3 additional ½ day workshops, Dec 8, Feb 2, and Apr 6th. Students will be dismissed early on these days. This time will allow teachers to prepare lessons for their students.

     Each day continues to be a struggle as we have no substitutes to provide coverage when our staff are ill or need to attend to family matters. Our staff has and continues to provide coverage for each other, giving up their preparation time, working in other departments, working additional hours, etc. This is why the board decided to add the three ½ day workshops. We recognize this can and does create a hardship for families but in order to keep school open 5 days per week our staff needs this additional preparation time. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

     I also want to take this opportunity to remind everyone that masks are required on and in all school transportation vehicles. Please provide your child with a mask for the ride to and from school. By providing your child with a mask you are saving the district money.

Happy Thanksgiving,


Sandra MacArthur

School Lead Water Testing Results

Staff, Students, Parents, and Community Members

    Survey Results

     Beginning in October 2021 every school in Maine is required to test their drinking and cooking water for lead. The state of Maine pays for the testing. MSAD 13 collected their water samples on October 19, 2021 and received their results on Oct 22, 2021.  Today, October 25, 2021 we are sharing those results with staff, students, parents, and community members.

    The district collected the required 4 samples at Moscow Elementary School and 8 samples at Upper Kennebec Valley Jr/Sr High School. The samples tested are within the limits that do not require remediation. Please remember the samples are collected after the water has not been used for at least 12 hours. The testing results are posted on the district’s website https://www.sad13.org

    If you have any questions please contact Sandra MacArthur at 672-5502 or Sandra.macarthur@sad13.org
