Good Evening, I hope everyone in Cape Elizabeth had a wonderful summer. I am sorry for the delay but here are the Bus stops and times for the 2021-2022 school year. Please remember a mask is required while riding the bus. The drivers will provide hand sanitizer as well as a mask if one is needed. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. My team and I look forward to transporting you to and from school. We will have a larger number of students riding this year so please follow the rules of the school bus. Thank you -- Christopher M Storer Link to the bus routes: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1O59HpHKMWCQaj-Tvvu9N7y549XIe6lbn/view?usp=sharing
Dear Parents/Guardians, we hope you are having a great week. We are sending you links to the District Planning Committee meetings held on 8/4 and 8/12 so you can review the discussion around Covid-19 mitigation strategies for the upcoming school year. The recommendations: 1) Universal masking for anyone in a school building no matter vaccination status and; 2) Pooled testing offered to all students and staff on a voluntary basis. These recommendations will be considered and voted upon by the School Board on 8/16 at 6:30 pm at the Town Hall. If you attend, please note that masks are now required in all town buildings. Thanks again for your support. ~ Superintendent Record Click here for the link to the recorded meeting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExMtbKor5lY
