Islesboro Central closes until April 27

Mar 23, 2020

Islesboro — Islesboro Central School will be closed to classes until April 27, Head of School Charles Hamm notified parents Sunday.

"We will reassess the situation at that time," Hamm said in his announcement. The Kinnicutt Center will also remain closed until further notice.

The school building itself is undergoing a deep clean, Hamm said, and lunches continue to be prepared and delivered to school-age children living on the island.

Those who would like meals delivered to their children may contact Melissa Burns at mburns@icspathways.org. Lunches are free to all school-age children.

"Teachers and counselors continue expanding their online capabilities," Hamm said. "Students have adapted quickly to this new style of learning. While online learning is not comparable to classroom education, it is the best option available. Feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher, counselor, or me with any concerns, suggestions, or questions."

Hamm asked that everyone practice social distancing and limit contact with people outside their immediate families. "Recent cases show that school-age children are more susceptible to complicated symptoms than previously believed," he said. "Children can also pass the virus while showing no symptoms themselves. Vigilance is our best defense."
