Good afternoon, Thank you for all of your patience and understanding as we navigated a hot day in the district. We are anticipating a second school day tomorrow that will have high temperatures and a high heat index. Each of our facilities will be running all of the air handling systems overnight to bring in as much fresh air as possible. We anticipate that this will help to lower the temperatures enough so that we can hold a half day of school tomorrow. RSU 14 students will be dismissed early tomorrow. Middle and High School students will be dismissed at 11:00. Elementary students will be dismissed at 12:00. Due to the early dismissal, the mobile meals van for Raymond Elementary pick up will be moved to a different location. Meals can be picked up in the Jordan Small Parking Lot. Thankfully, this appears to be the end of high temperatures that will impact school schedules. Cooler temperatures are on the horizon for Wednesday. Chris Howell Superintendent of Schools
