Pooled Testing

This year, Winslow Public Schools is adding “pooled testing” to our COVID-19 prevention measures for our 4year-old program thru grade 12. Pooled testing means that students and staff in a classroom will have a COVID-19 test once a week. Students participating in pooled testing will not need to quarantine from school if they are considered close contacts of a a school-related positive case, as long as they do not have symptoms. Pooled testing is voluntary, and all testing is free. Parent/guardian must sign a consent for their child to participate. Parent/Guardian consent and family education is linked below and also available on the Winslow Public Schools websites:

Pooled Testing Webinar for families (1hr)

Online Consent for Pooled Testing under age 18

Online Consent for Pooled Testing over age 18

Access Code needed to complete online consent: DUOEOV

TO: Superintendents and Assistant Superintendents

FROM: James Boothby, President - Maine School Superintendents Association

Eileen King, Executive Director

DATE: December 29, 2021

RE: Status of SOP

Regional Presidents met with Dr. Shah on December 28th. Dr. Shah listened to concerns regarding the quarantining of healthy students, the amount of time and work involved in identifying close contacts and some other issues that have been challenging for school districts.

Dr. Shah’s team of epidemiologists are currently working on the SOP. Some initial changes to the SOP will be made available to Superintendents by December 30.

Maine CDC embraces the recent US CDC changes related to isolation and quarantine. These changes will take effect when the SOP is finalized.

Operational insight regarding additional changes to the SOP will be sought from a representative group of superintendents in the field. This group will reach out to staff to gather their input as needed.

December 28, 2021 - 10:40am

Hello everyone,

Many of you have by now seen the news regarding the changes released by the National CDC reducing quarantine requirements from ten to five days. While this recommendation from the National CDC is encouraging news for those in quarantine, we need the Maine CDC and DOE to adopt these changes before we can implement them for Winslow Public Schools. We are in hopes that an announcement is made as quickly as possible so we can act accordingly.

We certainly do not want to keep students out of school or their extracurricular activities longer than necessary, however, we must continue to abide by the state guidelines for Maine schools. When the most recent change is adopted by the Maine CDC and DOE we will immediately apply the change and notify those that are currently affected.

Thank you,
Peter Thiboutot

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

This letter is to inform you that on the afternoon of Tuesday, September 28, 2021, we were contacted by the Department of Health and Human Services. The purpose of the call was to inform us that Winslow High School has met the criteria for the confirmed definition of outbreak status. To review, outbreak status is when a school has three or more confirmed cases of COVID-19 from different households within a 14-day period.

When a school is placed in outbreak status, an outbreak investigator contacts the superintendent to discuss the particulars of the situation. The outbreak investigator reviews where the transmissions are occurring and whether we have proper mitigation strategies in place. The investigator has determined that the transmissions are not occurring within the school, which affirms that our return to school plan is providing a safe learning environment for students and staff. Therefore, we can remain open to in-person learning and activities.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone (staff, students and families) for your untiring efforts at making our return to school plan work. Who would have thought a virus could cause such angst and despair? Although opinions may differ regarding our COVID protocol, I believe it's fair to say that we all agree we want our students to be safe and in school for in-person learning and activities.

I ask for your continued patience as we move forward. Please remember that none of us created this virus, yet we are charged with mitigating and managing the mayhem it creates. As always, we are much stronger if we work together.

I ask that you please remain vigilant and adhere to the safety protocols we have in place and have practiced throughout the year.

Thank you,

Peter Thiboutot
Superintendent of Winslow Schools

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

This letter is to inform you that on the afternoon of Friday, September 17, 2021, we were contacted by the Department of Health and Human Services. The purpose of the call was to follow up on the cases we have reported to the Department in the past several days.

As you know from the emails you have received, Winslow Elementary School has recently had several cases where individuals have tested positive for COVID-19. Each case we have is reported to the CDC and they, in turn, provide guidance to our nursing staff. When a school has three or more confirmed cases of COVID-19 from different households within a 14-day period, the school has met the criteria for the confirmed definition of outbreak status.

On Friday, the Maine Department of Education reported that there have been nearly 1400 COVID-19 cases among students and staff and 52 schools who have met the confirmed definition of outbreak status. This data was part of a new dashboard the state released on Friday.

Fortunately, this status is not a requirement to close schools. After consulting with the CDC outbreak specialist, she was very pleased to hear about the mitigation strategies we have in place in Winslow Public Schools to reduce/prevent the spread of COVID-19. Those strategies include the universal wearing of masks while inside and riding the bus, pooled testing, social distancing to the extent possible, disinfecting surfaces, and the frequent washing of hands. In addition, to provide extra support for our nurses to serve our students and staff better, we have hired two additional nurses using our CARES funds to assist during this pandemic. We continue to work closely with the CDC to provide the safest environment possible for our students and staff.

The CDC reminds us, achieving high levels of COVID-19 vaccination among eligible students as well as teachers, staff, and household members is one of the most critical strategies to help schools safely resume full operations.

This is a good reminder to all of us that we are not out of the woods when it comes to COVID-19 and the spread of this disease. I ask that you please remain vigilant and adhere to the safety protocols we have practiced throughout the year. As always, I thank you for your support and understanding. Wishing you all a restful weekend.

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,


This message is to inform you that on the evening of Thursday, August 19, 2021 we were notified that an individual associated with a Winslow athletic team tested positive for COVID-19.


Members of the nursing staff and administrative team contacted the CDC and spoke to the epidemiologist on call on the evening of August 19, 2021. In addition, the nursing staff made additional calls to the CDC on August 20, 2021 in order to exhaust all possibilities in terms of who would be deemed a close contact and required to quarantine. Due to the specifics in this case, we were advised by the CDC to follow the state adopted Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). I have included the specific language that would pertain to this particular situation.


The Maine SOP states the following in regards to after school activities:


After school activities


• Anyone with more than 15 minutes within 24 hours of cumulative exposure within 6 feet or direct physical contact will be considered a close contact.


Evaluation of sports-related activities:


• If a COVID-19 case plays a sport while infectious, close contacts will be considered to be individuals within 6 feet of the infected person for 15 minutes or longer, or who have any direct physical contact with the infected individual.


• Those deemed to be close contacts may not play any sports during their period of quarantine. The exception to this is if they are enrolled in pooled testing or if they are vaccinated and asymptomatic. These school-related close contacts do not need to quarantine from school-related activities.


▪ Relaxed outdoor mask recommendations do not exempt people from quarantine should they be deemed a close contact and are unvaccinated or not participating in pooled testing. Not utilizing social distancing as a mitigation strategy may result in an increased number of identified close contacts and increased transmission. Not utilizing masking as a mitigation strategy may result in increased transmission.


Certainly this is not the news we want to deliver to anyone at this early stage in the year. Unfortunately, this is the reality we are still dealing with and must abide by the CDC recommendations to prevent further outbreaks in our community.


If you are reading this message and you have not been contacted by either the school nurse or a member of the administrative team, then your child is not considered a close contact.


Please know that the safety of our students and staff remains a top priority. Please monitor your child for signs and symptoms of the coronavirus, call a health care provider if symptoms start, and stay home if you are sick.


The Winslow nursing staff may be contacted via email if you have health-related questions pertaining to the school your child attends.

Hello everyone,

I hope this message finds you well and that you are enjoying the warm weather this time of year has to offer.

As we proceed through summer and get closer to opening day I thought it would be helpful to provide you with an update on the opening of schools. I apologize for the length of this message but a lot of what I am about to write has to do with the safety of our students and staff. I ask that you please take the time to read this message.

Throughout the ongoing pandemic, the Winslow School District has operated with the philosophy that the well being of our students and staff is our number one priority. To that end, we have followed the recommendations of the CDC, the DOE, and our local medical consultants. As we approach a new school year, our goal is to safely open schools for all students and staff to in person learning five days a week. I should also add that included in that goal is for the schools to be proactive and to continue with several of our current preventative measures along with additional mitigation strategies such as Pooled Testing which is designed to assist in the early detection of those who may be infected with the virus allowing others to safely remain in school.


Changes in the guidance from the CDC

In the last several days, the CDC has made several changes to their guidance for a safe return to school. Dr. Shah, the DOE and our medical consultant strongly support the recommendations that the CDC has made. You can find the changes using the following link https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated-guidance.html

One of the biggest changes the CDC has strongly recommended calls for universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status. Children should return to full-time in-person learning in the fall with layered prevention strategies in place.

This recommendation does not come as a surprise since the majority of our student body will not have been vaccinated by the opening of school and the science is pointing to inoculation as the best defense against COVID-19 (and now the Delta variant). The CDC findings point to consistent and correct mask use by people who are not vaccinated as especially important indoors and in crowded settings, when physical distancing cannot be maintained. The CDC strongly advocates that mask wearing protects others as well as themselves because they prevent the transmission of water droplets.


What is causing the change in guidance from the CDC?

Unfortunately the Delta variant was introduced to our state and is beginning to raise very serious concerns for those who are compromised and unvaccinated which would be the majority of our students. During the last several weeks, Maine has seen an increase of COVID cases. In a recent meeting Dr. Shah requested to have with Maine Superintendents he reported that COVID cases have increased to an average of 68 per day. The main factor for this increase according to Dr. Shah is the Delta variant attacking unvaccinated individuals. He went on to explain that the Delta variant is different from the other strands of the virus in that it is twice as contagious, far more prominent and may lead to more severe illness. In addition, since the Delta variant is new, there is not enough information on the long term effects for those contracting the virus.


But I am fully vaccinated! Why do I still need to wear a mask inside?

According to our medical experts, people who are fully vaccinated have taken advantage of the best tool they can use to keep themselves and others safe. The medical experts report that fully vaccinated people have tremendous protection against COVID-19 and the Delta variant but it is not full proof. More cases of vaccinated individuals being carriers or getting the Delta Variant are on the rise. Research indicates that the Delta variant is also infecting vaccinated individuals with such high levels of the virus that they are able to pass it on to others. New research published in the U.S. CDC’s weekly scientific journal on Friday stated that roughly 75 percent of the cases in a recent outbreak in the Cape Cod tourist hotspot of Provincetown, Massachusetts, were fully vaccinated. The study also found that vaccinated people infected during the outbreak, which has swelled to more than 900 cases, carried about as much of the virus as those who were unvaccinated. But health officials also pointed out that only a handful of the vaccinated people became so severely ill that they had to be hospitalized, which they said illustrates the effectiveness of the vaccines.


Mitigation efforts

Dr. Shah along with the CDC and our medical experts explained that a layered mitigation approach is the best way to protect our students and staff against the spread of the virus. In addition to our current preventative measures, he strongly encouraged schools to participate in Pooled Testing as a mitigation strategy. Pooled Testing is an early mitigation strategy that will assist with detecting those who are infected. The strategy is most effective when a high number of volunteers (both vaccinated and unvaccinated) agree to participate. The process is very non intrusive. Once a week, students and staff who agree to participate in the program will use a Q-tip and gently swab each nostril. They will then place the swab in a container for testing. That's it. The entire process will take less than three minutes. All students and staff who participate in pooled testing will not need to quarantine if they are a close contact to an individual who test positive. This will save students and staff from having to quarantine and miss valuable in person teaching and learning time. Winslow Public Schools will participate in Pooled Testing. More information about how to have your child participate in Pooled Testing will be sent before the start of school.


Transportation of students.

Will more students be allowed to ride the bus at a time?

The answer is yes. Although we will not fill our buses to capacity, two students to a seat will be allowed. Seating charts will be established so that we can quickly contact trace should an outbreak occur. When it comes to the public transportation of students, the CDC’s order to which we must comply states that whether vaccinated or not, when riding a school bus all individuals aboard the bus (including the driver) must wear a mask.


What about fall sports?

At this point in time, Winslow will offer all fall sports. The wearing of masks during outdoor activities will not be required unless there is danger of close contact for an extended period of time.


Moving Forward

I realize this may not have been the news we wanted to hear as we get closer to the opening of schools. We have had a beautiful summer with little mention of COVID-19. Unfortunately, the Delta variant is throwing the country a curve ball and Winslow, Maine is not immune from the danger this variant is causing. As a school entity we have a responsibility to protect all students especially those who are unable to be vaccinated and are the most vulnerable.

The administrative team along with the school nurses and feedback from our Medical Provider met again this week to discuss the revised CDC recommendations. A unanimous decision was made to recommend to the board that we enact the CDC recommendations as a component of our return to school plan. A reminder that the CDC consists of trained professionals working in the medical field providing guidance based on scientific research. Their guidance is intended to keep your children and our staff safe. This recommendation will be discussed with our Association President and our Return to School Committee which has representation from different stakeholders including students and parents. Parents and guardians wishing to express their thoughts regarding the recommendation in this email are certainly encouraged to do so. Questions specific to the building your child attends may be directed to your building administrator.

In closing, the administrative team along with our school nurses and medical provider strongly feel that our recommendation to the board to enact the most recent CDC recommendations provides the best assurance to all parents, guardians and staff that we are providing the safest possible learning environment for a full return to school for ALL students five days a week.

As always, we will continue to monitor this situation closely and adjust our safety requirements according to the recommendations and guidance provided by the CDC and our medical providers.

Thank you,

Dear Staff, Students and Families,

The Saturday edition of the Morning Sentinel had an article depicting how Maine superintendents were urging state officials to move quickly on COVID-19 guidelines in preparation for the opening of schools in the fall.

The article stated that many schools were concerned that they would still be in some form of hybrid mode if the distancing guidelines were not modified. Clearly, a great deal of pressure is being placed on state officials to consider modifications to the guidelines. However, the advice we are still receiving from state officials is to plan for the opening of our schools with the existing distancing guidelines in place.

Having said the above, the goal for Winslow Public Schools is to provide in-person learning five days a week starting in the fall of 2021, regardless of whether or not the current distancing guidelines are modified.

To accomplish this goal, we are drafting a plan that will require additional space and funding. The Winslow Town Council and the Winslow Town Manager are in support of the schools continuing to use the space available at the old junior high school in order to make this work. Funding to keep the old junior high school in operation for another year, along with the hiring of additional staff, will come from the most recent allocation of ESSER 3 funds. With the space and hiring of additional staff, we are confident in our ability to bring all students back while complying with the distancing guidelines if they remain in effect.

The administrative team, along with the teaching staff, are reviewing the various barriers we need to overcome in order to bring all students back to in-person learning. We will be prepared to share a draft proposal publicly at the May 17 School Board meeting. This proposal will include the rationale for taking this course of action, our preliminary plans (which includes a remote learning alternative for eligible students) and the advantages we see for moving forward at this point in time based on the information we have available to us.

As always, I thank you for your patience and support throughout this process. We will keep you informed as we continue to revise our plan.

Thank you,

Peter Thiboutot
Superintendent of Winslow Schools

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

This letter is to inform you that on the evening of Thursday April 22, 2021, we were informed that an individual associated with Winslow Elementary School tested positive for COVID-19.

Members of the nursing staff and administrative team have completed their contact tracing. Thankfully, no other students or staff members have been deemed close contacts. As always, the nursing staff has reached out to the CDC to report this case.

Citing a "sharp rise" in cases and case rates higher than the rest of the state, the Maine Department of Education (DOE) has moved four counties from "green" to "yellow" in its color-coded system that classifies counties’ relative risk of COVID-19 transmission.

Androscoggin, Kennebec, Oxford, and Somerset counties are now yellow, meaning there's an elevated risk of COVID-19 spread.

The Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and Maine CDC assesses COVID-19 data and trends to make these determinations, which are intended to assist schools as they continue with their plans to deliver instruction and support to students safely.

Androscoggin County "has experienced a sharp rise in cases over the last two weeks, with a new case rate more than double the statewide average."

Similarly, Kennebec, Oxford, and Somerset counties all have new case rates that exceed the state average, and both Oxford and Somerset counties have two-week positivity rates that exceed the state average.

It is important to note that since Winslow Public Schools is already operating in a hybrid model the change to the color coding will not impact Winslow Public Schools. We will continue with our current plan.

I ask that you please continue to be vigilant by taking the necessary precautions such as the wearing of masks, washing hands and maintaining social distancing.

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

This letter is to inform you that on the evening of Tuesday, March 30, 2021, we were informed at 7:00 p.m. that an individual associated with Winslow Jr. High School tested positive for COVID-19. After an hour of contact tracing, we realized that too many grade 7 staff members would be deemed close contacts and we would not be able to provide in person instruction to grade 7 students on Wednesday March 31, 2021 due to a shortage of substitute teachers. Therefore, grade 7 teachers will teach remotely starting Wednesday, March 31. Principal Briggs will work to secure substitute teachers so that in person learning will resume as quickly as possible. Principal Briggs will notify grade 7 parents of the plan for the remainder of the week by the end of the day on Wednesday, March 31, 2021.

Please note: The above information only impacts grade 7 students. All other grades will have in person learning on Wednesday provided it is their scheduled cohort day.

Members of the nursing staff and administrative team have completed their contact tracing and are in the process of contacting the families of the grade 7 students and staff who are considered close contacts and who must quarantine out of caution. As always, the nursing staff has reached out to the CDC to report this case.

Due to the health and privacy rights of the individual who tested positive, we will not be releasing their name. Please know that the safety of our students and staff remains a top priority. Please monitor your child for signs and symptoms of the coronavirus, call a health care provider if symptoms start, and stay home if you are sick.

The Winslow nursing staff may be contacted via email if you have health-related questions pertaining to the school your child attends.

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

This letter is to inform you that on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 30, 2021, we were contacted by the Department of Health and Human Services. The purpose of the call was to follow up on the cases we have reported to the Department in the past several days.

As you know from the emails you have received, Winslow Elementary School has recently had several cases where individuals have tested positive for COVID-19. Each case we have is reported to the CDC and they in turn provide guidance to our nursing staff. When a school has three or more confirmed cases of COVID-19 from different households within a 14-day period, the school has met the criteria for the confirmed definition of outbreak status.

Currently, there are 77 schools in Maine identified with this status. Fortunately, this status is not a requirement to close schools. We continue to work closely with the CDC in order to provide the safest environment possible for our students and staff. In fact, Winslow Public Schools received accolades from our Consulting Physician due to the work we have done to keep our students and staff safe.

This is a good reminder to all of us that we are not out of the woods when it comes to COVID-19 and the spread of this disease. I ask that you please remain vigilant and adhere to the safety protocols we have practiced throughout the year. I am hopeful that with increased vaccinations and our continued diligence, we will experience a return to normal sooner rather than later. The saying, “It takes a village” could not be more appropriate at this time. As always, thank you for your support and understanding.

The Winslow nursing staff may be contacted via email if you have health-related questions pertaining to the school your child attends.

Dear Staff, Students and Families,

The most recent announcement by Governor Mills stating that teachers and child care staff will now be eligible for vaccinations regardless of age was encouraging and well received by the educational community. That announcement, along with a leveling off trend of cases in recent weeks compared to the daily cases peaking at an average of 600 a day in January (Kennebec Journal/Morning Sentinel Friday, March 5, 2021), is certainly the information we all want to hear. It gives all of us hope that we are moving in the right direction to a return to “normal.”

Another positive indicator is the fact that all Maine counties are currently classified as “green”, which does mean that schools may conduct in-person learning if they can meet the established guidelines. The exact definition of a Green Categorization is as follows:

Categorization as “green” suggests that the county has a relatively low risk of COVID-19 spread and that schools may consider in-person instruction, as long as they are able to implement the required health and safety measures. Schools in a “green” county may need to use hybrid instruction models if there is insufficient capacity or other factors (facilities, staffing, geography/transportation, etc.) that may prevent full implementation of the health and safety requirements.

All schools must adhere to the health and safety measures (see Winslow.AOS92.org Health and Safety), which includes the following social distancing component:

2) Physical Distancing and Facilities: ● Adults must maintain 6 feet of distance from others to the extent possible. Maintaining 3 feet of distance is acceptable between and among students when combined with the other measures outlined in this list of safety requirements. ● 6 feet of physical distancing is required for students while eating breakfast and lunch, as students will be unable to wear masks at that time. Groups in any one area, room, or classroom must not exceed the Governor’s gathering size limits.

I bring all of this to your attention as a reminder that at this point in time, we are still required to meet the established Health and Safety Measures, which includes the physical distancing component. The distancing component is a major barrier for us (and the majority of school districts throughout the state) when considering a return to full in-person learning. You may have heard that some schools are able to provide in-person learning on a daily basis. Most are able to do so due to the large number of their students choosing the remote option, thus reducing the number of students for in-person learning which could allow a district to meet the distancing guideline.

We are all anxiously awaiting to see how an increase in vaccinations and a continued decline in the number of COVID 19 cases will impact the distancing requirement and our ability to bring all students back to school.

In anticipation that the above will allow some modifications to the distancing guidelines, Winslow staff members -along with the administrative team- have begun conversations to discuss the numerous questions that need to be answered in order for a safe full return to school for students and staff to become a possibility.

As always, we will keep you informed of the latest developments, which are changing daily. Thank you for your patience, flexibility, understanding, and tremendous support during this unprecedented time.

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a Happy New Year. I hope this email finds you and your families well. This notice is to inform you that an individual at the Mid Maine Tech Center from a community other than Winslow has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19). As a result, two individuals who attend Winslow Schools have been deemed close contacts and must quarantine as a precaution for the required number of days recommended by the CDC Guidelines. It's important to note that this incident was isolated to a small group of individuals thus this incident has a minimal impact on our school community.

As always, members of the nursing staff have been in contact with the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the individuals who were deemed close contacts. Due to the health and privacy rights of the individuals who were deemed close contacts, we will not be releasing their names.

Please note, the individuals who are considered close contacts have already been notified by school nursing personnel or administration.

As we start off the new year, this incident is an opportunity to reinforce the importance of wearing masks, washing hands, and maintaining social distancing.

As always, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Please monitor yourself and/or your student for signs and symptoms of the coronavirus, call a health care provider if symptoms start, and stay home if you are sick.

Members of the nursing staff have been in contact with the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the individual who tested positive. Due to the health and privacy rights of the individual who tested positive, we will not be releasing his/her name.

Please note, the individuals who are considered close contacts have already been notified by school nursing personnel or administration and have been given instructions on how long they will need to quarantine. Thus, If you are reading this email and you have not been contacted by the school nurse or an administrator then you or your child has not been deemed a close contact.

We are notifying the community in an effort to eliminate any misinformation and to take the opportunity to reinforce the importance of wearing masks and face coverings, washing hands, and maintaining social distancing.

Our custodial staff has been notified and will continue to follow the cleaning guidance from the CDC.

As always, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Please monitor yourself and/or your student for signs and symptoms of the coronavirus, call a health care provider if symptoms start, and stay home if you are sick.

The Winslow nursing staff may be contacted via email if you have health related questions pertaining to the school your child attends.

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

I hope this message finds you well. I would like to begin by saying that this is not my usual cryptic message informing you that we have been made aware of a positive COVID-19 case. I’m sure you are as tired of receiving those messages as I am of sending them. Rather, I wanted to take an opportunity to offer some general information regarding the procedures we use once we have knowledge of a potential case.

I will begin by saying that the cryptic messages I have been sending are as frustrating to me as they are to you. It’s natural for people to want more information when they hear that there is a positive COVID-19 case. However, due to health and privacy rights, schools are not allowed to disclose information about the individual who may have tested positive. Doing so would be a direct violation of confidential medical information and subject to penalties of law.

Having said all of that, I hope the following information helps to clarify the process and reduces some anxiety.

When we receive information about a potential COVID-19 case, school personnel consisting of school nurses, administration and the superintendent convene a meeting as quickly as possible. We discuss the information we have received and begin to apply the DOE/CDC guidelines to the information at hand. One of the nurses always contacts the office of the CDC in order to explain our situation and our plan of action. We have always followed the CDC guidelines. In fact, we often (out of an abundance of caution) go beyond the guidelines of the CDC in order to fully ensure the safety of our students and staff.

We have found that each situation can present its own nuances. A typical example might be that an individual is symptomatic and is waiting for the results of a COVID-19 test. We reach out to that individual and ask that they quarantine until they receive their test results. On the other hand, if the individual in the above example reported having symptoms but had yet to test for COVID-19, we would ask that they schedule a test and again quarantine until we have the results.

Once we verify that an individual has tested positive, we begin to contact trace. This involves a great deal of time and effort as we need to find the individuals that had direct contact with the person who tested positive at least 48 hours before they showed symptoms.

Having our schools organized in cohorts and having the cohorts attend every other day greatly assists with the contact tracing process. Individuals who are considered close contacts (someone who was near the infected person for more than 15 minutes) are notified by the school nurse and asked to remain at home for a set number of days.

It’s important to note that the vast majority of the individuals who are asked to quarantine don’t contract the virus. In fact, the transmission of the virus is not occurring in our schools due to our strict mitigation strategies making schools one of the safest places for both students and staff.

Again, due to confidentiality, the names of students and staff who are asked to quarantine are not identified. This can sometimes cause anxiety on the part of some staff members and parents/guardians. Due to confidentiality, staff members and parents/guardians are not told the reason why a student or a staff member is not in class if it's COVID-19 related.

However, if the staff member or student was deemed a direct contact to an individual who tested positive, that staff member or student would immediately be notified by the school nurse and given quarantine instructions to follow.

Said another way, if you are a staff member or parent/guardian of a child in any of our schools and you have not been contacted by the school nurse, it means you or your child have not been identified as a close contact of the person who tested positive. Simply stated, no news from the school nurse is good news.

Earlier in the email I mentioned that the transmissions are not occurring at school due to our strict mitigation measures. Perhaps equally important is the responsible attitude parents/guardians and staff have demonstrated by immediately informing school personnel when an individual receives a positive test result.

Last, but certainly not least, in previous emails I have reminded everyone of the importance of wearing masks, washing hands and social distancing. I ask now more than ever that you continue being vigilant in adhering to these important measures.

With the recent news of the first COVID-19 vaccines being distributed in Maine, there is hope on the horizon that the times we are living through will someday be behind us. Until then, we are far from being out of the woods. Our safety and ability to have our students attend in-person instruction depends on our continued vigilance and adherence to the safety guidelines.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your continued patience and understanding during this very difficult time. I would also like to wish all of you a restful holiday season.

The CDC allows us the option to continue with the 14 day quarantine requirement as is recommended by our Medical Director.

As a reminder, only those students contacted by the school nurse are required to quarantine. All other Winslow Elementary School students may return to in-person learning on their next scheduled cohort day which would either be Tuesday, December 15, 2020 or Wednesday, December 16, 2020.

Our custodial staff has been notified and will continue to follow the cleaning guidance from the CDC.

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

As I am sure you are aware, more and more individuals are testing positive for coronavirus (Covid 19) throughout our state and immediate area. Just this morning, Maine set a new single-day record with 427 additional Covid-19 cases.

Unfortunately, the Winslow School Community is not immune to these latest developments. This letter is to inform you that on the morning of Monday, December 7, 2020, we were informed that an individual associated with Winslow Junior High School tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

Members of the nursing staff have been in contact with the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the individual who tested positive. Members of the nursing staff along with the administrative team have also been in contact with our school Medical Director for additional guidance with this incident. Unfortunately, this incident could designate the junior high with outbreak status. Outbreak status is defined by the Department of Education Standard Operating Procedure as a school having 3 or more confirmed cases from different households within 14 days. We are awaiting confirmation on that status.

We are following the recommendations of the CDC Guidelines by contacting the individuals who had close contact to the person who tested positive. These individuals must quarantine for 14 days beginning on the last day they would have been in contact with the person who recently tested positive. The individuals who are considered close contacts have been notified by school nursing personnel and will be required to quarantine.

At this point in time, the CDC allows us the option to continue with the 14 day quarantine requirement as is recommended by our Medical Director. As a reminder, only those individuals contacted by the school nurse are required to quarantine.

It is also important to note that grade 7-8 middle school students share common areas with the high school. Due to the recent positive cases between the junior and senior high school and the number of shared spaces between the two schools there is a greater possibility for school transmission. Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, both Winslow Jr High and Winslow High School will go to remote learning until January 4, 2021. Our custodial staff will also take this opportunity to follow the cleaning guidance from the CDC.

Winslow Elementary School grades (k-5) will remain open to in-person instruction as will grade 6 students who are currently located at the old Winslow Junior High School facility for they have not been impacted by the most recent incident. The child care program located at the old Winslow Junior High School facility will remain open as well.

We are working on a plan to distribute lunches to junior and senior high students. Building administrators will be in contact with additional information. This may take a few days to organize.

As always, due to the health and privacy rights of the individual who tested positive, we will not be releasing his/her name. We are notifying the community in an effort to eliminate any misinformation and to take the opportunity to reinforce the importance of wearing masks and face coverings, washing hands, and maintaining social distancing.

As always, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Please monitor yourself and/or your student for signs and symptoms of the coronavirus, call a health care provider if symptoms start, and stay home if you are sick.

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

This letter is to inform you that on the evening of Friday, November 27 we were informed by an individual associated with Winslow Jr. High School that the individual tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19) on Friday, November 27, 2020.

Members of the Winslow nursing staff have been in contact with the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the individual who tested positive . We are following the recommendations of the CDC Guidelines which is to contact the individuals (both students and staff) who had contact with the individual who tested positive. These individuals would all be considered close contacts and must quarantine for 14 days beginning on the last day they would have been in contact with the person who recently tested positive. The individuals who are considered close contacts are currently being notified by school nursing personnel and will be required to quarantine until December 7, 2020. They may return to school on December 8, 2020. Due to the health and privacy rights of the individual who tested positive, we will not be releasing his/her name. We are notifying the community in an effort to eliminate any misinformation and to take the opportunity to reinforce the importance of wearing masks and face coverings, washing hands, and maintaining social distancing.

In all, 17 students have been determined to be close contacts along with 8 members of the staff. Unfortunately, we have a shortage of substitute teachers, which means that the entire grade 8 class will be working remotely from home beginning Monday, November 30, 2020 until Tuesday, December 8, 2020. Principal Briggs will reach out to parents with specific instructions sometime this weekend. It is important to note that this pertains to grade 8 only. All other grades will continue to report to school on the day in which their cohort is scheduled to attend which would either be Monday, November 30 or Tuesday, December 1, 2020.

The safety of our students and staff is our top priority.

Dear Staff, Students and Families

On November 3, 2020 I sent an email to all families and staff to inform everyone that we were currently waiting for the Covid-19 test results of an individual at Winslow Elementary School. We knew this individual had direct contact with 9 students and 1 staff member. Out of an abundance of caution, we asked the 9 students and 1 staff member to quarantine until we received results of the test. Everyone cooperated with our request.

On the afternoon of November 5, 2020 we received notice from the CDC that the individual in question did indeed test positive for Covid 19. The CDC praised our school for its immediate response to this situation and the actions that we took out of an abundance of caution.

The CDC will contact the 9 students and 1 staff member. I wanted to give the CDC the opportunity to contact the families before sending this informational email update to all of you.

At this point in time, no further action is needed. The 9 students and staff member will continue to quarantine for the amount of days recommended by the CDC guidelines. It is important to note that to date, we have not had a positive case of Covid-19 with any of our students.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support during this unprecedented time. I can assure you that our staff members are diligently working to provide the best instructional experience possible under the conditions we are facing. As I have mentioned and will continue to state, the safety of our students and staff is a top priority. As your Superintendent, I am very proud of the way in which the staff are ensuring that the safety guidelines are being met at school. I am also proud of your children in the way in which they have answered the call adhering to the new safety guidelines. With cases in the Central Maine area on the rise, we need the help of the entire Winslow community now more than ever in order to keep everyone safe and our schools open. I ask that you please continue to be vigilant by taking the necessary precautions such as the wearing of masks, washing hands and maintaining social distancing.

A reminder that schools will not be in session on November 9th, 10th and 11th. The 9th and 10th will be used as teacher workshop days. The 11th is the celebration of Veterans Day, where we honor those who have served our country. The 9th and 10th will also be an opportunity for our custodial staff to do some additional cleaning and sanitation in all of the buildings. Last, but certainly not least, please be sure to check the district website for updates under the Health and Safety heading. If you have questions, please reach out to the building administrator of the school your child attends. I am also available to answer questions you might have.

Thank you,

Peter Thiboutot

Dear Staff, Students and Families

Earlier this week I sent an email informing the school community that Winslow Public Schools had its first individual test positive for the coronavirus (Covid-19). That information was sent via robo email to all members of the school community. The information was also posted on our district home page under Health and Safety. With cases spiking in Maine and in the Central Maine area, it’s very important for community members to have a place where they can look for accurate updates. I ask that you please refer to the district home page for updated and accurate information.

As we continue to provide updated information to the school community, I want to inform you that we are currently waiting for the Covid-19 test result of an individual at Winslow Elementary School. This individual last had contact with 9 students and 1 staff member at the end of last week. We have contacted the state liaison from the DOE and explained the circumstances around this particular situation. In addition, we discussed the circumstances of this situation with our nursing staff and agreed that the safest course of action was to ask those who had contact with this individual to quarantine for the required amount of days. All individuals and their families have been contacted and are cooperating with our request.

Again, I want to be clear, we have taken the above action out of an abundance of caution. As always, our first priority is the safety of our students and staff, and we will always err on the side of caution.

Thank you,

Peter Thiboutot
Superintendent of Winslow Schools

Dear Staff, Students, and Families,

This letter is to inform you that on the afternoon of Sunday, November 1st we were made aware of an individual associated with Winslow High School who recently tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19). We are also aware that this individual has not been at Winslow High School since Monday, October 26th.

Members of the Winslow nursing staff have been in contact with the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the individual who tested positive. We are following the recommendations of the CDC which is to contact the individuals who had contact with the individual who tested positive on Monday, October 26th. The individuals who are considered direct contacts are currently being notified by school nursing personnel and will be required to quarantine until Monday, November 9th. Due to the health and privacy rights of the individual, we will not be releasing his/her name. We are notifying the community in an effort to eliminate any misinformation and to take the opportunity to reinforce the importance of wearing masks and face coverings, washing hands, and maintaining social distancing. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Please monitor yourself and/or your student for signs and symptoms of the coronavirus, call a health care provider if symptoms start, and stay home if you are sick.

(Update/Clarification) All Winslow Schools will be open tomorrow Monday, November 2, 2020. We are following the recommendations of the CDC. Members of the Winslow nursing staff are currently contacting those individuals who are considered direct contacts. Only those individuals contacted need to quarantine until Monday, November 9th as a precaution. Our custodial staff has also been notified and we are continuing to follow the cleaning guidance from the CDC so that students and staff can safely return to school on Monday, November 2, 2020.

This is a challenging time in our state and nation. Please continue to take the necessary precautions against the coronavirus in order to reduce the spread of the disease. Feel free to reach out to the Winslow High School Nurse, Sarah Dewitt (sdewitt@winslowk12.org), WHS Principal, Chad Bell (cbell@winslowk12.org) or myself at pthiboutot@winslowk12.org if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Peter Thiboutot

September 22, 2020 - Noon

Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Staff,

The Winslow Board of Education met on September 21, 2020. One of the agenda items was an update on the opening of schools. As you know, we delayed the opening of schools until Tuesday, September 8 in order to adhere to the safety guidelines. I am pleased to report that our opening of schools has gone exceptionally well! All grade levels are reporting that the students are abiding to the new safety precautions which include the wearing of masks, social distancing and frequent hand washing. I would also like to add that the staff is working exceptionally hard to provide your students with in-person and/or remote learning experiences.

An inservice day was held on Friday, September 18, 2020. A portion of the day was dedicated for staff to examine our current educational plan. Our inservice day allowed staff the time to have conversations regarding those practices that are going well, along with conversations on how to improve the delivery of instruction while teaching in a hybrid model or using a remote format during this pandemic. Perhaps one of the biggest realizations was that we need to continue with our current hybrid model as long as the current safety recommendations and guidelines remain in effect from the CDC. Our number one priority is to provide a safe learning environment for our students and staff.

A calendar for the month of October has been posted on the district web site so that you can plan accordingly. We will provide you with monthly updates throughout the year. We will continue to assess and monitor our situation, alerting you to any changes as quickly as possible.

An immediate change I would like to bring to your attention is a change for students, parents and staff traveling back from non-exempt states. Our current plan states that you should either quarantine for 14 days upon your return or be tested once you return. In fact, the current recommendation from the CDC indicates that you can be tested 72 hours prior to your return. However, there is a growing body of evidence to suggest that people should wait 3-5 days after they return before being tested. A member of our nursing staff contacted our school physician consultant to clarify best practice. His recommendation was indeed to wait the 3-5 days prior to being tested upon your return or quarantine for 14 days. Until this situation is further clarified, Winslow Public Schools will choose the latter option based on the recommendation of our school physician consultant.

As a reminder, it is important to note that if a case of COVID-19 were to develop in the Winslow School Community, Winslow Public Schools would work under the direction of the Maine Center for Disease Control and follow their recommendations (including contact tracing, going red (fully remote), notification of close contacts, etc.). Recommended public health actions will depend on the number of cases, the location of cases and the degree of contact those cases may have had with other students, teachers or staff.

To protect confidentiality, we will follow all HIPPA and FERPA guidelines as they pertain to individuals and families and any potential medical situations that arise. While some families may want specific information, we want to assure all families that we will follow the guidance of the CDC in notifying any close contacts to someone who may test positive for COVID-19. In general, a close contact is defined as someone with exposure to the confirmed case within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more, regardless of whether individuals were wearing face coverings.

If there were a confirmed positive case in a household, the Maine CDC uses a platform called Sara Alert to conduct symptom checks and monitoring of close contacts of confirmed cases. Maine CDC will enroll asymptomatic close contacts of confirmed cases-whether teachers, students or staff-into Sara Alert for daily monitoring during the quarantine period. Under the direction of the Maine CDC, school community members will be notified when a confirmed or probable case has been detected that is associated with the school. Maine CDC will report publicly when an investigation has been opened into a potential outbreak of COVID-19 associated with a school, as it does in other settings.

In closing, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire school community for your support and understanding during our current situation. As we are seeing in other communities (Sanford being the most recent,) our current situation could quickly go from a green rating to red, which means we would need to close our schools to in-person learning and return to a completely remote situation for a set period of time. We are working hard to prevent that from happening and we need your help. Applying and practicing the safety protocols of mask wearing, social distancing and the washing of hands must be encouraged beyond the walls of the school. Now is not the time to take the foot off the accelerator when it comes to safety. If anything, we need to be more vigilant so that we keep our students in school and our community safe.

Thank you,

Peter Thiboutot

August 26, 2020 - 3:30pm

Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Staff,

Over the course of the summer, I have sent several informational emails to all of you regarding the reopening of schools. Those messages along with any updated messages regarding the reopening of schools can be found by going to our District Website www.winslowk12.org and clicking on Health and Safety.

One of my earlier messages explained that we have been guided by three principles in developing our reopening of schools plan. The first principle was protecting the health and safety of our school and local communities.

That principal is why I am writing to you today. As you know, in order for us to safely reopen our schools we must adhere to the safety guidelines provided by MDOE and the CDC. Part of those guidelines requires that we have Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our students and staff. That equipment can range from masks to certain types of sanitizing solutions and supplies. We have recently learned that some of our PPE is on back order due to the number of requests being made by all schools in the state (and country for that matter). The supplies (or an acceptable alternative) will not be available to us for another week. To that end and due to reasons beyond our control, we will delay the start of schools in Winslow until Tuesday, September 8.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause all of you. I know we are all anxiously waiting for a return to school but it is imperative that we do so with the utmost concern for the safety of our students and staff.

We will use the following schedule.

Tuesday September 8. School will begin for students with the last names beginning with Le-Z (Cohort 2)

Wednesday, September 9. School will begin for students with the last names beginning with A-La. (Cohort 1)

Thursday, September 10. Students with the last name of Le-Z (Cohort 2)

Friday, September 11. Students with the last name of A-La (Cohort 1)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday, September 14. Le-Z (Cohort 2)

Tuesday, September 15. A-La (Cohort 1)

Wednesday, September 16. Le-Z (Cohort 2)

Thursday, September 17. A-La (Cohort 1)

Friday, September 18. Staff Inservice No school for students. Time for staff to evaluate progress to date and make recommendations for future programming.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday, September 21. Le-Z (Cohort 2)

Tuesday, September 22. A-La (Cohort 1)

Wednesday, September 23. Le-Z (Cohort 2)

Thursday, September 24. A-La (Cohort 1)

Friday, September 25. Le-Z (Cohort 2).

Please note, some of you have already made special arrangements if you have children living in the same household with a different last name. Those arrangements will not change.

Please contact your building administrator with specific questions pertaining to the building your child attends.

Thank you,

Peter Thiboutot

Superintendent of Winslow Schools


August 11, 2020 - 3pm

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Last Friday, Winslow Public Schools released our re-opening plan. The plan can be found by going to our district web site (www.winslowk12.org) and clicking on the Schools Re-opening Plan link. Please check this site often, for we will continue to post updated information regarding the re-opening of schools.

During last week's announcement of our re-opening plan, we indicated that a survey would be available to you on Tuesday, August 11. It is crucial that parents/caregivers complete this survey to assist in our planning. The survey can be found by going to our district web site (www.winslowk12.org) and clicking on the district's Health & Safety page link. You can also access the survey directly through this link: https://forms.gle/L1EgswakvZDzDKgw6

One question being asked is whether your child will be returning to school or attending remotely. Please know that the remote option is not what we did this spring with the closure of school; remote learning will be regular, ongoing learning with teachers focused on the needs of their remote learners, and will include clear expectations and guidelines around attendance, grading etc.

The other key question involves the transportation of students. You will be asked if you are able to transport your child to and/or from school. The answers to both of these questions are crucial to our planning, allowing us to develop/adjust bus routes and make modifications to class lists so that we can get accurate information to you as quickly as possible. We ask that you complete the survey by Friday, August 14, 2020.

Parents/caregivers are being asked to make a decision now regarding their selection of remote or in-person learning. Please know that parents/caregivers will have an opportunity on September 17, 2020 to adjust their selection of remote or in-person education, which would go into effect on September 28. After that, the selection will remain in place through the f
