Governor Mills announced that Maine's State of Civil Emergency will end on June 30, 2021.  All requirements, including the face covering requirement for indoors as well as physical distancing as it relates to Maine schools, will also end on June 30.


Masks will be a personal choice for everyone.  The CDC continues to strongly recommend masks for those who have not yet been vaccinated.  Please take time to speak with your child so they understand what your individual expectations are.


Remote Meals Available During Summer Months

posted Jun 17, 2021, 8:45 AM by Kelly Johnston

The Nutrition team would like to let all parents/guardians know that remote meals will continue to be available throughout the summer, with no gap in services. We will be providing up to 7 days of breakfast and lunch meals each week. All orders can be picked up weekly on Wednesdays at the Scarborough High School between 8:00am-6:00pm. As always, these meals are available to all children 18 and under, and the child is not required to be enrolled in a Scarborough school to participate. Please continue to pre-order your remote meal orders through the Nutrislice app, or email Brenda Franklin at bfranklin@scarboroughschools.org, or call 207-730-4700 if you forgot to pre-order the meals for the week and would still like to pick up.

If you need any assistance with the Nutrislice application or have any questions, please contact Brenda Franklin at BFranklin@scarboroughschools.org.
