MSAD # 74
BUDGET IS APPROVED
DEPUTY SHERIFF TO VISIT
SAD #74 SCHOOLS
If you see a Sheriff's car parked in front of one of the elementary schools for a couple of hours every Tuesday, don't panic! Thanks to a grant from the Healthy Maine Partnership, the elementary schools in SAD #74 will have the services of a Sheriff's Deputy for six hours a week starting on March 12th. Deputy Michael Pike of the Somerset County Sheriff's Department will be with us every Tuesday, spending two hours at each of the schools (Garret Schenck, Solon, and Carrabec Community School).
Deputy Pike graduated with a degree in education from the University of Maine at Farmington before entering the field of law enforcement. He is the supervisor of the Community Corrections Program for the Sheriff's Department. Deputy Pike has been a Boy Scout leader in Anson for the past eight years and is the father of two children.
On Tuesdays, Deputy PIke will vary the time he spends at each school so that sometimes students will see him early in the morning, sometimes over lunch and recess, and sometimes in the afternoon. He will visit classrooms, help with school activities, and get a chance to interact with the students and staff. Our Civil Rights Teams have brainstormed a number of ways that Deputy Pike can provide services to our schools. We are excited for the opportunity for our students to make some positive connections with a law enforcement officer whose job it is to help the community and its citizens.
If you have any questions about this program, please contact your child's school
The safety of your children is always our first priority. While all of us would like to believe that nothing bad could happen in our small communities with the tragedies earlier this year and the increasing incidents of conflict throughout our state we are have been particularly focused on this in recent days. In December we began an updated review of our safety procedures and practices and a reexamination of security for our buildings. Principals and staff took immediate steps to increase the security of the schools and to renew their vigilance around safety. We have increased the vigilance around accessing of the schools and will be taking more steps as we go forward. We have had initial physical security inspections of the school buildings and are in process of developing upgrade plans for all of the buildings to improve the facilities securities. Some steps have already occurred, more will be occurring through this spring and other longer term renovations will be included in the budget development process. Beyond the schools physical security we are making some adjustments in schedules, assignments, duties and procedures to better ensure the safety of our students. The Maine State Police are assisting us in reviewing our crisis plans and will be assisting in practicing lock down drills.
We will be having meetings over the coming month at each school where parents will be invited to provide ideas and assistance in carrying out the ongoing review of our safety and response procedures. These will be scheduled and announced for all schools in this coming week. Some of the changes in facilities and procedures will present some minor inconveniences to parents around school entry compared to the current arrangements. We would like to thank you in advance for your assistance and cooperation around these adjustments in our efforts to provide for increased safety of your students.
Thank you for your continued support.

Most children have been immunized for whooping cough. However, what most people don’t realize is that the immunization wears off 5 to 10 years after the last routine vaccination shot, typically administered when children are between 4 and 6 years old. That means approximately 5 years after your child’s last DPT immunization, your child
could be vulnerable and unprotected against whooping cough. The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention recommend that if it has been 5 years or more since your children received their last DPT (diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis) immunization that they receive a booster vaccine known as Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis). This is a recommendation for 10 year old children. This shot replaces the tetanus shot (Td) that
is usually given to preteens and teens. However, the vaccine should not be given to any child who is allergic or has had a reaction to any part of the vaccine in the past. Talk to your children’s doctor about the Tdap vaccination to determine if your child is eligible.
***Studies show that infected children and adolescents/young adults may infect
vulnerable infants and young children that have not completed their immunization
everyone per lifetime. Adults are the number one people who infect children.
Besides immunization, the practice of the following good hygiene tips may
prevent you and your children from getting whooping cough.
• When coughing or sneezing, cough into your upper sleeve or use a tissue.
• Wash your hands with warm water and soap thoroughly immediately after
sneezing or coughing.
• Immediately throw away all used tissues in a trash can.
• Wash commonly used surfaces with antibacterial cleaners often to prevent the
spreading of germs.
• Do not share food or drinks with anyone.
• Wash hands often
• Eat healthy, balanced meals.
• Get plenty of rest.
• If your child/children are ill, keep them home.
