From Superintendent Jordan:
At approximately 9:45 AM this morning local authorities informed us that a bomb threat had been received specifically naming the Ridge View Community School. All students and staff were safely evacuated to Dexter Regional High School where parents were reunified with their children. A State Police canine bomb-sniffing unit performed an extensive search of the school and found nothing suspicious. The school will be in session tomorrow with an added Police presence. Thank you to all of the staff, students, and the Dexter Police Department for handling a very stressful situation in a calm professional manner.
Here’s a current list of the partners who have written us letters of support for this project going forward:
Other organizations have verbally committed to supporting this project (including the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, MELMAC, and the Maine Discovery Museum to name a few), but have yet to send a letter in public support (but those letters should be arriving soon).
This project is not only picking up steam, but is garnering a lot of interest from people both within and outside of the AOS #94 & SAD #4 communities.
Stay tuned for more updates as they happen!
