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.
In case you haven’t already heard, we had a fantastic and successful trip to the Maine state science fair on Saturday, March 25, 2017.
All our students represented Dexter exceptionally well.We had 10 DRHS students who participated out of a field of around 170, and their posters were well done and their presentations were exceptional. They made good impressions with the judges and they had some fun too.
Two students who finished second and third in the psychology division. Hannah Farrar and Megan Peach.
There were also tuition scholarships awarded.
Hannah Farrar received a full tuition scholarship to The University of Southern Maine. Ashley Reynolds received a full tuition scholarship to the University of Maine Orono with a research stipend, a mentor, and admittance to the honors college. Congratulations to Hannah and Ashley!
If you see any of our science fair students please congratulate them:
