Important Updates Regarding COVID-19 Procedures

September 21, 2021

 

Dear MeAA Families,

 

COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people. Maine Arts Academy has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, Maine Arts Academy cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19.

 

If multiple students and staff members at Maine Arts Academy experience close contact (within 6 feet for 15 total minutes or more within 24 hours) with individuals who are COVID-19 positive, Maine Arts Academy may exercise its option to utilize remote learning while the campus is deep-cleaned. Going forward, students who reside in households with COVID-19 positive family members or are a close contact with a COVID-19 individual will be required to work from home for 10 days and return to school after that as long as they remain symptom free. All assignments, videos, and classroom materials will be accessible through the Infinite Campus platform for students who are learning remotely. Zoom links will not be provided for individuals who are quarenteening. As always, if you or your family members have symptoms of COVID-19 or other illnesses, please stay home.

 

Maine Arts Academy continues to maximize on-campus in-person instruction for its students and staff members.

 

Warmly,

Heather King, Head of School hk[email protected]

Updates for our Community

December 22, 2020

Hello MEAA Families!

Please take a moment to watch our holiday cheer to you all! WE appreciate each and every family that chooses to send their student to our special school!

Please make sure your 11th or 12th grader signs up for Spring college courses! Registration is open now. Please email [email protected] for any questions.

We would like to remind everyone how important it is to make sure your student is ATTENDING classes. We understand how difficult 2020 has been, but we want to make sure students are still progressing and learning. Students have until January 8 to make up any work. The semester ends that day.

Please remember that we will be remote the week of January 4-8 in order to mitigate any traveling or group get-togethers that might cause cases of COVID to rise. Please have your child tested if you are traveling or getting together in larger groups before they return to campus.

Thank you to all the parents who supported NWEA testing! We truly appreciate it! We also appreciate the enormous support for our art show.  The art show website was seen 5500 times and more than half the buyers were from 25 states. The students sold over $1,000 dollars in art! Our student entrepreneurs along with our Business for Professional Artist course students were able to see how to make money as professional artists. Thank you also to Living Water Community Church in Oakland and Kelly McAlpine for donating 39 backpacks to our National Honor Society backpack donation program! We truly appreciate it. Lastly, thank you to all that attended our choral concert the other night! The students were brave for singing remotely and were truly inspiring!

Have a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year!
Heather King, Head of School
