June 7th:

As predicted by the National Weather Service, we are expected to experience temperatures in the 90's with increasing humidity into tomorrow (likely a thunder shower tomorrow afternoon). Without air conditioning in most of our classrooms, we know there will be a need to allow for more mask and water breaks. Please contact the school if your child has any medical condition affected by this kind of weather, and additionally please send along water to ensure hydration throughout the day.

Free Breakfast and Lunch for Kids this Summer. Information can be found here.

To All Parents and Guardians of RSU #74 Students,

You may not be aware that another round of Maine’s Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefits are coming soon. These food stamp benefits can be used to purchase food in stores, and families of students that qualify for free and reduced lunch are eligible. Benefits will be issued on a pre-loaded Visa type card so keep watching your mail if think you may qualify.

For up-to-date P_EBT information, including timelines, amounts and how to sign up for them, please go to: https://www.maine.gov/dhhs/ofi/programs-services/food-supplement

If you did not apply for free and reduced meals this year by completing the Economically Disadvantaged Survey at the start of the school year, you still have time to complete the form and qualify for the benefit for the months following your application approval. Please complete the CONFIDENTIAL APPLICATION found on the District website under Parent/Community/School Meal Information or at this link http://bit.ly/CEP-RSU74. Printed copies can be requested from any school office as well.

Once your application is complete, please return to your child(ren)’s school office. As soon as it has been received and processed, your eligibility information will be uploaded to the state database. This will allow DHHS to access your school meal eligibility information and determine your EBT benefit amount and time frame.

May 27th:

Dear RSU #74 Students and Families,

Greetings, and guess what? We made it!!!!!!

As this year has been like none other, and to ensure efficacy for our last day to be less confusing:

Our last student day of school will be: June 9, 2021.

A traditional half day was turning out to be more confusing which was originally scheduled for the 10th. Therefore, June 9th will be our last regular school day for all students, and thus, will be a regularly scheduled day (this means PK-5 will function as they have, and students who are scheduled to be at school on Wednesday the 9th - hybrid - for MS and HS, will remain as scheduled). - Contact your child's school if you have any questions.


Mike Tracy, ED. S.

On June 8th at 12:00 PM at Carrabec Community School, RSU #74 in partnership with North East Mobile Health Services will be offering a vaccine clinic to anyone (students and/or family members) 12 or older. This will be the two dose Pfizer vaccine. The second vaccine will be available on June 29th at 12:00 PM at Carrabec Community School.

If you are interested in participating in this vaccine clinic please register by June 1st using the link below. Information will be sent to you that you will need to fill out and bring to your student's school by June 4th.


As a friendly reminder, this Thursday evening, May 27th, is the annual School District Budget Meeting. If you are a resident of the district, you are certainly encouraged to attend. The meeting begins at 6:00 pm in the Carrabec High School cafeteria, masks and distancing are required.

Please contact the Superintendent's office if you have any questions: 207 635-2727

Please view this video message from Mr. Tracy.

Thank you and have a nice evening.

May 14th:

Recently, the FDA has authorized the use of Pfizer vaccine for persons 12 to 15 years old. This vaccine has already been authorized for those at least 16 years old. Super cold storage means Pfizer vaccine is only available at limited vaccine clinics. One of these is Northern Light in Bangor https://covid.northernlighthealth.org/. Walgreens pharmacies expect to start offering this week. https://www.walgreens.com/topic/promotion/covid-vaccine.jsp

Along with Redington-Fairview General Hospital and other Somerset County school districts, we are exploring the feasibility of a single first dose vaccine clinic at a Skowhegan location, dedicated to vaccinating students 12 to 19 years old. A second clinic would be held 3 weeks later to administer the 2nd dose. The first clinic may not occur until after the end of the school year. Transportation from the district to this location may be available.

Please complete the survey below to let us know of your interest. This may be completed for each student at least 12 years old.


Thank you and have a nice weekend.

Good Afternoon,

Please see this COVID-19 case update from Superintendent Mike Tracy:

If you have any questions please reach out to your child's school.

Thank You and Have a nice Evening

May 11th:

Dear Garret Schenck School Community,

We just became aware of a new case of COVID -19 after a 3rd grader tested positive today. Although, the current infection placement is officially unknown with this new case, it may be traceable back to Friday's matter involving 2 staff members. Although difficult, this proves that out-placing students to Remote Learning was, in fact, the right decision for Garret Schenck Elementary School.

We ask you to remain vigilant to observe your children for any symptoms, and please contact your Primary Care Physician (PCP) in the event any arise.

Thank you,

May 10th:

Dear Garret Schenck Families,

We apologize for the shift to remote learning at the end of the school year, we know that this is difficult for all. We are disappointed too.

In the event that you choose to participate in the school nutrition program over the next 2 weeks, please call the Garret School Elementary School Office: 207-696-3100.

School Breakfasts and Lunches will be available for pick-up on Tuesday and Thursday this week and next. Please call to indicate your interest by 7pm tonight, so that we can ensure an accurate count.

K-5 Summer School

This year RSU #74 is considering offering a summer program for all students who are currently in kindergarten through fifth grade with transportation, breakfast and lunch provided.

The program will run during the mornings of July 12-15, 19-22, & 26-29.

As always your child may attend some or all of the days. This program will take the place of the RSU #74 Title 1 and Special Education Programs that are usually offered during the summer.

We are currently surveying families to see if their child/children would attend if this is offered. Could you please complete the survey to assist us in planning our summer program?

If you have any questions, please contact Grace Cram (gcram@carrabec.org) or Jean Butler (jbutler@carrabec.org).

Due to an increased tick population, RSU #74 will be spraying May 13th at CHS & CCS.
