Remote Learning S.O.P. from the Learning Commons
With everyone working and learning from home, the MAMS Learning Commons felt it would be helpful to remind you all of our laptop standard operating procedures and communicate how you should behave during virtual classes, how to care for your laptop, and where to go when you have questions or issues. Please take the time to view this video.

Meal Pickup Schedule: 
Beginning Wednesday, April 8th, we will have one pick-up day a week. This pickup will now include seven days’ worth of meals. Each child will receive a large grocery bag filled with seven days of breakfast, lunch, and milk. We will also include cooking/reheating & refrigeration guidelines. We are trying, as best as we can, to limit exposure to our staff as well as our families during this extended period of closure. We also want to act in accordance with, and support, the Governor’s instructions for staying at home to the best of our abilities.

Our hours and locations will be as follows:
• Mt Ararat Middle School - Wednesdays 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM: PICK-UP IN FRONT BUS LOOP ONLY
• Bowdoin Central School – Wednesdays 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
* Bowdoinham Community School-Wednesdays 12:00-1:00 PM

• Harpswell Community School – Wednesdays 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
If you cannot pick up at the designated time frame from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM, the middle school will have extended hours to accommodate the weekly pickup. As always, if you have any questions, please contact Katy DiCara, dicarak@link75.org
