Wisdom Middle High School moves to remote learning due to COVID-19 case

ST. AGATHA, Maine — Students attending Wisdom Middle/High School will move to a remote learning model due to a person associated with the school being diagnosed with COVID-19.

“Because this case identifies many of the WMHS staff as close contacts, we will not be able to have in-person instruction for students and cover classrooms for teachers to teach remotely,” SAD 33 superintendent Ben Sirois said.  

The person who tested positive for the virus was last in school on Tuesday, April 6, according to Sirois, who added that the person is in isolation at home.

School was canceled for all Wisdom students for Thursday, April 8, so teachers could prepare to switch to the remote learning model.

Remote learning will begin Friday, April 9, and continue until Friday, April 16.

Dr. Levesque Elementary School, the other SAD 33 school, is not affected as of Thursday and will continue with in-school learning. 

Parents of Wisdom Middle/High School students who wish to have school meals delivered during the remote learning period should contact food service director Melanie Lagasse at mlagasse@vuesc.org, or call 207-543-7717.   

Meal delivery will begin on Friday, April 9.
