Family Survey for Return to School Planning

Now that this unprecedented school year has ended, we know that families are looking forward and wondering what fall will bring.  We want you to know that we too are looking forward and working very hard to provide the clarity and answers you are waiting for.


The Health & Safety Re-entry Committee, which includes representatives from various stakeholder groups, was created in mid-May for the purpose of planning and coordinating the COVID-19 work in the School Department.  Using guidance from CDC and the State of Maine, as well as models used in schools across the state, nation and globally, this committee has made decisions and implemented new procedures and protocols for our staff workshop days, summer childcare, and summer rec programs held in our schools.  All of these new procedures and protocols are a first step in preparing for the return of students to school.


Last week, the Department of Education released a framework for returning to school.  The Committee is now looking to that framework to provide guidance about fall.  We know that questions about school in the fall are weighing heavily on families and staff.  We assure you it weighs heavily on us as well and we are working to make decisions as soon as we can.  Watch for an update on our planning progress in mid-July.


We are seeking feedback from families so please take a few minutes to complete our family survey.  https://forms.gle/UthYHiiSSEw852e56 Your feedback is important to us, and hearing from you is critical to informing our decisions and plans. 


Thank you.

The Auburn School Department stands together with our staff, students, families, community, and nation, against racism

The Auburn School Department stands together with our staff, students, families, community, and nation, against racism, inequality, and injustice against our black and brown community members. During these difficult times, we recognize the feelings of sadness and anger that people have as a result of George Floyd’s death and the many other black and brown lives that have been lost due to police brutality. 


The Auburn School Department will continue to work at examining our policies, actions, and behaviors to ensure our black and brown students and their families feel valued and respected. We are committed to doing whatever it takes to provide safe and supportive learning environments where every student is treasured, regardless of race, skin color, national origin and ancestry. The Auburn School Department will do better to combat racism and systemic oppression through education and engagement. We need to hold ourselves and others accountable to our core values of compassion, honesty, responsibility, courage, fairness, and respect. We speak of kindness and recognize its power when we need to stand side by side, especially during difficult and challenging times. This calls for ongoing conversations and actions to combat institutionalized racism. 


As we all struggle to find ways to listen, learn and talk about these difficult issues within ourselves and with our children and our peers, we thought we would share some resources that you may consider using. Please know that you can reach out to guidance counselors, teachers, and administrators if you need support. The resource list can be found at https://bit.ly/3cyzbMN.
