Dexter Regional High School, Dexter
The teachers at DRHS are teaching (from their classroom) on Wednesdays, but the students are home/remote. All of the students are expected to show up on Zoom and lessons are delivered every block throughout the day. Regular attendance is taken and reported. The time frames and daily schedule are the same, just no kids in the school. After 2 weeks, it seems to be going OK. We had early discussions about using Wednesdays for PD and planning, but we decided it was more important to spend actual time with the students (even if it’s remotely). Every teacher has a Rally system in their classroom, which enhances the Zoom – online learning experience for both the teacher and the students. We also have our Advisory block on Wednesday morning by Zoom and that seems to be working as well.
Ridge View Community School, Dexter
We use Wednesdays as an office hours day as well as checking in with kids who have not appeared remotely and we are hosting help desk hours for parents to solve connectivity issues. Teachers also use the time to plan for the remote days.
Washington Academy, East Machias
At Washington Academy, we have created a reduced day schedule where teachers will connect with all students remotely by using a google attendance form. Students will also answer a question or two. (SAT question of the day for example) We agreed to NOT introduce any new material. The schedule for the day looks like this:
Period 1 9:00-9:20
Period 2 9:30-9:50
Period 3 10:00-10:20
Office Hours: 10:30 – 1:00
Teachers may work from home that day if they wish.
Marshwood Middle School, Eliot
Wednesday is a full workday for all Marshwood Middle School staff (Hybrid & Remote) where they will have office hours each Wednesday from 7:30 A.M. until 1:50 P.M.. Wednesdays should also be viewed as an active learning day for all students. In general and typically, our Wednesday work with students will be provided remotely. Teachers will be scheduling times to meet with individual and small groups of students who require pre-teaching, reteaching, or extensions to the instruction they receive on their synchronous teaching and learning days. In addition, students can reach out to their teachers as they have questions or reach points of confusion that require assistance and verbal interaction with their teachers. Please keep in mind that teachers will be responding to many requests for assistance and responses to their requests for help may not always occur immediately. Students should submit their request for teacher help, exercise a bit of patience, and plan to work on completing other assignments while they await a teacher’s response or invite to a virtual meeting.

Loranger Elementary School, Old Orchard Beach (RSU 23)
We at RSU23 in OOB are doing things as consistently as possible from pK-12, and I can share with greater detail what’s happening at Loranger (grades 3-8). Our hybrid plan is all students will be present Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday, with Wednesday remote. I am calling our Wednesday’s “Remote Lite” as we use it to prepare our staff and students if we do end up going remote for any extended amount of time. We do have a plan for what our daily schedule would be if that were to occur. Here’s what our Hybrid Wednesday will look like.
- Each teacher will have a morning meeting/SEL check in with their students. This is also a time for reminders of the tasks for the day – which will mirror tasks that students would be completing on a remote day if we were closed for a duration of time. Teachers can assign tasks in advance (Monday or Tuesday), and can provide in person feedback at the end of the week. This feedback should help improve the process if we go remote.
- Our grade level teams will hold grade level meetings.
- Once per month we will have our Student Advocacy Meeting’s by grade level
- Once per month we will be holding our district wide half day PD (previously scheduled)
Each teacher will have a designated office hour in which they can be accessible by students and or/families by email or video conference. This can also be used as an intervention/enrichment time scheduled in advance by the teacher or the student.
