MADAWASKA, Maine (WAGM) -

Madawaska schools are the latest to go remote, after two individuals associated with the Madawaska Elementary School tested positive for Covid-19.

In a letter dated December 17th, Superintendent Ben Sirois notified families of the cases, indicating the individuals were last in school on December 15th.

Sirois says “Beginning tomorrow, Friday, December 18, all Madawaska schools will move to remote learning to ensure that there is no spread of the virus to other students.”

A meal survey will determine who needs meals delivered while students learn remotely.

Sirois says school officials will continue to work closely with medical advisors at Northern Maine Medical Center to monitor the community spread of Covid-19 and to make future determinations about school reintegration.
