News & Events
Quarter One at Casco Bay High School has produced the return of some favorite Casco Bay rituals that we have not experienced since 2019, such as a three-night Senior Quest, the Halloween Dance, cohorts of visiting educators, and weekly, live school meetings for the entire student body. We’ve also experienced a few significant firsts, including our first Maine Teacher of the Year (Mr. Bernstein) and our first “quarter” (after 17 years of a trimester-based academic calendar).
One new member, two returning members and five student representatives were sworn in at the Portland Board of Public Education’s Dec. 5 Inauguration ceremony. The Board also voted for Sarah Lentz to be the Board’s new chair for the coming year and for Abusana “Micky” Bondo to be vice chair.
Current Board Chair Emily Figdor was informally tapped last month by fellow Board members to lead the Board again for a third time in the coming year. However, Figdor has now decided not to accept the demanding role again, and instead will support at-large Board member Sarah Lentz for the position and District 1 Board member Abusana "Micky" Bondo for vice chair when the Board votes for new leadership at its Dec. 5 Inauguration ceremony.
Casco Bay High School dismissed school early today, Friday, Dec. 2, due to a significant number of students and staff out because of the flu. The school is expected to reopen on Monday, Dec. 5.
Today 21% of our students are currently out sick, primarily with the Flu. We hope each and everyone of you who are not feeling well, take care of yourselves and get well soon!
Please know that if your child has a fever or is feeling sick, they should stay home, even if they test negative for COVID. If your child is well, please send them to school as normal.
