Line the Streets to Celebrate Class of 2021!

On Sunday, June 6th from 5:45 pm - 6:15pm the newly graduated students in the Class of 2021 will board MSAD #51 school buses one final time and be escorted by our local fire and police departments down Main Street and Tuttle Road on the way to their Senior Celebration at a nearby location.
We are hoping to give this class an amazing send-off from people in North Yarmouth and Cumberland. The timing and logistics of the event require a shorter parade route than has been done in years past, so the best place to celebrate the students is by lining Main Street and the sidewalk on Tuttle Road. You may park on side streets off of Tuttle Road, at the school campus after 5:15pm, or the Town Hall in Cumberland where the procession will end.
These seniors have missed so much because of the pandemic, and we want their final memory of high school to be one where they can know how much their communities support them by seeing a sea of people OF ALL AGES clapping, waving and even holding signs as they go by!

COVID Clinic Reminder 

Tuesday, June 8, 2021 at 2:30pm - 5:30pm
Greely High School



1. Do parents/guardians have to be present with their child(ren) at the vaccine clinic?
No, but your student will need to have their vaccination card in order to obtain the second dose.

2. How do I provide documentation of the vaccine? 
In order to exempt your child from quarantines due to close contact, you should send a copy of your child's vaccination record to your child's school nurse to have on file.  We will have a copier available at the second clinic for those who would like to make a copy to provide to the nurse while at the clinic.

3. Will I be charged for the vaccine? 
No.  Northern Lights may bill your insurance for vaccine administration but there will be no out of pocket costs to you. 

4. Can a parent/guardian attend with their child? 
Yes, one parent per student is allowed due to social distancing requirements.

5. Will my child have to wait after obtaining the vaccine? 
Yes, they will be observed for 15 minutes after obtaining the vaccine per the vaccine administration protocol.

6. I got my child vaccinated at another clinic. How can I provide you with the documentation you need in order to exempt my child from quarantine due to a close contact after their second dose?
You can either screenshot the vaccine card or fax a copy to us after your student has obtained the second dose.
