RE: June 17, 2020 Annual Budget Meeting Precautions

Dear Community members,

This is a reminder that the Annual Meeting for the 2020-2021 RSU #38 budget will be held 

Wednesday, June 17, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in the Middle School gym and cafeteria.  

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic there are several health and safety considerations that I am sharing with you ahead of the meeting to assist your attendance at the meeting. Please note that these precautions are being taken from the Restarting Maine’s Economy Plan Covid-19 Prevention Sample Checklist as applied to a single budget meeting of an estimated duration of one hour or less. 

  1. Social Distancing will be used.  Chairs have been spaced 6 feet apart in all directions.

  2. We will be observing the 50 person limit in a gathering space so we have equipped the middle school Gym (2nd floor) and Cafeteria(1st floor) with appropriate accommodations for viewing, listening, communicating and voting.

  3. You may enter the building through the main entrance to the school for access to the gym (2nd floor) or may enter through the lower level parking lot door for the cafeteria (1st floor).  Town clerks will be waiting to check you into the meeting on both floors and will be wearing masks and gloves.

  4. Please park in the lower middle school parking lot for this meeting. There will be school employees directing traffic.

  5. At the meeting the expectation will be that masks are worn through the meeting unless you have a medical exception.  (If you need a mask one will be provided to you.)

  6. Hand sanitizer will be available and we respectfully ask that it be used when you enter the building.

  7. Minors will not be permitted into this meeting and unfortunately child care is not available.

  8. The meeting will be conducted as usual with minor adjustments to facilitate questions, pace of the meeting, and safe voting practices.

  9. Please note this meeting will be recorded and posted on our Maranacook YouTube account for later viewing.

Should you have any questions around the budget or the plans for the meeting please reach out to me at 685-3336 or through email at  We look forward to conducting our annual budget meeting per the guidance from the State of Maine.
