National Special Education Day is celebrated every year on December 2. This day commemorates the anniversary of our nation’s first federal special education law, the Individuals with Disabilities Act, signed by President Ford on December 2, 1975. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act made public education available to all eligible children with disabilities across the nation and ensured special education and related services were provided for those children. This law was a critical and necessary step on the path to making education and resources equitable for all children – a goal we are still working toward today. This day honors the milestones that have been achieved for special education so far and reminds us of the continued progress to come.
Wishing our Viking Family a happy and safe Thanksgiving break.

National Rural Health Day is an important, once-a-year opportunity to showcase rural America while focusing on the unique healthcare challenges facing an estimated 57 million rural citizens. Schools in rural and underserved areas play an important role in the health of students and the community. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has made a school nurse's role even more challenging. On November 18th let’s take time to recognize and thank our school nurses and their commitment to the health and safety of our staff, students and community of Eastern Aroostook RSU39.
Educational Support Professionals Day was established to honor and recognize the contributions of Education Support Professionals (ESPs) to public education institutions and to give the support staff the much-deserved respect and dignity for the professional work they do to ensure our public schools run effortlessly and that learning happens. Thank you for all you do for the staff and students of RSU39.

This week is National School Bus Safety Week. Here are some helpful tips from The National Association of Pupil Transport (N.A.P.T.) to keep everyone safe. Walking to the Bus Stop: • Walk young children to the bus stop or encourage children to walk in groups. There is safety in numbers; groups are easier for drivers to see. • Practice good pedestrian behavior: walk on the sidewalk, and if there is no sidewalk stay out of the street. If you must walk in the street, walk single file, face traffic and stay as close to the edge of the road as you can. • Stop and look left, right and then left again if you must cross the street. Do the same thing at drive -ways and alleys. Exaggerate your head turns and narrate your actions so your child knows you are looking left, right and left. At the Bus Stop: • Have children wait in a location where the driver can see them while driving down the street. Try to avoid waiting in a house or car. • Do not let children play in the street. Playing with balls or other toys that could roll into the street is also dangerous. Getting On and Off the Bus: • Warn children that if they drop something getting on and off the bus, they should never pick it up. Instead, they should tell the driver and follow the driver’s instructions. • Remind children to look to the right before they step off the bus. • If you meet your child at the bus stop after school, wait on the side where the child will be dropped off, not across the street. Children can be so excited to see you after school that they dash across the street and forget the safety rules.
National School Bus Safety Week is an active and evolving public education program and an excellent way for parents, students, teachers, motorists, school bus operators, school administrators, and other interested parties - to join forces and address the importance of school bus safety.
