Dear RSU 1 Staff and Families,

Our pooled testing program starts this week in RSU 1.  Today, Morse High School and Bath Tech were scheduled to test all of the students and staff who opted in from 8:30 - 2:00 pm.  Unfortunately, the Department of Education’s company, Concentric by Gingko, did not have the two new RN’s computer systems properly set up even though RSU 1 had done all aspects of the organization for which we were responsible.  Given this, testing began on the Morse/ Bath Tech campus at 12:30 pm today and not all pools were completed.  We are working with the company this afternoon/evening in hopes that we will be able to follow through with our plan to begin pooled testing this week in RSU 1 schools.  We want testing to be as smooth as possible to ensure no instruction time is lost which might mean delaying the start until Concentric has the issues worked out. Thank you for your flexibility as we all figure out this new system for our schools.  We will continue to keep you updated.
