Community Update 10.16.2020
October 16, 2020
Dear Noble Community,
Last Friday, Governor Mills’ Administration, along with the Department of Education, updated County colors across the entire state. At that time, York County remained designated as Yellow Status due to the number of identified COVID 19 cases across the towns in the County. Today, Governor Mills’ Administration released an update for York County and three other counties across the state. York County is designated as Green.
This color designation shift from Yellow to Green does not impact the hybrid school model we are following right now, but it does have an impact on Noble High School Athletics. When a County is designated as Green, school athletics may occur in a very modified fashion following Health and Safety Guidelines established by the Maine Principals Association and “approved” by the Maine CDC and DOE. Our Athletic Director, Aaron Watson; Assistant Athletic Director, Aaron Moore; or our fall sport-specific coaches will be providing additional information over the next few days but we wanted to provide this timely update today.
Please also be aware that although York County is currently designated as Green, we will continue to be evaluated routinely (next Friday is another color designation). If at any point the County is designated as Yellow or Red we will reevaluate our sports plan.
This news today is an encouraging start!
Superintendent of Schools
