    Summer Program Hours are:

    8:30AM – 4:30 PM, Monday through Thursday

    The summer program will run at Spruce Mountain Middle School.

    Students who attend RSU73 Summer School are welcome to join us after their morning academics.

    There will be no fee for this Summer Program.

    The summer program will provide fun, active, and engaging outdoor and indoor activities (when necessary) designed to maximize students' physical activity and to keep their brains from slipping into the summer slide.

    Attendance Requirement: If your child is accepted into the program and does not attend within the first week of programming, they will be removed from the program. Students must attend 3 out of 4 days each week to remain enrolled in the summer program.

    We will be following district COVID-19 safety protocols in place at the time summer programming begins. COVID-19 safety protocols will be adjusted as necessary according to the district's guidelines.

    Transportation will not be provided, except for field trips, due to a lack of drivers. All students will need to be dropped off and picked up by a parent/caregiver.

    Care to join us? We hope you will!! Please fill out an application for each of your children if you'd like to be considered for the summer program. Please call Doug Saunders at 207-779-7595 with any questions.
