Dear Parent/Guardian,

In conjunction with RSU 68, Foxcroft Academy will remain closed until at least April 27th and will continue with online instruction. This is being done with guidance from the DOE and the CDC. April 20th- 24th will still be designated as “April Break.”

I would like to thank parents and students for adjusting to receiving online instruction. I encourage you to email teachers if you have questions or are in need of help. Please also make sure that you contact Foxcroft Academy Counseling Services if you need assistance. I am very pleased with how the staff and faculty have responded to the transition to online learning and how the students are adapting to the new delivery of instruction.

A few reminders:
  • If you are in need for something to be delivered by Rowell’s or Weymouth’s bus services, continue to contact Ms. Weatherbee ( or Ms. Tammy Smith (
  • The drop off points for breakfast/lunches have been announced as follows:
    • In Sebec: The Event Center
    • In Charleston: The Community Center
    • In Monson: The Town Office
    • In Dover Foxcroft: SeDoMoCha and Foxcroft Academy
  • Lunch and Breakfast can be picked up at the above locations between 10 am and 12 noon.
  • If you call Foxcroft Academy and the phone call is not answered, please leave a voicemail and your message will be responded to in a timely manner.
  • Information will be forthcoming concerning the end of the third quarter, senior presentations, and continuing to meet requirements.
“These are the times,” as Thomas Paine memorably wrote in 1776, “that try men’s (people’s) souls.” Through these trials, we will be a much stronger and better community.

Ride on Ponies,

Arnold Shorey, Head of School
