UPDATE - Given the expected large crowd, the meeting is being moved from the Ellsworth City Hall Council Chambers to the Cafeteria at the Ellsworth Middle School. The Meeting will be held at 6 p.m.

Consistent with the provisions of the Framework to Return to School for 2021-22 plan approved by the Ellsworth School Board at its August 12, 2021 meeting, all those attending will be required to wear face masks and maintain spacing of three feet to the extent possible. Chairs will be set up three feet apart.


The Ellsworth School Board will host a special meeting on Thursday August 26th at 6 p.m.

The number 1 item under new business is Discussion of Mask Policy for Start of School.

The meeting will be broadcast on Spectrum Channel 1303 in Ellsworth and livestreamed to the Ellsworth School Department and City of Ellsworth You Tube Channels.

The School Board has 2 goals in mind

  • To keep the students, staff and faculty safe
  • To keep students in-school with in-person 5 day a week instruction.

There's no question that masking has divided Ellsworth as it has most other communities. Please if you are coming to speak at the meeting, do so respectfully. Don't raise your voice, don't make threats. You can advocate for your position without being disrespectful.  Children and teens are watching you. Make them proud of you as you speak.
