Mt. Blue regional school district receives grant to increase school safety

By Donna M. Perry, Sun Journal

FARMINGTON, Maine — All RSU 9 schools will have large numbers on exterior doors to help emergency responders identify which one to use.

The Mallett and Mt. Blue High Schools already are labeled.

David Leavitt, director of the district’s support services, received a $2,500 grant from the Department of Homeland Security to buy the numbers for the remaining schools, Leanne Condon, assistant superintendent/director of curriculum, told the school board Tuesday.

She also announced that Mardie Porter, a special education teacher at the Mallett School, was awarded another Sugarloaf Regional Charitable Trust Grant, this time for $500. The grants are funded by Sugarloaf employees.

Porter received more than she requested, Condon said, because the charitable trust has been impressed with how efficiently she and the program have used the money.
