At the annual Maine Association for Pupil Transportation "Safe and Secure" Conference held at Sugarloaf this summer, Beverly A. Hooper was recognized for the Above and Beyond Award with a plaque and a $100 check. She was also awarded a Lifetime Membership to MAPT which allows her to keep active in the school bus transportation field. Our team commends Bev for all she has done for MSAD #35, this award is well deserved and attests to her commitment in serving the South Berwick and Eliot communities. Bev has been a bus driver and the Transportation Director with 29 years of dedication. She currently is enjoying retirement and playing bus driver for her family.
MSAD #35s team of drivers attended this 1 1/2 days conference which included a bus rollover enactment. Though the likelihood of this occurring is extremely rare, it provided an opportunity for our drivers to witness how emergency responders would react. Numerous workshops were attended offering new information critical in aiding drivers in performing their duties which includes their #1 concern, safety of their passengers. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to attend this workshop as well as the support from the School Board in making this possible.
Our team welcomes Kathy Jean “Kitty” Roberts as our new Transportation Director (MSAD #35 & #60). Kitty has worked in the transportation field for 17 years, first as a bus driver, and most recently for the past 7 years as a dispatcher, office manager/assistant director. Her knowledge and experience brings new ideas to assist both district’s individual transportation needs. Welcome Aboard Kitty!

Subject: Exposure to Pertussis
Date: September 13, 2013
The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Maine CDC) is investigating a case of pertussis also known as (whooping cough) at Marshwood High School.
Pertussis is an illness that is spread from person to person through coughing and sneezing. Pertussis usually begins with symptoms of a common cold (sore throat, and runny nose) and often develops into a severe cough after a few weeks. The cough can last for several weeks or more. Most children are vaccinated against pertussis, but it is still possible for vaccinated children to become ill. Babies are most at risk of serious illness.
To prevent the spread of pertussis in our community, we are making the following recommendations:
1. If your child has or severe cough (may include coughing to the point of gagging, vomiting after coughing or difficulty breathing) or a prolonged cough lasting 2 weeks or longer, please take your child home and contact your health care provider. If your provider suspects pertussis, they will obtain a specimen to be sent for pertussis testing.
2. Children/Adults with severe cough, prolonged cough or confirmed pertussis will be started on antibiotics and will need to remain at home for 5 days while taking these antibiotics.
3. Please check with your medical provider to be sure you and your child are up-to-date on pertussis vaccine. Most children have had vaccine before the age 7 years, but their immunity to the disease may gradually wane over time. Booster shots (Tdap) are now recommended for children 11-18 years old. A single Tdap shot is also recommended for adults, especially adults who have contact with infants and young children.
If you have further questions, please contact Susan Gagnon, RN at Marshwood High School at 207-384-4500 or the Maine CDC at 1-800-821-5821.
