About Us

Whether you have been a part of our South School family for a while, or are new to our halls, we are pleased to see all the students here each and every day.  

The entire staff here at South School are determined to make this the best year yet.  We strive for academic excellence within a safe and friendly environment for all students.  We look forward to working with students, parents, and the community to achieve our goals and watch our students thrive!  

We strongly encourage parent involvement and ask all parents to be an active participant in their child's education.  Please have a conversation with your child about the meaning of following the 3 R's - Respect Yourselves, Respect Others and Respect your Environment.  These three concepts are the basis for creating an excellent academic and social environment and are a part of our daily school announcements and school wide expectations.  It is very important for children to hear this from both parents and teachers.  

We hope that you always feel welcome at our school.  We have a wonderful staff that genuinely cares about our students.  If you have a concern about your child's day, we encourage you to speak directly to his/her teacher.  Your child's teacher will let you know the best way to reach them.  You can find their contact information under our district's directory.  Additionally, twice a year, we have parent/teacher conferences.  This is a great time to discuss how your child is doing academically as well as socially.

As always, please feel free to contact us at any time!

Dear South School parents,

I am pleased to announce that we will be able to offer a “meet and greet” event for students and parents from 2:00 pm-3:00pm on Thursday, September 2nd.  This is a time for parents to meet teachers and for both parents and students to view their classrooms before the first day of school on September 7th.  
We will open up our school to parents for the first time since the pandemic began I am asking all who pass through our doors to adhere to our safety protocols by properly wearing a two-layer mask at all times and to socially distance as much as is feasible.  I also ask that families move through classrooms relatively quickly to avoid crowding and to minimize the COVID exposure risk to our teachers.  We are slated to open in full this year and I believe we can do it safely as long as we work together for the collective safety of our school and community.  

Can’t wait to see you!

Justin Bennett
South School Principal


 Note to Parents/Guardians:


South School Families,
If you have moved or need to change your child’s transportation plan, please notify us right away so that we have time to make that change prior to the start of school.  Keep in mind that it could take our transportation department up to 5 days to process a change.  
If you want to verify or change your child’s transportation plan, please call us at (207) 596-2020 or e-mail Mrs. Lessard at
Remember that daily transportation changes are not permitted.  If you are unable to be at the bus stop to meet your child’s bus, please make arrangements for someone else to be there.  In this case, you need to notify us or the transportation department (207-593-9066) of who that person will be.  Another alternative is to let us know that you will be picking your child up that day instead of them taking the bus.
We hope you had a great summer and we look forward to seeing you all again!



PLEASE CALL OUR COVID-HOTLINE at 593-3541 to report a positive staff or student COVID case during any non-regular school hours (nights, weekends, school vacations). 

Please continue to call the school directly during school hours to talk with a nurse if you receive positive results during normal school hours.
