Good evening this is James Tager, Superintendent of the Bangor School Department. A snow day whispers tales of endless play, A treasured pause in life's demanding way. With hearts aglow, we savor winter's art, And let the snowflakes etch upon our hearts. Due to the impending winter storm forecast for tomorrow for the Penobscot River Valley area I have decided to call a snow day for all Bangor School Department schools on April 4, 2024. All BSD student activities scheduled for Thursday are canceled. For the safety of everyone in the BSD community and to give families time to make plans for tomorrow, I feel that making a decision tonight is best. Be safe.

Holy week Is the week between Palm Sunday and Easter that encompasses the three most sacred days in the Christian church calendar. It begins at sundown on Holy Thursday, (also known as Maundy Thursday, observed in commemoration of Jesus Christ's institution of the Eucharist during the Last Supper) reaches a high point at the Easter Vigil, and concludes with evening prayer at sundown on Easter Sunday. Easter is the oldest Christian holiday and the most important feast of the ecclesiastical year, held on the first Sunday that follows the first full moon of the Spring Equinox. The date therefore changes each year and falls on any day between March 22 and April 25. Easter has deep significance for Christians and represents rebirth and renewal. Happy Easter!

Good morning this is James Tager, Superintendent of the Bangor School Department. Due to current road conditions, the Bangor School Department will have a two-hour delay for all schools March 21, 2024. This delay will help to ensure the safety of our students and staff during the morning commute. I received this poem from one of our international students: Snow! Snow! Snow! As it floats down And fills the ground. I turn happy It’s pretty And all white! How beautiful is the earth covered in a white blanket? It mesmerizes me! Snow! Snow! Snow! I love snow!
