Enterovirus Fact Sheet

As many of you are aware, there has been a deadly outbreak of Enterovirus.   We hope that all cadets are taking precautions to protect themselves from the spread of this and other contagious diseases. In light of this particular virus, we have disinfected surfaces in our buildings with a specialty cleanser that kills germs on contact.  We also wanted everyone to read some facts about this virus to ensure that Maritime will not have any cases of this deadly disease.   Please click on the link for important information regarding Enterovirus.

Attention Parents

Today at approximately 12:00 there was an odor that permeated our school. It was not a natural gas odor. The school was evacuated while the situation was investigated. It has been determined that the odor is due to the construction and many construction vehicles that are working on the I-95 project close to our school. Please be assured that in the event that we feel any of our students are in a harmful situation we will evacuate and dismiss the students from school. If that happens we will send a robo call to your home and post the information on our website. If you have any questions or concerns please call or email me at 215.427.3090 or orosz.k@maritimecharter.org.
