Maine’s Deaf Community is grieving deeply. We lost four of our cherished community members in last night’s Lewiston shootings, two of which were fathers of children in our educational programs. Our community is incredibly tight-knit, full of heart and pride. The fact that these men were together is who we are. Togetherness is what makes us strong and will hold us during this devastating time. The lives of those lost in the shooting will never be forgotten. We are holding their families, loved ones, and our community in our hearts. - 10/26/23, Karen Hopkins, Executive Director.

MECDHH/GBSD values parent and family involvement. We believe that you, as parents, know your child better than anyone. We welcome and encourage your input and involvement in all of our programs and services. There is nothing more powerful than a school and family working cooperatively.
