School campuses, facilities closed to public through April 30

Town Manager Matthew Sturgis and School Superintendent Donna Wolfrom have announced the closure of the Cape Elizabeth school campuses and facilites to public use effective Thursday, April 2, until April 30, 2020. The closure is a continued effort to stop the spread of coronavirus and COVID-19.


Here is the text of their announcement:

In order to support Governor Mills' "Stay Healthy at Home" directive and in order to protect the public health and safety of our community in the face of COVID-19, we are announcing the closure of the Cape Elizabeth School Department campus.  The Governor's directive mandates that all citizens in the state of Maine "stay at home at all times unless for an essential job or an essential reason such as obtaining food, medicine, health care, or other necessary purposes."

All Cape Elizabeth School Department parking lots, track, and fields will be closed as of 12:01 AM on April 2, 2020 and will not open until April 30, 2020. While we realize that the campus is used by many citizens for the purpose of exercise and enjoyment, we have made this decision in an effort to protect the health and welfare of our community against the spread of the virus.  

We appreciate your cooperation and support in this effort and look forward to the day when we can all use the campus again.

Matthew E. Sturgis, Town Manager
Donna H. Wolfrom, Superintendent of Schools
