CAMDEN, Maine (AP) - A Maine school district has implemented the state’s first-ever remote school day.

Superintendent Maria Libby announced Wednesday that Camden schools would take part in the first-ever remote school day for Maine public schools on Thursday. Administrators decided that two snow days this school year would be remote school days, when students are required to complete school work and teachers are required to be available via email from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Officials say elementary students will use the time to complete a project to present to their class, while middle and high school students will work on assignments and check in with teachers throughout the day.

School officials say accommodations are in place for students who don’t have internet access at home.
