Classes Canceled at East End School and Deering High on Election Day Due to Expected High Voter Turnout

PORTLAND, Maine – Based on the recommendation of Superintendent Xavier Botana, the Portland Board of Public Education has voted to cancel classes for students at Deering High School and East End Community School on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8. Those schools are designated polling places and the high voter turnout anticipated during this year’s general election could disrupt student learning.
