Needless to say, the past couple of years have been hard for everyone involved within our Maine school systems, as the nasty COVID-19 pandemic has forced remote learning, cancellations, postponements, and of course has brought on sickness as well.

So, kudos to your local McDonalds for offering up a free "Thank you breakfast meal" to all educators this week, including teachers, administrators, and other school staff members.  This free offer ends following breakfast this Friday, October 15th.

Just pull into any McDonalds during breakfast hours and show a valid work ID, and you'll get to choose from either an Egg McMuffin, a sausage biscuit, or a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit.  Educators will also receive hash browns and a medium premium-roast coffee with their order, according to an official press release from McDonalds.

“Together with our Owner/Operators, we're proud to serve the people who make our communities a better place, and this is an important time to say thank you to some of our everyday heroes,” said Joe Erlinger, President, McDonald’s USA.
