** COVID-19: During this global health crisis, please contact me via email if you have ANY concerns, questions, worries, needs, and if I cannot help you myself, I will be able to direct you to someone who can. I am prepared to offer resources if you need them, and am happy to help in any way possible, if only just to ease your mind. We'll get through this!

* If you are a student or staff needing a Covid test due to symptoms or being identified as a close contact, call 844-857-1814. 
* If you want to schedule an asymptomatic test (just to be sure!) visit portal.ri.gov to schedule it.


FLU CLINIC was a big success!  On Monday 10/26 we saw and vaccinated over 100 community members (many students and staff) against the flu! If you haven't had your shot yet, call your primary provider's office or stop in a CVS or Walgreen's and get yours!!

Not sure whether to send your child to school or not? When in doubt...

And this year of course we have to add to that. Children should not come to school if they have a headache, sore throat, nausea, cold or allergy symptoms. They will unfortunately, have to be sent home in those cases and cannot return until they have had no symptoms for 24 hours, which in most cases means missing a second day! You'll also be given an After Illness Return Attestation form that you'll have to send back into school with them.


NO GAITORS and BUFFS for your children. It MUST be a face mask.
