The mission of the Warwick Public Schools, working cooperatively with families and the community, is to provide challenging learning environments that enable all students to develop skills and knowledge necessary to become self-directed, life-long learners, highly productive responsible citizens, and contributors to a technological and diverse society.

The Aspen Family Portal is Now Open!
The Aspen Family Portal is open as of October 1, 2013. Each family will receive instructions for a parent family account either by e-mail or a paper document sent home with each child.
We encourage all families to login with their parent account. Verify your child's and family data. Please notify the school using the e-mail address on the instructions with any updates. Please provide a family or parent e-mail address to the school if you have not done so in the past.
Background Checks Now Required for School Volunteers
The governor has signed legislation last week to require any individuals who are current or prospective volunteers of a school department and who may have direct or unmonitored contact with children or students on school premises to undergo a state criminal background check.
If you are planning on volunteering at your school for the 2013-14 school year, please obtain your BCI check soon! This includes volunteering for PTA program/events, volunteering in your child's classroom, and chaperoning for field trips. Please note that you will not be able to volunteer in any capacity in any school if a state criminal background check is not completed.
There are a couple of options available to obtain a state criminal background check (BCI):

It is already mid-August and schools will be opening in just a couple of weeks. I hope students and school staff have enjoyed their time off.
The district has many projects which continue throughout the “summer months.” School improvement projects such as fire code upgrades and routine summer maintenance are all on target and all schools will be ready to open on time.
The central enrollment registration, located in the Warwick Avenue Administration building, has been a huge success. I have been informed that registration is on task and up-to-date with all registrants. The registration office telephone number is 734-3086 and open year round to assist parents with registrations, transfers and transportation.
Please enjoy the remainder of your summer and I look forward to seeing everyone when I visit the schools upon your return.
