The Governor has announced that all RI schools will be closed for 1 week. The Governor and the RI Department of Health are moving April school break from April  13-17 to the week of March 16-20. This is to give school staff and central office time to finalize long-distance learning plans, alternative meal plans, and complete cleaning of schools. Additionally, all activities and events, including athletics, are canceled until further notice.

Dealing with COVID-19 is a week to week process in terms of planning for school.  RIDE has asked districts to submit virtual plans prior to March 19. Should the Governor close schools for a longer period of time, the virtual plans would be operationalized.

We shall continue to communicate with you via our community notification systems as further details arise.
