Throughout this challenging time, we continue to work closely with the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) and the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) to ensure the health and safety of our school community. Remember, this is the time to stay home, focus on your schoolwork, practice social distancing, and wash your hands regularly. If you are concerned that someone in your house may be coming down with symptoms, you should immediately call your primary care doctor, or local walk-in clinic, to arrange a test. In the last few days, we have learned that a member of our school community has tested positive for COVID-19. While our virtual learning model eliminates contact within our school community, we remind our students and staff to continue to follow recommended guidelines in their interactions with others to prevent the spread of this highly infectious illness.
