As of 7:30 PM this evening, we have not received guidance from the Rhode Island Department of Health regarding whether we should continue with one more day of distance learning or if we can open school at Joseph L. McCourt Middle School tomorrow. Given these circumstances, we will continue with one more day of distance learning for our students tomorrow, Thursday, October 22nd. This will give students, staff and families an opportunity to plan accordingly. We hope to be able to provide information by the end of the day tomorrow regarding school on Friday.
We understand that this has created some uncertainty, but we will always prioritize the health and safety of our students and staff when we make a decision like this. We also appreciate the positive feedback that we have received from our families and constituents throughout this situation.
Superintendent of Schools
