    LATEST NEWS FOR LEARNERS

     

    Safety Policies

    • Just as during the last school year, students will be required to wear masks and follow best practices in social distancing or stable groupings as precautions against the spread of COVID-19. Before entering the building, students will indicate with a thumbs up or thumbs down whether they have any symptoms of the virus. Students who exhibit symptoms during the school day will be isolated in the nurse’s office and sent home.
    • Additionally, each school site will offer optional COVID-19 rapid testing weekly; students must submit a permission form signed by their parents or guardians in order to participate.

     

    Meals

    • By participating in our summer learning program, your student will receive a free breakfast and lunch every class day.
    • Additionally, Providence Schools and the City of Providence are again teaming up with Sodexo food services for a summer meals program. Packages of multiple meals are available for pick-up on Tuesdays, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at Gilbert Stuart Middle School and Nathanael Greene Middle School. Daily meal distribution is also available at a number of city locations. Learn more at providenceschools.org/summermeals.

     

    Transportation

    • Elementary and middle school students who qualify for yellow bus service and registered by the transportation deadline have been notified and should have received a bus pass with their stop information. Any student under the age of nine who rides a yellow school bus must be met by an adult at the bus stop. If no adult is there to accompany the child, the child will be driven to the bus yard at 3 RICOM Way in Providence, and family will be called and asked to pick up the child. You may reach the bus yard at 401-943-7536.

    Specialized Services: If your child has an Individualized Education Program (IEP), you might be wondering if they can receive special education services during the summer. These services are known as extended school year (ESY) services and are an option for some students. Here’s what you should know about ESY services. ESY services are not the same thing as summer school. They’re specialized instruction or related services that are part of your child’s IEP. If your child receives ESY services, they’re at no cost to you, under FAPE. If your child is eligible, this will be listed in your child’s IEP. If you’re not sure and should have been registered by their case manager, please contact specialneeds@ppsd.org to confirm.
