Chariho Regional School District Updates April 9, 2021


Quarter 4 planning for the middle and high school students is almost complete. All families that have requested transportation during the registration process will be able to access a bus based on the updated Bus Guidance released from the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH).


As a reminder, if your child is registered for in-person learning the only time they should be accessing distance learning (DL) is if they have symptoms, are in quarantine/isolation, their class/district/school is placed on distance learning per the district/school administration or the child was registered for DL as their learning scenario.

Updates on Proms/Graduation/Spring Events

The Governor announced that he is supporting moving forward with in-person graduations, proms, and events. We will still need to follow guidance and protocol. However, we are excited to start to plan for these special events. We appreciate the patience of our families, as we know this news has been a long time coming.  Our principals will be the leads on all events.


Spreading Smiles in Chariho- Our April focus is Spotlight Chariho. In February, Chariho Regional Schools started a monthly spreading smiles initiative. Our April theme is focused on spotlighting/highlighting students and staff. We are asking everyone to show their support by finding ways to recognize a student and staff member. We are looking forward to all the ways our community will spread their smiles and spotlight Chariho students and staff! Tag @CharihoRegional on Twitter using #SpotlightChariho 


Travel

As many families are contemplating travel during April Break, we wanted to remind all families of our travel policy. Travel for the Chariho District is defined as going to another state to attend any event/performance, family gathering/party/reunion with people outside of your immediate household. It does not matter if it is overnight or a day trip. This is the preferred response of the RI Department of Health as well as what is required per our school committee-approved policy, as a negative COVID test only indicates that the virus is not currently present. In the event that there are families who must travel, we ask that you inform your school principal so that we can accurately record absences and communicate with our staff about attendance expectations and plans for continuity of education, upon return. As a reminder, students who travel out of state to any location with a positivity rate greater than 5% (those states are listed here, and the list is constantly updated) will require a 14-day quarantine upon return.
