Graduation Info from RIDE for Class of 2014 & 2015

Important info regarding opening of school

Due to Hurricane Irene, the opening of school will be delayed one day.  The teacher professional development day will take place in Tuesday (8/30) and the first day for students will be on Wednesday (8/31).  Freshmen orientation will take place on Tuesday evening (8/30) from 6-8:30 pm.

I recommend that you sign up for text alerts so that you may get additional info should the power go out.  If the cell towers get blown over  then it won’t matter but check out to sign up. Please check the website, Facebook, Twitter, or school blog for additional updates.  

Additional notes:

Some hurricane humor:
How do hurricanes see?  With one eye. 
Seriously, take it easy this weekend and be safe.  See you next week!
