Dear Clayville Families,

As promised, weekly newsletters are being sent in an effort to keep our Clayville community up to date with the latest school reopening information. Some of the information in this week's newsletter is new, while other pieces were shared last week and serve as a resource and reminder. Please visit the "Newsletter" tab under "About Us" to view the most recent newsletter.
Governor Raimondo and Commissioner Infante-Green announced the two-week delay of the first day of school. The decision was made to give districts more time to put plans in place, and for the RI Department of Education (RIDE) to further engage with RI communities. It was also announced that three professional development days have been scheduled for September 9th-11th. Scituate Schools will include an extra PD day, which means our staff will start on September 8th. Students first day of school will be September 14th. Please note, the extra professional development days for Scituate Schools have not been added. I will send along out our district calendar once it has been updated.

Our reopening task force and our administrative team continues to work on our reopening plans to ensure we are ready for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. As always, please reach out with any suggestions, questions, or concerns. Thank you for your ongoing support.

Courtney Francis
