Nayatt Road Improvement Project.
Message is from the Rhode Island Department of Transportation:
Nayatt Update Saturday 11/17 & Week of 11/19
Depending on the impact of the upcoming weather, we may need to continue paving work on Saturday 11/17 and possibly into early next week. During paving operations, Nayatt Road will be closed from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm. Motorists should follow the signed detour and message boards. On Monday, it is anticipated that we will begin drainage operations which will extend thru Wednesday, 7:00 am to 3:30 pm. After the holiday on Thursday, drainage work will resume on Friday. Most of the drainage work next week will utilize alternating traffic lane shifts. All work is weather dependent. Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for your patience.
RIDOT will accommodate bus traffic through the construction zone,no detour for school busses.
Police detail officers and construction crews will accommodate local residential traffic…i.e. if someone needs go through the zone to drop off someone or pick up someone…they will allow them to go through. They may need to stop and just tell the detail officer. RIDOT’s goal is to be as least disruptive as possible.
RIDOT would prefer that general commuting traffic follow the local detours to Maple Ave or directed to other local roads…i.e. such as Gov. Bradford depending on the location of the work. The operation will be a linear, starting at Middle Highway and going to approximately Collins Ct / Water Way area.
At the end of each day, there will be a compacted gravel surface for motorists to drive on. You will need to drive slowly and carefully through the alignment. All work and schedules are weather dependent.

Dear Wiz Families!
We are making great progress! Well done to the kids who have been working on their lines at home - it really shows and helps when we put the scenes together. REMEMBER, IF YOU ARE NOT CALLED TO REHEARSAL, SPEND TIME AT HOME REVIEWING YOUR LINES :)
Rehearsals this week:
How can I help my child prepare?
Run lines with them & practice their songs!
Make sure they are taking notes in their scripts with regards where they enter/exit and any blocking! This will help them remember!
Some additional important notes:
Please carefully review the Rehearsal Schedule and make a note of when your child will be called to rehearsal. (Note individual names are alpha-sorted by FIRST name.)
Please visit the Nayatt School page of the Arts Alive website to access music (as well as other important info). Password: nayatt2019
Once we start working scene to scene, kids should come to rehearsals knowing their lines! They will be expected to learn lines at home! A little bit of work goes a LONG way!
Children should also bring a peanut-free SNACK as well as their SCRIPT and a pencil to every rehearsal
Rehearsals end at 4:30pm for 2nd & 3rd graders and 4pm for 1st graders. Please be on time to pick up your child. We appreciate your respect to our staff and parent volunteers. Note our Dismissal & Late Pick Up Policy.
We are well and truly off to see the Wizard!

See Saw at Nayatt School
An important component of the Barrington Public Schools Strategic Plan is the practice of self-reflection by students and staff. Self-Reflection helps learners to assess their own learning. Through self-assessment and reflection learners learn to assess their own learning for the purpose of improving it. See Saw is a tool that helps us to practice reflection with our students. We are in the beginning stages of this work as we implement See Saw, but this tool has tremendous potential for expanding the potential of our children to learn and grow.
Special thanks to Ms. Taft and Ivy Miliken along with the PTO Garden and Grounds Team for working with our students to plant bulbls around the school that will bloom in the spring.
