As a reminder, the only hybrid instruction that will occur during the 2021-2022 school year will be for those students who have been isolated or quarantined by the District in collaboration with RIDOH, or those who have tested positive for COVID-19.
Quarantine due to travel, isolation imposed outside of the district, or typical sick days are not eligible for hybrid instruction.
Please review carefully.
Students must live beyond .75 of a mile to be eligible for the bus.

Nayatt School Lunch/Recess Monitors:
Nayatt is in need of lunch/recess monitors for the upcoming school year.
The role is from 11:15 AM-1 PM, usually 5 days per week, but some volunteers have split the position.
The monitors supervise lunch in the classroom for about 20 minutes or so depending on the grade level.
They also go out to recess to a designated area-playground, blacktop, basketball, etc. for about 25 minutes.
Please contact me at email@example.com if you are interested in helping us out in the upcoming school year.
It is a paid position, several of our Teacher Assistants started out as lunch/recess monitors.
The Barrington Public Schools will be recruiting for substitute teachers in the upcoming school year.
Please watch for information on School Spring RI.
We will have volunteers in our schools.
They must be vaccinated and have a current BCI.
Anita DiMatteo, the BPS Volunteer Coordinator, will be collecting and organizing this information.
Volunteer opportunities include room parents, guest readers, math and reading buddies, etc.
At the K-3 level, volunteers will not start in classrooms until Oct. 1st
Mrs. Bertoncini will be working with her library volunteer coordinator and these volunteers will be starting the school year with us.
