  • Here is a link to the updated COVID-19 Protocols.

  • If you are experiencing difficulty accessing My School Bucks for lunch payment, please contact garabediank@barringtonschools.org. Please remind students that although you have paid online, they do still need to let their teacher know they would like to order lunch. They will then be given the options and select which lunch they would like. If students need milk only, they also must order this in the classroom as well.  


  • School Meals Outreach Toolkit

RIDE Child Nutrition Programs, in partnership with the RI Healthy Schools Coalition, is very pleased to share a School Meals Outreach Toolkit for the 2022-2023 school year.

Access to healthy school meals remains a priority during these challenging economic times but the meal benefit application process may be unfamiliar, confusing, or uncomfortable for some families. This Toolkit provides strategies to improve outreach and communication, including customizable templates for flyers, social media, and enews and a recorded, step-by-step video guide on how to complete an application (all available in English and Spanish).

All Toolkit resources, in both English and Spanish, are accessible through a google folder where they can be downloaded and customized and/or copied and pasted for use.

From the PTO: 

  • Here you will find the flier for the 1st grade Arts Alive program.  Registration will start on Tuesday, September 13th at 6pm. The program is limited to the first 25 students. If your child is interested, you can register online at www.artsalivebarrington.org.  

  • Families and staff - Join the PTO: Once you have filled out your family information in the PTO Directory, stay on the website and please consider Joining the PTO by clicking on the “Join” button. While any Nayatt parent can sign up in the PTO Directory and attend PTO meetings for free, paying $15 for a family membership allows you to become a voting member of the PTO. You may wonder, “Why should I join the PTO when I can go to the meetings for free?” Your $15 goes directly to the PTO to help fund items and activities that are purchased throughout the year to enrich and enhance the experience of Nayatt children and their families. These funds pay for field trips, school-wide presentations, author visits, library books and supplies, outdoor recess supplies (bowling balls and pins, basketballs, outside chalk and jump ropes), classroom bins and folders, reading week supplies, teacher week treats and staff activities, gardens and grounds improvement, and so much more! So please – take a moment and register your family in the PTO Directory and then Join the PTO! 

  • Enrichment enrollment will be happening soon and the only way to sign your child up will be via http://www.nayattpto.membershiptoolkit.com. Once you register by clicking on the Register/Login button, you will be able to fill out your family information, including putting your children in their respective class directory. The administration does not provide contact information for other families, so entering your child’s information is the only way for other classmates and room parents to get in touch with you.

Please let us know if you have any questions!

Have a wonderful day!
