Other Bits of Information
Extended Day: Each year, the PTO offers an Extended Day program between February and April vacations. The PTO is always looking for people who would like to teach a six week course on either Tuesday or Thursday afternoons. Those who teach the course are paid by the PTO. If you are interested in teaching a course or if you have questions, you may contact Meg Raffa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Health Curriculum: Reminder, please consider completing the Official District Health Curriculum survey. The survey is open until January 18, 2018. Data will inform changes to the District Health Curriculum. You will find a presentation of the current topics at the top of the survey form. Click here to access the survey.
School Cancellations: With the winter upon us (and a big storm approaching), there could be days when school is cancelled. It’s easy to receive notifications via text when school is cancelled. If you are interested in signing up to receive texts from the Rhode Island Broadcasters Association, click here and follow the instructions.
Remind Text: From time to time, I will send out text reminders to parents. Examples of texts I send out would be information about buses running late, reminders about an event happening at our school, or school cancellations. It’s not too late to sign up to receive these texts. Information on how to receive these text notifications are attached below.
Community Notices: The district has a site with all of the Barrington community information on it. This a great way to see what is happening in Town. You can access that site here.
