Updated XQ-RI Press Release Updated. https://www.barringtonschools.org/article/204885?org=barrington-schools
The Rhode Island Department of Education is requiring a virtual learning plan from every District in Rhode Island in the event of emergency school closures. The District is currently working on a digital learning plan that we can implement. A key piece of information needed for this implementation is the type of access our students, especially K-5, have access to outside of school. Surveys were sent out this afternoon. Families with students grades 6-12 that do not have access to WiFi outside of school should contact David Burrows, Director of Technology at email@example.com so we can assess our district's limitations for planning purposes.

After the conference call, we will send out a more formal communication about events occurring throughout our District over the next few weeks. If Barrington receives additional information during the conference call, we will share that with you as well on our dedicated page: https://www.barringtonschools.org/article/198359?org=barrington-schools Sincerely, Michael Messore, III Superintendent Barrington Public Schools
