SHS Unified Plunge
The unified team will be participating in the Special Olympics unified plunge on Saturday, March 23rd at noon at Salty Brine State Beach.
Please consider joining our team and participating! Click the links below to participate or to make a donation.
SRO Ricciarelli is participating in the 2019 Super Plunge to support Special Olympics. A Super Plunge is a little different than the Unified Plunge that some of our students and teachers are participating in. Instead of plunging into the near-freezing water a single time, Super Plungers must plunge once per hour for a 24 hour period. Please consider supporting Officer Ricciarelli.
Important Message From the School Nurse
There has been an increase in the number of students and faculty ill with the Flu. If your child has been diagnosed with any illness, please report it to the school. We are trying to track and prevent illness.
There are everyday actions you can take to stop the spread of influenza!
- Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
- While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible with others to keep from infecting them.
- If you are sick with flu-like illness, please stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone (without the use of fever-reducing medications) except to get medical care or for other necessities.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
- Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.

Time is running out to complete the annual SureyWorks Parent Survey. Only 105 families have responded so far.
The Rhode Island Department of Education is currently administering its yearly SurveyWorks Parent Survey, which is an opportunity for parents to provide feedback about our school and our children’s opportunities to learn. The survey results are most useful when all parents participate, so we are writing to ask you to participate in this survey.
Your views on matters like the safety of your child at school, the way students are taught, the condition of the school, and how connected you feel to this school are important. By taking this short survey you can help our school leadership and our parent-teacher organization to make improvements to our school. Responses are anonymous and cannot be linked to any individual; no one can tie your responses back to you.
You can take the short survey online between January 14th and March 31st. To take the survey, visit: surveys.panoramaed.com/ride and enter the code 31107family
