Welcome to the Newport Public School Summer Communication Link! This new link will be the place to find the latest updates and news regarding our August 31 reopening date. This page will be updated as new information becomes available.
It is important to emphasize that reentry plans will continue to evolve throughout the coming weeks based on state and federal health guidelines. Your input is critical on additional surveys to request transportation or choosing a distance learning format for your child(ren). A final decision regarding school reopenings for the 2020-2021 school year will be made by the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) and Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) in mid-August.
As part of our communication efforts, Town Hall meetings will be held during the coming weeks. Meeting dates, agendas and related documents will be posted to this page with all of our latest information.
Stay safe and thank you for being a part of the Newport Public Schools Community.
Colleen Burns Jermain, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Newport Public Schools
