Dear Parents and Families of Pawtucket School Department Students,
We are looking forward to welcoming our students to school on Wednesday, August 31, 2022. Please find attached an updated 2022-2023 School Calendar approved by the School Committee at the August 25th Meeting. Please take note of the change in April vacation from April 17th to April 10th. This change is due to the PSAT/SAT State Assessment schedule. Additionally, December 16th, March 31st, and April 7th are Professional Development days for Educators (no school days for students). These days are reserved for educators to receive specific training in the Science of Reading/Structured Literacy as required in RI Law Title 16-11.4-6, known as the Right To Read Act.
- It is important to prepare your child for school by establishing routines such as regular bedtime and rising schedules, morning routines, eating breakfast (schools continue to provide universal free breakfast).
- Updated information can be found on our website PSD Website and our Parent & Community Page. Additionally, we will continue to follow the CDC and RIDE Guidance for preventing the spread of COVID-19 as well as the flu and other viruses. Updated information can be found using this link Back2School RI
We look forward to seeing our students on the first day of school.
Superintendent of Schools
