Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update and Important Information

The East Providence School District is following the guidelines established by the RI Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  We are in constant communication with Dr. Alexander-Scott and members of the RI Department of Health.

A press conference was held on Sunday, March 1, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. where Dr. Alexander-Scott reiterated that there is a low risk for COVID-19 in Rhode Island at the present time.  Dr. Alexander Scott said it was highly unlikely to be infected from contact with a secondary contact who is not showing symptoms.

As a precautionary measure during the flu season, the East Providence School District sanitized all schools during the February break.  We are continuing with our preventative cleaning and sanitation throughout all of our schools.  Our buses are also being sanitized and will continue to be sanitized daily.

Our efforts are being informed and coordinated by the RI Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, based on facts, science, and epidemiology. We have attached guidelines regarding preventative measures to keep everyone well.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Head Nurse, Ms. Diane Wallace at 433-6230 extension 2.  Please see the RI Department of Health website for more information: https://health.ri.gov/.
