EPSD – Early Dismissal – 07 SEP 2023

We have been carefully monitoring the temperature in our classrooms for the last two days.  The safety and well being of students and staff are at the forefront of all decisions we make.  Late this afternoon RIDE offered districts options to deal with the excessive heat.  These decisions are never easy and there are many factors to consider when making them.  

After careful consideration, the district will close schools early tomorrow, Thursday September 7, 2023.  

Students will have access to breakfast and lunch and will receive three hours of instruction.

High School: 10:30AM dismissal

Middle School: 11:15AM dismissal

Elementary: 12:00PM dismissal  

No afternoon ELC classes 

We are coordinating bussing schedules to support the change in time. Please be patient as bussing times will need to  accommodate the early dismissal.

We will continue to monitor temperatures for Friday and will communicate if any additional changes to the schedule.
