East Providence School Dept. - Transportation Office - 401-270-8232 East Providence school bus transportation will always center on providing safe, responsible and effective transportation for our students. The 2023 - 2024 transportation schedule can be found by school at the below link. We currently service eligible students to twelve East Providence Public Schools, twenty-six private and parochial schools, and twenty-six outside special education placement schools in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

Transportation Announcements

  • As many of you know, Martin Middle School will be under construction beginning the start of this ‘23-24 school year. Therefore, in order to lessen traffic and improve time delays, caused by the impending construction at both drop off and dismissal, we have reduced the mileage restriction from 1.5 miles to 1.0. This results in any students living more than a mile (not 1.5 miles) away from the school are eligible to take the bus. You will not need to complete an appeal. The intention and hope is that parents currently driving their children to school will depend on the bus for transportation. We are in the process of routing all students affected by this change. This information as well as all bus routes will be published on the East Providence School Department website, your child’s Skyward account, and in the East Providence Post. Please note: this mileage change only affects Martin Middle School. If unsure as to your distance or have any questions or concerns, please contact the transportation department at 401-270-8232.

Eligible Riding Distances

ELC @ Oldham - Special Needs - Door to Door Grades K - 5 must live over 1.0 mile Grades 6 - 8 - MMS must live over 1.0 mile Grades 6 - 8 - RMS must live over 1.5 mile Grades 9 - 12 - EPHS must live over 2.0 mile


We will accept appeals for the SY 2023-2024. Below are the requirements for appeals:
  • Transportation will be taken every day from the same bus stop; no changes will be granted.
  • An Appeal will grant transport upon availability.
  • Bus stops are developed based on the number of students and mileage restriction set forth by the EP School Committee.
  • Appeal forms, along with proof of residency, must be filed with the EP School Transportation Dept. - ANNUALLY.

    • Transportation Appeal Form

    Private/Parochial/Charter School Transportation

    Transportation requests must be completed and submitted no later than August 1, 2023. Residency Verification is required annually, and must accompany the Request form. After this date, we will accept requests; however we cannot guarantee service will be in place by the beginning of the school year.
  • Registration Information

    We would like to welcome you and your child to the East Providence School Department. We are all excited to be part of your student’s academic future. Please call the Registration Office at 401-383-5745. The Registration Office is located at Door 2 - 1998 Pawtucket Avenue, East Providence, RI 02914. We have included the required list of documents you will need on this page. Requirements for Registration
    • ONLY the Parent/Guardian must register the child;
    • Child's Birth Certificate
    • Health Records (Proof of Immunizations)
    • Prior School Records (transcripts, report card, 504, IEP)
    • Residency Verification (See note below and Residency Procedures)
    RESIDENCY VERIFICATION The East Providence School Department requires that all parents and/or guardians provide current residency verification for students enrolled in their community public schools on an annual basis. Residency verification requested is a copy of a current lease agreement, or mortgage statement - both of which requires the address to be visible on the document. In the event, you do not have either a lease agreement or mortgage statement, and may be residing with extended family, a  Residency Affidavit must be completed. The Affidavit is a legal document which is completed by the owner of the address you reside at, and confirms you and your child(ren) are presently living at the premises. Please contact your child's school or Central Office Registration (401-383-5745) with any questions you may have regarding the verification process. PARENTAL REQUESTS Parental Requests for a different school have been allowed in the past. This year, while requests can be submitted, the priority is to maintain all students in their home schools. By doing so, neighborhood friendships and communities are strengthened. Requests will be taken until June 25th, at which time they will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Parents will be notified in August if the request has been granted. NOTE: Parental requests are not eligible for bus service.

    Parenting Partners Program

    We know that parents play an important role in their child’ success in school. Therefore we invite parents to partner with our schools in order to help improve academic, social, behavioral and emotional success for their children. The East Providence School Department is happy to announce a parent engagement program called “Parenting Partners”. This program will currently be offered at all Title I schools. A team of educators at each building has been trained to organize and facilitate workshops for parents/guardians. Each session lasts 8 weeks and covers a different topic. The sessions will be ongoing so everyone who would like to participate will get a chance over the course of the school year. The list of topics covered at each 8 week session includes: • Positive Parenting: Success Starts at Home • Creating Confident Kids • Communication That Works • Creating Structure for Agreement • Discipline - Practice for Success • What Children and Teens Need to Know • Parents Involved for Academic Success • Parent Graduation Ceremony! You will receive notification from the team at your child’s school regarding when the session will be offered at each particular school. We hope you will join us in this important partnership!   Programa de Asociacion Para los Padres Programa para Pais Click here for more information about Parenting Partners
    Dear East Providence Families,

    Research shows that over the summer students can lose many important skills while away from the classroom. This is called the “summer slide”. In order to make sure your children are ready for next year, please use this on-line resource to provide summer learning opportunities at home and/or at your public library.

    We hope you and your family have a wonderful summer!

    The East Providence School District is pleased to announce that we have revised our elementary report card for all students in kindergarten through grade 5.

    We believe that this standards-based report card will provide families with more detailed information regarding your child’s progress towards grade level goals.
