In-Person Planning

Good afternoon all,

I wanted to take a moment to clarify Dr. McWilliam's important message below. The message is requesting parents to complete this VERY important survey. Families who would like to opt-out their children from returning to in-person school once students are cleared to return MUST complete this survey. This survey should be completed by all families PK-12 who are enrolled in the Pawtucket School District and are considering opting out their children from attending in-person learning.

I attached the directions to access the survey to complete this survey. If you are unable to log on, send me an email. The second option is to call our call center at 401.305.3787 to speak with a call center employee and indicate your preference. If you choose the Call Center, where an employee will take down your preference. If you leave a message, please state your name and phone number and your child’s name and a call center employee will return your call to record your response.


Good morning Pawtucket School Families,

This is Dr. McWilliams, Superintendent of Schools. I am calling with some very important information. As you know, at the December 15th School Committee, the Committee voted to prepare for an in-person learning for PK, Kindergarten, and special populations in their home schools beginning on January 19th, contingent on the community spread of the virus. As we prepare, we need your assistance to let us know if you are choosing to opt-out of in-person learning for your child(ren) when the phase in of in-person learning starts for your child(ren) at his/her grade level or specialized class. This information is important to us to prepare. If you do not want your child to return to in-person learning, you will opt-out by completing this survey by January 3, 2021. If you opt-out of in-person learning, this means that your child will remain on distance learning for the remainder of the school year.


There are two ways in which you can opt-out of in-person learning. The easiest and most efficient way is to use Skyward if possible. To do this, simply log into the parent portal of Skyward found on www.psdri.net from any device and indicate your preference on the online form. The second option is to call our call center at 401.305.3787 to speak with a call center employee and indicate your preference. If you choose the Call Center, where an employee will take down your preference. If you leave a message, please state your name and phone number and your child’s name and a call center employee will return your call to record your response.


Please note that your choice will be for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. Your response is needed by January 3, 2021, otherwise your child will automatically be assigned to return to in-person learning, based on the gradual, phased in approach and contingent on the community spread of the virus and when the School Committee deems it appropriate. We will unfortunately not be able to have students switch back and forth between in person and distance learning due to staffing and busing requirements.


Your assistance is greatly appreciated as we prepare.

Thank you,

Sincerely,

Dr. McWilliams
