Phase II plans, 3/24/20


Greetings to our students, families, and community members who are all part of our Panther family.  

Beginning on Wednesday, March 25th, 2020, as part of our CRP (Coronavirus Response Plan), we are transitioning to Phase II, which will lessen the number of contacts for our adult team members while continuing to meet the needs of our stakeholders.

These are the main differences as we begin Phase II of our plan:

  • Meal Delivery and pickup will continue to occur between 9:40 a.m.-12:00 noon on a new schedule of days: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

  • Meals will be delivered for multiple days at a time and pickups will work the same way:

    • Mondays - Meals distributed for both Monday and Tuesday

    • Wednesdays- Meals distributed for both Wednesday and Thursday

    • Fridays- Meals distributed for Friday.

  • Schools (front office areas only) and Central Office (355 S. Summer St.) will be open and staffed on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

  • All RISD buildings will be CLOSED all day on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

  • RISD personnel will be available by phone Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.; if your phone call is not answered, please leave a message, and we will get back with you.  

One major thing that will NOT change is that our NTI (Non Traditional Instruction) process will still be occurring daily through next Thursday, April 2nd.  Please understand that your child should be completing their March work by next week and that schools will be collecting that work either electronically or physically over the next few days as well as distributing the April work for your students.  Please remember that we will be celebrating our Spring Break from instruction for the days of April 3rd-April 10th, but we will continue food delivery on those Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during that time.  

As always, let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
