2021-2022 Academic Calendar Released

After careful consultation and review, we have released the Academic Calendar for the 2021-2022 school year. As with so much during this pandemic, these dates are subject to change based upon updated guidance from the Department of Health.


Please note, we have made every effort to align our academic calendar with public school districts and the state-wide RIDE Calendar; however, we have not adopted the "virtual learning professional days" utilized by the public school districts.


Order your 2020-2021 Yearbook!

Yearbooks for this certainly unforgettable year ready to order! You can order online by visiting ybpay.lifetouch.com and using the Yearbook Code 1866621. See the flyer here for additional ordering information. Yearbooks are traditionally delivered over the summer and distributed in the Fall.


Updated Middle School Office Hours

We're grateful to our middle school team for offering weekly office hours. We have had to make a slight change to the schedule. You can find the updated hours here. Thank you!


Read-a-thon Results are In!

We're thrilled to announce that our Read-a-thon raised a total of $4,794 - surpassing our $4,000 goal! We're so grateful to everyone who participated this year. A reminder that these funds will support the purchasing of new English Language Arts and literacy materials for our 3-5 and 6-8 grade level groupings. Thank you for your support, and thank you to Mrs. Adamo for all of her efforts in organizing the event!


Summer Camps are Back!

We're excited to be offering a wide array of summer camps this year! You can learn more about our camps, and complete an electronic registration, by checking out the Summer Camp Newsletter here. Please note that spots are limited, so register soon!

Donnelly's Uniform Ordering - 2021-2022 School Year

Donelly's is currently offering some great discounts for uniforms for the 2021-2022 school year. All purchasing can be done online, and uniforms can always be exchanged for correct sizes, as needed. You can find more information about ordering and discounts by checking out the flyer here.


Got Ink?

Do you have used ink cartridges at home? Father Doyle School is partnering with Planet Green Recycling to recycle use ink cartridges. The best part? It's entirely hassle free - all you have to do is drop your ink used ink cartridges off in the main office. We'll package and ship them to Planet Green, who ensures cartridges are properly recycled. Ultimately, the program helps save the environment and supports the school! Find out more here.


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!


Sincerely,

Mr. Peloquin

Hybrid Learning & Distance Learning Policies

As shared with families via email we have updated our Hybrid Learning and Distance Learning Policies and Procedures. You can find those changes outlined in the documents attached below, as well as linked here:

Hybrid Learning Letter to Families

Hybrid Learning Quick Guide

Distance Learning Opt-In Dates


In addition, you can view a brief video summary of the updates here. We hope these changes will help make hybrid and distance learning increasingly manageable and effective for staff, students, and families alike!

Probable Cases & Testing Procedures

The Department of Health has released additional resources for families regarding how to proceed if your child has symptoms at home or becomes ill at school. You can find the RIDOH Resources for Families here. Please note, if your child is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 that indicate a probable case, please call 844-857-1814 from 7:30am-9:30pm seven days a week to schedule a test through the K-12 Testing Network. You should also notify the school as soon as possible.


If your child is experiencing symptoms and is being tested, two tests will be conducted at the K-12 testing site - a rapid test with results within 24 hours, and a PCR test with results within 48 hours. Please note, students are not permitted to return to school until both tests are negative and symptoms have resolved. In addition, families must complete the After Illness Return Attestation Form which can also be found on the homepage of our school website under "Important Links."


A reminder that our hybrid learning policies for students absent due to illness or quarantine can be found in our Hybrid Learning Guide for Students and Families as well as in a quick reference guide here.

Aluminum Can Tab Collection


What: Aluminum can tabs are being collected


Why: To support the Ronald McDonald House in Providence


How can you help? Save can tabs and send them in to Mr. Godin’s room.

Bottle Cap Drive


We’re excited to share that our school is part of the Coca-Cola Give program. This provides new funding opportunities to help improve learning environments for students. The best part? Donations don’t come out of your own pocket. When you make Coca-Cola purchases, you simply send in bottle caps or product codes from boxes of beverages and our school receives a donation.


All caps and codes should be sent to Mr. Godin. Codes will be entered on one account to gain larger and quicker donations.


Thank you!
