Bathroom Project Complete

We are pleased to announce that the renovations to the bathrooms on the main floor of the high school are complete and will be open for students beginning on Monday, April 8th.

Thank you all for your support and patience as this project took shape. Thank you to our Director of School Facilities, Robert Corrente for all of his hard work as well.

Now that these brand new bathrooms are ready for use, we are strengthening our protocols to ensure they stay in great shape for years to come. Beginning on Monday, students will be required to sign out of their classroom with a destination, reason, date, and time. The bathrooms will also be monitored by administration and staff on a regular basis. If students are loitering in the area, using a tobacco product such as an e-cigarette or Juul, or it is proven that vandalism has taken place, then disciplinary actions will be followed without hesitation. We appreciate your partnership as you have these conversations with your teenager.

Again, the bathrooms are a fantastic new addition to our amazing school and our students deserve the best!

Thank you for your support

Spartan Athletics

Spring sports are finally underway. All athletes are registered and rosters have been finalized. Third quarter eligibility will be confirmed next week.

WEATHER As you all know Spring weather in New England is extremely unreliable. It changes day to day and sometimes minute to minute. Cancellations are sometimes tricky and sometimes unavoidable. Please stress to your athlete that he/she should dress appropriately and pack layers so that they are prepared for the quickly changing conditions.

Do not hesitate to reach Sal Gelsomino any time at or you can contact me at (401) 647-4120 X4124

New England Student Leadership Conference


Each summer, student-athletes and school activities participants from RIIL member schools have the unique opportunity to network with students from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont at the annual New England Student Leadership Conference. This year’s event will be conducted July 16-19,2019 at Worcester State University.

Students who are entering grades 10, 11, or 12 in the fall of 2019 are encouraged to apply for a spot in this conference.

In addition to the curriculum sessions, conference attendees from Rhode Island, that are entering their junior or senior year, will have the opportunity to learn about, and apply for a position on the 2019-2020 RIIL Student Advisory Committee.

Incredible attention is being paid to high school athletics and activities programs today. Participants in these programs are looked up to as leaders because of their position on the team or club. The impact that these young people have on the climate and culture of their schools, fellow students and community is tremendous. In fact, studies show that more than one-half of high school students participate in some form of school activity or athletic program. The involvement of these students in the success of a high school is paramount and critical.
