RI Youth Mental Health Archives
Rhode Island Student Assistance Services (RISAS) and the Rhode Island Department of Health have developed a YouTube Channel for Mental Health Archives dedicated to cataloging Trauma, Resilience, and General Mental Health webinars. The collection of self-paced videos can be privately watched from any device and are designed to help educate parents, school educators and school support staff about critical issues impacting children and youth.
Each webinar in the series is led by a trained expert (e.g. licensed social worker, child psychologist, suicide prevention specialist) and is centered on a specific aspect of mental health. RISAS/RIDOH will continue adding FREE training content to the Archive which can be accessed by subscribing to the channel and turning on notifications (the bell icon) HERE.

If your student receives a new device this year, and had insurance on the old device, you will need to notify the insurance company of the new device. Also the insurance policy must be renewed yearly.
Our food drive has been extended to ensure we can provide food to our community for the season. Thank you!
Important Protocol for Travel Plans and Returning to School
In advance of the holiday travel season, with an understanding of Governor Raimondo’s request for individuals to stay local, and with the potential impact on school operation the following requirements apply: All students and staff are required to quarantine for 14 days after returning to RI from international travel or travel to a US state where > 5% of COVID tests are positive. The RIDOH provides this updated list of states with a COVID-19 positivity rate higher than 5%.
The 14 day quarantine is necessary since COVID-19 can develop any time between 2-14 days after exposure. It is also required since a single negative test only indicates that you are negative at that point in time, but you could become infectious any time through day 14. The 14 day quarantine is the most effective way to reduce the risk of exposing other members of our school community to COVID-19.
1. As an exception, you may provide proof of a negative test for COVID-19 that was taken within the 72 hours prior to arrival in Rhode Island.
2. Self-schedule an asymptomatic test at a community-based testing location or through portal.ri.gov. Be advised that it might take several days to receive the test results and you must quarantine while waiting for a negative test result.
