Providence PlaySmart Heart Screenings Have Been Cancelled

Since that initial announcement, we have received notification that those screenings have been cancelled, with future screenings postponed until 2022. Please watch for future communications announcing when those screenings -- as well as other health screening opportunities for students -- are rescheduled.

Equity Visioning Committee - Applications Due Today

In last week’s emails from school principals, we shared with families that our district is currently seeking applications for parents/guardians and staff members interested in serving on the District’s Equity Visioning Committee. As a reminder, applications are due by the end of day today, October 8.

The SSD Equity Visioning Committee acts as a guiding committee to the Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and other district staff working toward equitable outcomes and inclusive practices. The Equity Visioning Committee includes students, parents and guardians, district staff, and community members. The make up of the committee purposefully includes a wide range of perspectives, working to represent historically underserved voices.
