SurveyWorks is here!

The SurveyWorks survey is happening now! The window will be open from February 3 - February 14 for all. Please take a moment to provide your feedback about the great things happening at Ferri.

Attendance Matters!

Please ensure your student is in school every day and on time to promote academic success!

Based on the student handbook, students that are tardy 3 times will receive a 2 hour detention. We have begun counting tardies on October 1st.

We appreciate your help to get students to school on time.

Starting in October, we will be using the Attendance Nudge, a tool from the RI Department of Education. Parents will receive notification regarding student absences informing them of the amount of school students have missed compared to other students in their grade.

It is essential that students attend school everyday!
