WINTER BREAK: FEBRUARY 18-22


Dear Parents:

Well now we can all say we survived the Blizzard of 2013 (some of us are also survivors of 78’ as well). I hope everyone did not suffer too much in the way of loss of power, though it did get awful cold that Saturday night without any heat! With the official day of spring not too far off (33 days away, but who’s counting), we hope to get through the rest of the winter without any further school closings. Believe it or not, but a robin has been outside my window since I started writing this letter. Either he/she didn’t get the memo last fall on where to go, or he/she knows something we don’t!

I’m glad everyone realizes now that we do not follow either Cranston or Providence School Districts. Though we may be similar in our school closing or delays, we still have the option of going our own way nevertheless.

Our monthly Newsletter will be coming out later this month, but in the meantime, please check the attached school calendar on any events on the days ahead.

Just so you will always know when we have a delay or closing, please sign up to get text messages both from AAA and from Twitter.  To sign up for the AAA alert go to www.wpri.com and click on weather.  From the drop down menu, choose closings.  You will then see Sign Up for School Closing Email and Text AlertsClick on that and follow the directions to receive notices about St. Paul School.  To get Twitter alerts, go to the school web site www.saintpaulschoolcranston.org and click on Follow us on Twitter SaintPaulInfo for News & Important Announcements and sign up.  You should receive these text messages even if you lose power.

Have a safe winter weekend (Presidents’ Day on Monday) and week- we’ll see everyone back on Monday, February 25th. If it does snow, let’s hope it comes during this time!

Mr. Corry
