Schools & Colleges

Colleges, high schools, middle schools, elementary schools… they all are invaluable contributors to the future of Rhode Island. To help you reopen your school as safely as possible, we have established protocols designed to protect your teachers, staff, and students. Here you’ll find all the information you need about anything that is required of, recommended for, and relevant to the reopening of schools. Please read it carefully, familiarize yourself with it, and refer to it whenever necessary. Additional information may also be found at Back 2 School RI.
