Narragansett Preschool Registration Is Live!

Please begin the NEW application process by visiting the website below.


This is the first step it does not guarantee admission. 
Once your application has been processed and approved, a tuition contract
will be sent to the address you provided. A $250.00 deposit will be due at this time and should be returned with your tuition contract. The deposit will be applied to your first month’s tuition and will hold the slot for your child.

NAEP TESTING FOR GRADE 4
February 14th is the date for grade 4 NAEP testing. A detailed letter went home a few weeks ago in backpacks and was also sent electronically through the newsletter. This is the 3rd notification. NAEP is a national assessment given throughout the county.


Attendance Works is delighted to alert you to the release of the groundbreaking  American Academy of Pediatrics  (AAP) statement on school attendance. Published online today, and in the February 2019 issue of Pediatrics, "  The Link Between School Attendance and Good Health " recommends that health care providers promote good school attendance in their offices as well as in the community, and the state and federal policy levels.
  
Chronic absenteeism -- defined as missing 10 percent of the school year for any reason -- results in students who are likely to lag behind academically and more likely to drop out. This puts them at risk for unhealthy behaviors by the time they reach their teens, and poor health as adults, the AAP says. 

The statement offers proven measures to improve student health and reduce chronic absenteeism for all students, such as increased hand washing and access to school nurses and counselors, and suggests how health care providers can avoid contributing to student absences. It includes practical recommendations for providers seeing children with moderate chronic absenteeism (missing 2 or 3 days of school per month) and for patients with severe chronic absenteeism (missing 4 or more days of school per month).
