WARWICK, RI — Friday’s got rain in the morning, then freezing rain in the afternoon, then maybe snow at night, bringing a flurry of cancelled events and services, including a distance learning day for Warwick Public Schools.
“All Warwick Schools will be closed Friday, February 4, 2022 due to the predicted ice storm and severe driving conditions. This will be a distance learning day for students, faculty & staff. Building Principals will be messaging instructions for attendance, assignments & Google meets. Fifty-two week employees will work remotely and the administration building will also be closed.
Please know this is not a light decision. Safety is our utmost priority. The current path of the storm will affect both arrival and dismissal of students. Many options have been thought through. We feel a distance learning day will allow for a full day of instruction for our students,” Warwick Public Schools announced in an email to parents Thursday.
