Gordon has a simple policy for extreme weather.
There are no delayed openings or early closings.
If school is cancelled, that decision will be made by 5:30am and announced shortly thereafter on radio and television.
If school is not cancelled, classes will begin on time and the school will remain open until the last child is picked up. If weather deteriorates, after school programs besides Gators and YAP may be cancelled. This decision would be announced by one pm, and would impact every after school activity except Gators and YAP child care.
When school is closed, all after school programs are cancelled as well.
Bus riders should check for closures in their local school district. If local public schools are closed, or the East Providence schools, the bus will not be running.
The Rhode Island Broadcasters Association has an up-to-the-minute listing of all area closings.
Children go outside throughout the year, and parents should send snow pants, boots, gloves and hats to school today
