Bike over the bridge
Interest in biking has understandably been a little chilly, but Mr. Cicatiello is going to pilot a few bike-over-the-bridge groups before break. He will be in the parking lot of India Point Park Tuesday and Wednesday, February 27th and 28th, and Tuesday to Thursday March 5th through the 7th. Bikers need to be ready to ride at 7:15am!
Dinner prep made easy
After break, Sage Dining will offer four-serving take-home meal packages for a fee. Every meal will include protein, starch, vegetable, and dessert. Most days will also include a salad. Meals will be fully prepared and ready to reheat in the oven. Details to come!
It’s not too late to sign up for the public bus
Statewide Bus, the company that services schoolchildren throughout the state, offers free transportation to Gordon for students who live within the following cities:
- East Providence
- Central Falls
Busing is only guaranteed for those who sign up prior to the start of a school year
However, families can register for bus transportation at any time: Statewide will review new registrations and communicate directly with families as to whether or not they can accommodate based on current routes and bus capacities.

What was that press conference?
The Department of Transportation announced they will be adding lanes to the bridge, one each in both directions, sometime in the next eight to ten weeks. All the bridge lanes will be narrowed, and the speed limit will be reduced. Related on-ramp hijinks may have negative implications for people south of Providence who get off 95 at Thurbers and back onto 195 at Trader Joes.
Car seat fun
The Gators team is preparing take-home car kits with simple activities—coloring, LEGOs—to make the commute go a little faster. Details to come!
