Emergency closings


Gordon has a simple policy for emergency closings:
There are no delayed openings or early closings.

If school is cancelled, that decision will be made by 6am 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 may be cancelled. If possible, Gators and YAP would continue to be offered. This decision would be announced by one pm, and would impact every after school activity. 

When school is closed, all after school programs are cancelled as well.

Dr. Thomas López and Mr. Almeida spoke to the sixth grade newspaper about snowstorms in January 2022.

Riding the public bus
Bus riders should check for closures and delays in their local school district. 

If a student’s local public schools are closed, or the East Providence schools, the bus will not be running.

School delays are tricky because students from multiple districts ride the same bus. A student’s bus will be delayed by the longest announced delay of all the school districts on that student’s bus route. Route information, and more, can be found on the Rhode Island Department of Education's student transportation page (scroll down to "Inclement weather...").
