Home Internet Connectivity Survey


Westerly Public Schools, in an effort to better understand the needs of our student population, is requesting that students and parents take the corresponding surveys on internet connectivity in the home. This information will help guide our Strategic and Technology plans for the future to help us develop thoughtful, intentional strategies and policies that decrease inequities in digital learning.  
 
The Surveys can be found here: Surveys
For an explanation on what the digital divide is, you can visit ASCD for more information here.

Westerly Hospital Presents "Raising Resilient Children in the Age of Anxiety"

Westerly Hospital Presents “Raising Resilient Children in the Age of Anxiety”

 
In honor of World Mental Health Day, Westerly Hospital will be hosting a free discussion on “Raising Resilient Children in the Age of Anxiety” on Tuesday, October 11 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. in the hospital’s Henry J. Nardone Conference Center.  The program will be presented in partnership with the Westerly Public School district and the Washington County Coalition for Children.
The program will be presented by Ellen Flannery Schroeder, PhD, ABPP, clinician at the New England Center for Anxiety in Westerly and Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Rhode Island and member of the Washington County Coalition for Children.
Dr. Schroeder will discuss how parents can identify anxiety and related difficulties in children, avoid common parenting practices which serve to maintain or worsen anxiety, use research-supported parenting strategies which lessen both the immediate and long-term impacts of anxiety and related distress, and best support children’s independent coping to manage difficult situations.
The program is free and open to all.

If you are transferring OUT of Dunn's Corners school, we will prepare your child's records to be sent to his or her new school (once registered).
