Sacred Heart School follows the cancellation policies of the East Providence Public School Department. Please listen to your local news stations for the announcements that are aired. If Sacred Heart School chooses to delay, close or dismiss early, there will be a specific announcement regarding the change, separate from the East Providence Public School Department notification.
If school is delayed, both the school's start time and before care start times are delayed. For example, if East Providence announces an one hour delay, before care will begin at 8:00 a.m. and the school yard will open at 9:00 a.m. If there is a two hour delay, before care will begin at 9:00 a.m. and the school yard will open at 10:00 a.m.
For cancellations, students are expected to complete assigned lessons through remote learning.
