Message From Ginamarie Masiello, Interim Superintendent & Assistant Superintendent 

I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the newly appointed Assistant Superintendent for South Kingstown School District. I am honored to serve the students and families in this capacity. 

My service in SK began in December 2019 as the Director of Curriculum. On June 28th of this year, I was appointed Interim Superintendent and will continue to serve as interim until a permanent superintendent is in place.  Over the past few weeks, school building administrators, central office staff, and the technology and facilities teams have been working tirelessly on all opening of schools tasks to be sure we are ready for your children on the first day of the 2021/2022 school year.  

Many families have expressed concerns regarding the opening of schools with respect to masks, and I would like to provide you with the most updated information that school districts have received. 

The RI Department of Health and Rhode Island Department of Education held a live webinar for school districts yesterday where they shared the following: 

August 1st: RIDE will release the school district planning template

August 1 - 13: School districts will review masking and testing policies and procedures and draft their opening of schools plan

August 14: School districts will submit their plan to RIDE for approval

August 27th: RIDE will approve plans by this date, and once approved, districts are to post the plan on their website.

We have quite a bit of work to do considering how we had to operate last year and how we will operate this year, but we have an amazing team working collaboratively this summer.

Thank you ahead of time for your patience, as SKSD is dedicating all of our time and efforts to opening schools while simultaneously planning for learning and instruction for the entire school year that lies ahead.
