  • Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update From The Director

    This is a message from the Director of Davies High School. For at least the month of April, all schooling in Rhode Island will be delivered through distance learning, and it is likely that we may have to continue beyond that. The Governor and the RIDOH continue to make decisions and changes incrementally in an effort to maintain hope that we will return to school to finish out the year. We could all use a long weekend. As such, the Governor has directed all schools to take April 9th and April 10th off. To be clear, there will not be any remote classes or office hours on April 9th or April 10th – enjoy the long weekend. Students and families should check their email for more information. It is also available at daviestech.org. Thank you.
