Circle with the words Policy Update Inside
  • As of March 4, 2022, at 5 pm (the end of the Governor’s current executive order) and going forward, the North Kingstown School Department strongly recommends but does not require that individuals follow the guidelines of the Centers for the Disease Control (CDC) and Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) regarding masking for students, employees, and visitors in school settings throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. 
  • Any federal or state order related to masking on public transportation shall supersede this district policy, for school buses, while in effect.  Please be advised that masking on all busses, including school busses, is still a federal law and is still required in NKSD until further notice.
