Back to School for Most on August 30, 2017


August 30, 2017, all public schools open in East Providence. This continues the "new" trend of beginning school before Labor Day as most Rhode Island schools have now adopted. The first day of school at EPHS is August 30, 2017 for ninth graders only. The entire student body of EPHS will return to school on August 31, 2017. 

Lunch applications (free/reduced) for all students in all schools will be sent home the first week of school and must be completed and returned every year to determine eligibility.
