Delays and Closings

Our school cancellations will be announced as The Ocean State Montessori School and are separate and independent from any East Providence Public school announcements.

If school needs to close early due to inclement weather that begins after school is in session, we will call parents or others on the Permission Form to notify them of the time of our closing. Parents are expected to collect their children by the designated time.

School cancellations will air on the following stations:

  • WPRI 12
  • WNAC-Fox
  • WHJJ-AM 920
  • WWBB-FM B101
  • WHJY-FM 94.1
  • WSNE-FM 93.3
