Being part of the Centredale community also means being part of the North Providence and education community at large. We offer a plethora of resources at our school campus, including “MySchoolBucks,” a site that allows families to view meals offered at the school and meal account information, as well as parent and teacher portals to keep families up-to-date with the latest classroom news.
We hope you’ll tap into these helpful tools, as well as the North Providence School Department as a whole and our partners at the Town of North Providence and Rhode Island Department of Education, linked at the top of each page.

Health & Safety
Dear Parents / Guardians,
- All incoming K students must be up to date with immunizations and physicals as mandated by the RI Dept of Health. If your child is missing any information, you will receive a note from me.
- For all students in grades 1 – 5 : When he/she has an annual physical exam, kindly ask the physician for a copy of the physical, so the health record can be updated.
- Annual dental visits are also required; kindly provide a copy of the annual dental visit.
- If you child needs medication on a regular basis, even tylenol, a medication order form must be provided
- Peanut / Tree Nuts: Any child who has a life threatening allergy must provide an epipen on the first day of school along with a physician order. We have a peanut free table in the cafeteria for the child to sit at.
- Asthma and inhaler use: If your child has asthma and will need an inhaler at school, a physician order must be provided along with an inhaler to remain at the school. There will be an educational program entitled “Draw a Breath” provided by RI Hospital which will be offered in the fall at Birchwood Middle School.
