The East Greenwich School District's 2011-12 opening has once again been postponed as power outages and other problems created by Hurricane Irene continue to plague the system.
Opening day has now been pushed back to Tuesday, Sept. 6, the third time it has been pushed back a day this week. Kindergarten orientation will also be held that day, with the first day of kindergarten classes now scheduled for Wednesday. Freshman orientation at East Greenwich High School has been postponed indefinitely.
Teacher orientation throughout the district has also been pushed back a day, and will be held Friday at 8:30 a.m. High school and Cole Middle School teachers will report to their respective schools, while all elementary teachers will meet at Frenchtown School.
Also, the annual Summer's End Concert will go on as scheduled Friday evening at Eldredge Field, with gates opening at 5 p.m. and music to commence at 6.
