The UCAP School Coronavirus Info & Updates
At The UCAP School, our main priority, always, is the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff. We are doing our best to manage our response to coronavirus (or COVID-19) based on the information we have. We are in frequent contact with local health and education authorities to understand the risks and handle any developments in the situation.

On August 31st Governor Raimondo announced that all schools except for Providence and Central Falls would return to full in-person learning on September 14th.
Because the majority of UCAP students come from Providence and Central Falls, our classes will begin on September 14th using a hybrid model with one grade level in the building at a time, alternating grades every other day. Students will attend in person classes on a rotating schedule of MWF (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and T/Th (Tuesday, Thursday).
For example, one week 7th grade will come to school on MWF and have Distance Learning from home on T/Th while 8th grade has Distance Learning on MWF and will come to school on T/Th. The following week the grades will switch days with 8th grade in school on MWF and 7th grade in school on T/Th. We will continue this rotation for the first four weeks of school and follow the guidance of the Governor and Rhode Island Department of Health for direction afterward. When students are not scheduled to be in the building, they will receive instruction from our teachers using the Distance Learning model.
See below for the May schedule.
