Students Boarding BusGWCRS is designated by the State of Rhode Island and the Diocese of Providence as a regional school. Bus transportation is provided to families by the city (town) in which they reside.

Students in Grades K-8 residing in Woonsocket must live an eligible distance from the school to receive transportation services.  GWCRS Administrative Office provides a list of Woonsocket residents to the city for bus eligibility.

Students in Grades K-8 residing in Burrillville, Cumberland, or North Smithfield are eligible for bus services through the Rhode Island Statewide Transportation System.

Also available to support schools, districts and parents is the link below to the RIDE Statewide Transportation home page. This provides access to the inclement weather matrix which is a helpful tool. There are two tabs for inclement weather matrix; one for AM and one for PM. Each list is sorted by school then by route which is followed by the list of districts that impact each individual route. We continue to update these matrices throughout the winter months; so it always reflects the current route information.                          

Please note: The Statewide office also sends out text and call alert notifications to all parents when there are Statewide closings and delays.  If you have any questions regarding this policy, you may contact the Statewide Transportation Office at 304-9136.
