Student Athletes Earn Academic All-State Honors

Sixty-two RISD student athletes have been recognized as academic all-state performers in 2015-16 for their success in the classroom.

"The commitment required to participate in athletics can sometimes be difficult for young people to balance with academic goals," said Assistant Director of RISD Athletics Leslie Slovak. "Congratulations to these outstanding students for earning this well-deserved recognition that highlights their hard work in the classroom."

Focus Accounts Needed for Online Enrollment

On March 1, parents of current non-magnet elementary students in kindergarten through fifth grades will be able to enroll their children for the 2016-17 school year online. To enroll online, an active Focus Parent account will be required.

Focus Parent accounts also allow parents to view their child's grade and attendance information online.

Online enrollment for secondary students will occur in late July, also through Focus.

Parents are encouraged to create a Focus Parent account
if they have not already done so.
