Forecast: Clearing School Committee approves elementary redistricting plan NORTH PROVIDENCE – The School Committee will present its plan for the town's new elementary school districts during a community forum this Thursday, March 7, start- ing at 6 p.m. at North Providence High School. The school board approved the plan during a Feb. 30 meeting at the suggestion of a redistricting subcom- mittee, which formed in January to explore the town's options for place- ment of elementary students when two new elementary schools, Stephen Olney and McGuire, open this fall and Marieville Elementary closes down. School Committee member Roderick Da Silva, who led the subcommittee, said the committee was effective and saved the town money. "We went out to bid and it was $60,000 to hire a company that couldn't reach our March deadline," he said. "Here we are at the end of February and we have a plan."

Debbie Christiansen, an owner of this third-generation family business with her brother Jay, said the own- ers are "so sad" about this closure, but it's probably at least five years overdue. "We're tired, it's time," she told The North Providence Breeze.
