Their K-12 education is com- ing to a close in the midst of a global pandemic and economic crisis, and the experience of leaving school in the middle of the year, not knowing when or if they'd be returning, was "shocking, to say the least," Shannon said.

You have one more day to walk around the school and say your goodbyes to people you may Shannon, Barrow top Class of 2020 By NICOLE DOTZENROD Valley Breeze Staff Writer nicole@valleybreeze.com NORTH PROVIDENCE – Donna DeCurtis has dedicated her life to the students of North Providence, giving back tenfold to the community that molded her.
