Teachers, community leaders gather to urge Bristol Warren schools to change start

BRISTOL – Despite numerous attempts to get the school committee to change the start date of school in the Bristol Warren Regional School District, school will still begin on Sept. 7 the first day of Rosh Hashanah.

On Thursday, July 8, concerned members of the community held a news conference in an effort to raise awareness of an issue that they consider to be discriminatory.

In explaining the need for the gathering in front of the United Brothers Synagogue on High Street, Stephanie Hague, director of community relations at the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island, said “Sometimes when something remains unsolved, even after quiet advocacy, we must bring it to the forefront. We have written letters, petitioned school committee members, and the NEA brought forth a grievance… all met with no changes.”
