A note from our Superintendent:

Dear colleagues, 

I am sure by now that many of you have heard of the sudden passing of Dick Fossa, who was the Athletic Director at North Kingstown High School. Dick was a wonderful coach and Athletic Director in Narragansett for many years, and devoted his life to helping the young men and women of our town and state learn all that participation in athletics has to offer. Dick was loved and respected statewide for his commitment to the RI middle and high school sports community. I am certain you join me in sending our deepest condolences to Mr. Fossa’s family.  

Dick was one of the most knowledgeable, ethical, and committed Athletic Directors I have had the privilege to work with, and his loss is truly a blow to the North Kingstown and Narragansett communities.  I know many of us have close ties to Dick and his family, and I will share more information regarding services and support when they are available. I am in touch with the North Kingstown schools and have offered our support to them as well.

The Providence Journal has a nice tribute to Dick that is linked here:

Please connect with me or with your principal should you need anything.
