The following is based on reports from the Newport Police Department. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.

Rogers High School currently operates on a thee-day rotating block schedule.
Rogers High School Principal James Nelson made a case for considering alternative modified block schedules during Tuesday night's school committee meeting, stating that classes should meet more frequently. The current modified block rotates on a three-day schedule with 69 minutes of instructional time per class per day. Students have seven classes and attend five each day. “The problem with the current schedule is that you have the kids two out of three days,” Nelson said. “It’s important to see the kids as often as you can.” A local credit requirement offers little leeway for administrators to change class schedules, he added. “We’re a little bit handcuffed, we have to go seven periods [because of the requirement],” he said. The school …

La Salle remains in the top spot, and they remain undefeated.
Back after a week’s absence – thanks Sandy! – not much has changed in the top six. Although the order has switched around a bit, La Salle, Hendricken, Cranston East and Portsmouth remain the top four in the state. La Salle remains undefeated, while the other three have traded wins and losses against one another. Behind the top four in Division I lurk the best two teams – so far – in Division II, Johnston and Cumberland. After the top six is where the ballot gets jumbled, with a mixture of mediocre Division I programs, good Division II programs and great Division III programs. The full poll: Dropped from the poll: No. 20 Warwick Vets. Also receiving votes: Moses Brown (15), Hope (13), North Smithfield (7), South Kingstown (7), Narragansett…

La Salle takes all 14 first place votes in the latest Rhode Island Sports Media Football Poll, after Hendricken is beaten by Portsmouth.
All 14 first place votes went to No. 1 La Salle this week, after No. 3 Hendricken took its first loss of the season, 39-13, to No. 2 Portsmouth. The win puts the Patriots in good position for a home game in the Division I playoffs, as long as they can win Friday against No. 4 Cranston East. The Thunderbolts can muddy the picture further with a win of their own though. The big movers in this week’s poll were No. 13 West Warwick, No. 18 Westerly and No. 19 East Providence, although for the wrong reasons. All three teams fell at least five spots after losses. The full poll: Dropped from the poll: No. 19 Moses Brown, No. 20 Shea. Also receiving votes: Mt. Hope (29), South Kingstown (24), Hope (16), Shea (12), Moses Brown (8), Narragansett (2) …

The top seven remain unchanged, and Rogers remains unranked after another loss, in the latest Rhode Island Sports Media Football Poll.
Inaction is the new action, as the top seven remain unchanged in the Rhode Island Sports Media Football Poll, after a weekend of mostly winning. No. 3 Cranston East lost, but it was to Hendricken, and while they lost a first place vote and about 25 points in the polls, it wasn’t enough to drop below No. 4 Portsmouth. No. 7 Barrington lost to Tolman, which caused the Tigers to jump two spots in the polls, up into a tie at No. 10 with East Greenwich. However, the loss of 30 poll points for the Eagles weren’t enough for No. 8 West Warwick to overtake them. All 20 teams from last week’s poll stayed in this week. The biggest mover was Westerly, which dropped four spots to No. 12 after a loss to Division I East Providence. East Providence moved …
