Aug. 23: More Bus Routes, Less Summer

Pick-up and drop-off times for private schools top the list of our 5 Things to Know Today for Aug. 23, 2012.


1. More Bus Routes: Keeping with this week's theme of student transportation, today we're posting the Johnston bus routes to private schools, including St. Rocco, St. Philip in Greenville, Trinity Christian Academy, and Mount St. Charles Academy in Woonsocket. In case you missed the previous ones, here they are:

2. Less Summer: With the start of school scheduled for Aug. 29, that doesn't leave a whole lot of time to get the kids outdoors — and today is the perfect day for it: Mostly sunny with highs in the 80s. About the same through the end of the week into early next week, so there's no excuse to let the young'ins stay indoors.

3. Save the Clicks: If you're looking to stay on top of the latest news in Johnston, be sure to sign up for our email newsletter. You'll get alerts sent right to your Inbox, saving you time — and wear and tear on that mouse.

4. Celebrate the Festa: Whether you made it to last weekend's St. Rocco Church Feast and Festival or not, you'll enjoy on the Sunday procession and last day of the Feast.

5. Lin-Sanity: NBA star Jeremy Lin tallies his 23rd birthday today. Also on the famous birthday list are Shelley Long, Jay Mohr, and Rick Springfield.
