Training school shutdown comes as a shock to RI students

As winter break comes to an end, students are heading back to school, but roughly 300 in Rhode Island no longer have a school to go back to, after the Sawyer School abruptly closed their doors. 

A few students got a letter in the mail just days before they were supposed to go back to class at the career training facility in Providence on January 2nd. The letter, dated December 28th, read:

"We regret to inform you that classes scheduled to resume in January have been permanently suspended. The school will be working with the appropriate agencies to make your records available to you, or to another institution if you choose to continue your education. You will receive additional information on what you will need to do to obtain your transcripts."

The letter, which was only three sentences long, did not provide a reason for why the doors closed.
