Today's Fourth Grade Picnic was a HUGE success thanks to some VIPs. Shouting out our PTSA who provided the food for the celebration. We are also grateful for our parent volunteer crew who prepared and served up a delicious meal. Finally, sending a BIG thank you to the Chartley Country Store who generously helped us purchase burgers, hotdogs and buns at a very reduced cost. They also donated the most yummy chocolate chip and sugar cookies. Thank you to students and staff for a memorable day!

In Dighton, Maple Street remains closed between Wheeler and Sesame Street. Bloom bus has been notified. Students in that vicinity who ride the bus will need to walk to the intersection of Maple and either of the cross streets. All traffic is to be re-routed.
April 13, 2023 Dear DRRSD Community, I know this message is late, but after today’s events, I feel that it is important that I reach out to you. First, my heart goes out to the students and families that live in the Maple Street area of Dighton. I know that you have been displaced from your home all evening. I will be sure that our staff is sensitive to this when your children come to school tomorrow. If you need anything, lunches, school supplies, etc., please let us know. Contacting the school's Main Office is likely to be your quickest solution. Secondly, I am grateful to our District Leadership Team who rose to the occasion today. We were given this information about five minutes before the high school dismissed, and we had to make transportation adjustments to ensure that our middle school and elementary school students were not stranded on a bus if they lived in that area. The staff at each middle and elementary school made sure the students were safe. It is likely that we will have quite a bit of media attention tomorrow. I have made it clear to any media contacts that our first priority is the learning environment for our students and staff. We will do everything in our power to insulate the school community from these distractions. Should you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s school’s Main Office or my office. Fortunately vacation is just a few hours away. Take care, Bill Runey Superintendent We Are DR!
Congratulations to these outstanding students! #WeAreDR http://reportertoday.com/rehoboth/stories/dighton-rehoboth-honors-excellence-in-mcas,41784
