We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to host our CTE and Civics Showcases this week, and it was indeed a memorable experience. Witnessing our students present and engage in discussions about their impressive work at DR was a true delight. The level of poise and confidence displayed by our students when asked about their programs and projects was truly commendable. We want to thank our staff, students, families, and School Committee for their unyielding support. Our entire DR community is proud of their exceptional efforts and achievements. Congratulations to all! #WeAreDR

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
