Have a Great Vacation!

See you on Monday, February 25, 2019




 Palmer River Elementary School will be taking appointments for preschool screening for the 2019-2020 school year.  If you are a resident of Rehoboth and have a three or four year old, you may call beginning 2/25/19 to schedule a screening time for the week of March 4-8th.

 This screening process is for new applicants who live in the town of Rehoboth and who will be at least 3 years of age by August 31, 2019. These screenings serve two purposes. First, students will be eligible to enter the lottery for available openings in the Integrated Preschool Program. This program integrates typically developing children and children in need of special education services through a play centered, interactive, curriculum- rich preschool experience. Secondly, the screenings serve to identify students who may need a variety of special education services.

 To schedule an appointment for a screening, please call: 508-252-5100 extension 3104 starting on 2/25/2019. Calls will be accepted from 7:30am-11:30am every weekday. You may also leave a message with your name and phone number where you can be reached during that time period.

 Screening appointments take place at the Palmer River Elementary School, located at 326 Winthrop Street, Rehoboth, MA during the week of March 4th to March 8th. A developmental and social skills screening will take approximately 45 minutes. Please provide the following items at the appointment:

  •       Proof of residency (recent utility or tax statement, lease or mortgage)
  •    Child’s original birth certificate or certified copy
  •       Driver’s License (a copy will be made at the appointment) 

 We look forward to meeting you and your child as part of this process. If you have any questions please reach out to Mrs. Miguel or Mrs. DuBois at Palmer River Elementary School, 508-252-5100.


  Our school motto is:
