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!

This week is National Assistant Principals Appreciation Week. We are honored to have such dedicated APs who play a crucial role in the success of our schools. They provide support and guidance to both teachers and students, assist with administrative duties, and help to create a safe and positive learning environment. National Assistant Principals Appreciation Week is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate their hard work and commitment to education. By acknowledging their contributions, we can show our appreciation for the critical role they play in shaping our schools and the future of our students. To celebrate their efforts, we will be highlighting the incredible work of our amazing team members across all levels of education, from elementary to high school. Starting tomorrow, we will kick off the celebrations by honoring the exceptional work of our elementary team. Throughout the week, we will share a post for every level, and we invite you to join us in celebrating our team and the outstanding work that they do. #WeAreDR

Rec Night
Last night was a WONDERFUL night for PRES! The preschool students were awarded the "DRiven to Serve" Community Service Award from Superintendent Runey for the community service projects they completed during the month of December. They will display the We Are DR “Big Gold” belt in their room. They made snack packs for the RPD and RFD, and made holiday cards for soldiers. Thank you to Ms. Scott, Ms. Lopez, and Ms. Chase for facilitating these projects, and thanks to preschool families for donating snacks, as well. #WeAreDRivenToServe #WeAreDR
