Cell Phones, Mobile Devices, and Smart Watches
Since returning back to school, after vacation, our staff has noticed an increase of smart watches and phones that students are bringing to school. We realize and acknowledge that students carry these devices for safety and security purposes. Therefore, these devices should be switched off, stored in backpacks, and cannot be taken out of their school bag at any time during the school day.
Ultimately, the student is responsible for safety, security, and consequently any damage to their personal devices that they bring to school. The Dighton Rehoboth Regional School District accepts no responsibility for these items during the school day and for devices left on school premises overnight.
If you need to contact your child for any reason during the school day, please call the school office and we will make sure that your child receives your message. The PRES Office phone number is 508-252-5100.
If a child needs to contact a parent/guardian during the school day, we always make arrangements for students to call from our office.

KINDNESS is January's Trait of the Month
We are encouraging all of our students to complete an act of kindness everyday. Every morning this month, students are challenged to complete an act of kindness. It's great to see all the kindness here at PRES!
