Students with excessive absences may be considered habitually truant." For more information about attendance and excessive absences, please see page 13 and 14 of the Student Handbook.

NOVEMBER LUNCH MENU

Please remind your children that BREAKFAST is FREE!

They can grab a breakfast on their way to homeroom!

MYSCHOOLBUCKS INFORMATION

Please click here for more information on MySchoolBucks.


Account payments can be made through MySchoolBucks.com using a debit/credit card or checks at all cafeteria registers. Please make checks payable to “Dighton Rehoboth Regional School District” and include your student’s full name in the memo line.


School meals, both breakfast and lunch, are once again free (see below); however, all students must use the point of sale system to obtain a free lunch. Please encourage your child to remember their lunch pin number because it helps to move along the lunch lines. If a student forgets their pin, then the cafeteria workers need to look it up and this stalls the lunch line.


Students will need to pay for snacks not included with the free meal and this is the reason why a parent would want to put money on their child's account.

SIGN, SIGN, EVERYWHERE A SIGN…

Tis the season when your favorite candidate won or lost their run for elected office. Win or lose you can still turn this into a victory for the students of Rehoboth. If you have any old yard signs made of corrugated plastic we would love to take them off your hands. In STEM class we can turn them into sail powered cars, handmade windmills, hydraulic robotic arms, and much more. If you would like to donate these signs that you no longer need please have your child give them to Mr. Kenny at door 2 in the morning (5th and 7th grade entrance), bring them to the STEM room or drop them off at the front office. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
