Please note, we are making a change to when we will allow students taking private transportation to enter the building in the morning. Students taking private transportation shall now remain in their cars until 7:50 a.m. instead of 8:00 a.m. Starting tomorrow (September 8, 2022) students taking private transportation may enter the building at 7:50 a.m. and proceed to the Cafeteria. Students will be released from the Cafeteria to their homerooms at 8:10 a.m. We are making this change to hopefully better help with the congestion during the morning drop off.


Please click this link for the picture day form which we will be sending home with students as soon as we can. Picture Day is September 19, 2022. Parents can order online with the code on the form.

Account payments can be made through using a debit/credit card or electronic check. We will also be accepting cash and check payments (CHECK ONLY at Beckwith Middle) 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.


Universal Free School Meals has been extended in Massachusetts for the 2022-2023 school year! There will be no cost to families for students to receive breakfast and lunch at Beckwith. There is a charge for snacks. Although meals will be available to all students at no cost, we continue to ask all families to complete eligibility paperwork which can be found below. School funding and competitive grants at the state and national level are dependent on accurately capturing our student population, and the completion of this confidential paperwork is important for our school and our district. Please complete form below and return it to BMS. If you need additional assistance, contact the main office.


A current physical and proof of immunization T-Dap booster, 2nd varicella, and meningitis vaccines are required for entrance to grade 7. Please email proof to
