DESE Initial Fall Reopening Letter to Families


Dear Dighton-Rehoboth Families, Staff and Community,

As many of you know, we have been waiting for guidance from our governor and our commissioner of education in regard to the opening of our schools in the fall. At our most recent school committee meeting this past Tuesday, we reiterated the formation of a Superintendent Advisory Committee that has been charged to review and then make recommendations for the fall opening.

The committee, co-chaired by Mrs. Kristin Donahue, Special Education Director, and Mrs. Alyson Belora, our district nurse, have already met several times to discuss the opening of the schools in the fall.

Therefore, with the guidance from the governor and commissioner released (please see attached), the Superintendent Advisory Committee may now proceed with reviewing the guidance and report out recommendations for implementation.
As the advisory committee's work progresses through the summer, we will keep you informed so that you may make necessary family decisions for the fall based on the guidance we have received. Please know that the safety of our children and staff will play significantly in our next steps for a smooth opening to our school year 20-21.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your respective school's administrative team and/or me.

Dr. Azar
