Updated Travel order Reminder(PDF)


January 4, 2021

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health updated the mandated influenza vaccination for all K-12 students extending the deadline from December 31, 2020 to February 28, 2021. The new guidance states:

"Students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 will be required to receive influenza vaccine for the current influenza season for school attendance unless they have a medical or religious exemption.  Students must receive influenza vaccine for the current season by February 28, 2021."

If you have not already done so, please send documentation of your student's flu vaccination to your school nurse by February 28, 2021.

Sincerely, 

Dr. Anthony Azar

Dear DRRSD Families,

 

Students who are eligible for free or reduced-priced meals in our school will get Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) funds through the 2020-2021 school year. P-EBT funds can be used to help you buy healthy food for your student and family. It’s important to stay healthy, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

How much will I get?

●        Eligible students in a fully remote learning situation will get $117.20 per month.

●        Eligible students in a hybrid learning situation will get $58.60 per month.

●        Students attending school either half-day or fully in person are not eligible for P-EBT.

 

How will I get P-EBT for October and November?

●        Funds for October and November will be issued in ONE issuance. 

●        I got  P-EBT in the past: You will get funds on your EBT or P-EBT card in late December.

●        I am new to P-EBT:  If you get SNAP and/or TAFDC, look for funds to be added to the DTA EBT card you already have.  If you do not get SNAP and/or TAFDC, look for a DTA letter and card in the mail in mid January.

 

How will I get P-EBT funds in 2021?

●        I got P-EBT in the past on a P-EBT card: Starting in January, check your P-EBT card for funds on the 25th of each month for the rest of the school year.

●        I got P-EBT in the past on my DTA EBT card: Starting in January, check your EBT card for funds on the 25th of each month for the rest of the school year.

●        If you are new to P-EBT:

○     If you get SNAP and/or TAFDC, check your DTA EBT card for funds.

○     If you do NOT get SNAP and/or TAFDC,  you will get a letter in the mail from the DTA. You will also get a P-EBT card in the mail in a different envelope. KEEP THE LETTER UNTIL YOU HAVE GOTTEN  AND PINNED THE CARD. The letter has your students’ case number that you need to PIN the card.

Each month, funds will be added to your card on the 25th of each month for the month before.  Example: your February P-EBT funds will be based on your students’ learning situation in January.

No longer have your P-EBT card?

Request a replacement card at DTAconnect.com/pebt.  If you need help getting a new card, contact Gail Fisher at DRRSD Central Office at 508-252-5000 X5140. If you need a new EBT card, call DTA at 1-877-382-2363.

 

IMPORTANT:  Using P-EBT does not impact you or your student’s immigration status. The public charge rule does not apply to this program.

 

Need more food help?

●         If you are eligible for P-EBT you are likely eligible for SNAP, ongoing monthly food funds.  Check your eligibility and apply at DTAConnect.com.

●        You can also get FREE grab and go school provided by the district. 

 

Get help: visit MAp-EBT.org or call 508-252-5000 X5140

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Anthony Azar

Dear Dighton-Rehoboth Staff and Families,

We have had a successful reopening of the school district and you all should be proud of this accomplishment.

Now is a time to enjoy some time with our families over the Thanksgiving Day holiday.

I want to remind everyone that it is essential that we keep in mind our personal safety and the well being of our communities.

Please be advised that if students or staff travel outside Massachusetts to a high risk state, our school nurses will need to have received the appropriate documentation regarding COVID-19 test results, before re-enter to any school buildings.

For further information, see the Massachusetts travel order-  or the DR "holiday reminder" located on our district web site under COVID-19.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and thanks for your continued support. 

Sincerely, 

Dr. Azar
