Our Food Services Department completed their second day of meals distribution for the children of Dedham on March 17th. They increased their distribution of meals to over 100 Dedham residents under the age of 18. That’s over 200 meals in one day! Thank you to our dedicated Food Service Employees who continue to rise before the sun comes up every day to provide this service to the children of the Dedham Community!
Food distribution will continue throughout the next three weeks, and ALL Dedham children are eligible. “Grab-and-go” meals will be available in a convenient drive-through pick-up format from 9-11:00 AM each day at the Avery Elementary School and the Dedham Housing Authority Community Center (92 Veteran’s Road). Starting on Thursday, March 19th a new pick-up site will be added at Riverdale Elementary.
Information emailed on March 18 from all Dedham Principals - on the District’s plan to support academic enrichment and review while school is closed. These are unprecedented times and we are working closely with our colleagues across the district to prepare resources to help maintain learning while we are not in session. The following paragraphs provide a detailed overview of the materials we are preparing and how you can access them.
The mission of the Dedham Public Schools, in partnership with the community, is to promote excellence in learning, self-discipline, and motivation.
The Dedham School System does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, national origin or handicap in its educational activities or employment practices.
Each graduate of the Dedham Public Schools (DPS) will confidently pursue personal excellence through continued independent inquiry and learning and exhibit socially responsible decision-making within a dynamic and diverse global community.
