Dear community members, It has come to the attention of the district that there is a shortage of long-term and short-term foster care placements in our community. Unfortunately, there is an increasing need for placements across the state, and the Department of Children and Families is looking to add more families to its roster. Please see the attached infographic that includes facts about foster care in Massachusetts. You can provide a child with a safe place during one of potentially the most difficult times in their lives. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a foster parent, please reach out to the Plymouth DCF office, their phone number is 508-732-6200. You can also view how to become a foster parent at this website: https://www.mass.gov/how-to/steps-to-become-a-dcf-foster-parent Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving, Jill A. Proulx, Ph.D. Superintendent Silver Lake Regional School District

Hi KES Families, Here is our May Newsletter . I've also attached it as a PDF. Today we had Becky Curran Kekula visit with all of the students Kindergarten-2nd Grade to share her important story, experiences, and promote diversity, inclusion, and acceptance for all. We are lucky to have had this wonderful learning opportunity. Becky educated us and motivated us through her life journey to raise awareness and provide more and equal opportunities for people with disabilities. Becky also read the book “Louie's Together Playground", a children's book about a llama with dwarfism who builds a disability inclusive playground in his town. Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you, Kerri Whipple
