Principal's Message

Welcome to Sunnyside Elementary School!

Robin Williams once said, Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s Party!” Spring is upon us, and that means: • State testing is done. 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students have completed the PARCC and CMAS assessments. All students have worked hard throughout the school year and gave their best effort to show what they know. I applaud you all. • As the school year winds down, teachers and staff are working extremely hard to make the grade transitions as easy as possible. Students can do the same by finishing the year academically strong. We are in session until June 1st and will be teaching bell to bell through that day. Soon, we will be posting and sending home summer reading lists and resources to keep the learning going throughout the summer. • Volunteer opportunities are plentiful. I encourage you to go on a field trip, help with Spring Clean-up, “participate” in Field Day, come to a SIPTA meeting, or volunteer in the school. We always appreciate the extra help. To this point, it has been a great school year. Through the continued work of students, effort from teachers and staff, and support from parents and community, we will end the school year as we started, motivated and excited to learn. Mr. Hyatt

New Student Tracking System for 9-R Buses

Durango School District 9-R is proud to announce the implementation of the Student Tracking System on our school buses. All students will be issued Student IDs this year that will work interactively with our bus tracking system, as well as other systems in the school, such as the library. Using the cards, students will scan when they get on and off the buses. This new safety feature allows the Transportation Department, our schools, parents, and guardians to follow bus schedules and routes, and whether or not their student is on the bus. With the Student Tracking System, the school district is able to increase its safety measures and identification processes for all students.
