We've now transitioned to a 4-day a week In Person Learning. Please read the attached document for dates In Person, dates Remote Learn at Home and school hours during this time. We will update this document each month.
This week our community continues to remain in yellow on the COVID-19 dial for our region. These fluctuations are the reason the district will not move on its Return to In-Person Learning Matrix until 14 days of steady community transmission rates, as well as personnel availability remains stable.
For this week of February 22, 2021, seven (7) cohorts, six (6) at Durango High School and one (1) at Park Elementary, were put into quarantine.
9-R Families, please click Read More to see a video from the 9-R Medical Director with updates around the district's COVID response and updates around vaccines, testing options and dial updates from our community.
Durango School District 9-R has the opportunity to accelerate highly advanced gifted children under age 5 for kindergarten and/or under age 6 for first grade. This Early Access is for those eligible students if their birthdays fall after October 1st.
With all in-person students returning to school on Monday, some families may need to double check their stops and times. If you have not already registered for bus services, please contact the Transportation Department ASAP to ensure availability.
