District Weekly Update - 4.1.2020

Hello 9-R families and members of our Durango community. Thank you for your work with your children to keep them engaged in learning during these unusual times. While we have started distance learning, we recognize that our families are in different places. First and foremost, please know that our intent is not to overwhelm our families, but to provide enough academic engagement to meet the varying needs of students across our community. We know this is a stressful time for all of us. If you are finding the work to be overwhelming, communicate with your child’s teacher or your school leaders. Our goal is to keep our children engaged in learning, but we also want to ensure that we partner with families during these trying times.
