Join 9-R Board of Education members tomorrow, April 7, 2021, from 8-9, to have an informal conversation about how everything is going for you and your student. The meeting will be on Zoom, and a live interpreter will be available.
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.
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.
Many families are wondering what our next steps will be for increasing in-person learning for students as we continue to see a reduction in local transmission rates and move through the state dial on COVID risk. Next Monday is a scheduled holiday in recognition of President’s Day, and next week we will continue to have Wednesday as a remote learning day. So in-person students will attend Tuesday, Thursday and Friday the week of the 15th.
Currently, district leaders and administration, as well as members of the Return to Learn task force, with input from local health authorities, continue to meet to make the necessary adjustments to the original document from July, as well as provide a matrix to the community that clearly outlines the steps for the district to return to in-person learning based on local data around the COVID-19 virus.
9-R Families, we are looking forward to welcoming all students in all grades back to some form of in-person learning starting Monday, February 1. Your partnership has been appreciated as we worked to phase students back into in-person learning. While we have had a few interruptions thanks to snow and winter finally arriving, overall things are going great and we are all so grateful to have staff and students back in the buildings.
The following is an emergency message from Durango School District 9-R for all families. Due to inclement weather, all in-person learning and activities will be cancelled today, Monday, January 25, 2021. Regional road conditions are hazardous per La Plata County assessments, making travel conditions challenging throughout the day. Remote learning will resume for in-person learners, while childcare and kids’ camp are all cancelled.
