9-R Pivots to Remote Learning for All Families - 11.10.20

Dear Families,




We commend all the efforts that our families and staff have made to allow 9-R to open up our school year with three different learning models, including in-person. That was not an option for many districts across the state and the country, and we are grateful for the opportunity to support students and enjoy success in the first quarter of the school year with little to no issue.

Update for the Community - 11.8.20

Good afternoon 9-R Families and Staff. As you probably know, our community is seeing a significant increase in new cases of COVID-19. This is not unlike the rest of our state or nation at this point. Needham Elementary School is closed to a majority of its students due to potential exposure of staff members to a positive case. Students were not at risk of exposure as they were not at school due to the cancelation of school a week ago Friday.

Durango School District 9-R Update

Dear 9-R Families,

I hope all are enjoying a great summer so far. While it's far from over, I wanted to update parents and staff about our district’s plans for both this summer and for reopening of school in August. As we’ve shared in all previous communication, this is an ever-changing situation and we are in continual conversations with state and local authorities around requirements and safety measures based upon conditions involving the virus.

Update from Superintendent Dan Snowberger

Good Afternoon 9-R Community,

The following is an update on our planning for the 2020-21 School Year. Based on all of the information we have at this time, we do intend to operate on a traditional, in-person schedule with the first day of school being Tuesday, August 25.
