January 27, 2021 Enrichment Day

The week of January 25 is when k-5 students will begin their regular 4-day in-person learning week. Wednesdays remain remote learning, and the upcoming January 27th is a non-school day, including remote learning due to staff professional development activities.

To assist families with this upcoming enrichment day, a couple of community partners are offering free or financial assistance to allow students to have supervised activities on the 27th.

Early Access Information

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.

Snow Day, January 19, 2021

Happy Snowy Tuesday Morning!

Due to the weather today, teachers will be sharing home learning plans for K-5 students today to complete remotely.

In-Person Learning Cancelled Due to Inclement Weather - 1/19/21

The following is an emergency message from Durango School District 9-R. Due to inclement weather, all in-person learning and activities will be cancelled today, Tuesday, January 19, 2021. Continued snow accumulations are expected throughout the day making travel conditions challenging. Remote learning will resume for in-person learners, while preschool, childcare and kids’ camp are all cancelled. Remote meal services are also cancelled today.

Important Information About Potential Snow Days

Should we have a weather situation that prevents the safe opening of schools for in person learning, we will pivot to remote instruction for the day rather than call a snow day. This will be our practice with inclement weather for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year.

Update on Kids' Camp

Kids' Camp will be operating their regular hours on all IN PERSON learning days. If you were previously registered for days, your registration is still valid.

It will take some time to update and reinstate the registration software, feel free to check the Kids' Camp webpage throughout the weekend. The registration links will be uploaded as soon as they are operational.

Update on Remote Meal Services - 1.8.21

From January 11 through January 29, Monday through Friday, remote meal service bus route locations will continue to run as previously scheduled and site pick up times will be reduced to a 30-minute window. Families do not need to sign-up for meal services during this time, and any child age 0-18 are eligible for the meals, which include a fresh breakfast and lunch option. Please see the bus route schedule on the Food and Nutrition page of the website.

In-Person Learning Update - 1.7.21

Our Return to In-Person Learning Task Force met again this morning to review the new state guidance that was released after our Return Matrix was presented to the community. We recognize the challenges our families are experiencing due to the school closures and are committed to getting our children back to school as soon as possible. That being said, we also want to make sure that we do so in a manner that will not require another closure this Spring, barring of course, any major changes in the status of the pandemic and local transmission rates and risks.

9-R Community Update - January 4, 2021

Happy New Year 9-R families!

As you may know, our community transitioned to Level Orange on Friday of last week with regard to the COVID-19 impact in our community. With that change, we will look forward to elementary children returning to in-person learning next week. As per a Durango 9-R Matrix developed in conjunction with teachers and staff prior to the holidays, elementary-aged children who had been previously served five days a week may now return for in-person learning two days a week, Mondays and Tuesdays, while at Level Orange. Watch for more communications and details on this return from your child's school.
