Good morning Big Picture Badgers!  
We are looking forward to seeing all our students back for the 2021/22 academic year, which starts on August 24, 2021. Please check the website at bigpicture.durangoschools.org for other important details and updates regarding the start of school.

As you may be aware, the Durango School District 9-R Board of Education approved the purchase agreement to sell the Administrative Building and Big Picture building last night at the board meeting.  Our timeline to close is by the end of November, but please be assured there is an agreement with the Fire District to keep the Big Picture school operating in its current location through the 21/22 school year.  We are currently working to find the best new home for Big Picture and conversations have already been underway. We wanted to provide these updates to our Big Picture families and assure the community that we will continue to share information on next steps for Big Picture as details are dialed in. 




Thank you for your patience during this process and we are excited for the new school year.
