Attendance Reminders for Blended and Remote Families

If you are a remote or blended learner, it is critical that you complete your attendance DAILY. For blended learners please note this applies to your at-home days only; your teacher will mark your attendance when you are in-person.

Native American Parent Advisory Committee Meeting

The Durango 9-R Native American Parent Advisory Committee will host our first meeting of the 2020-2021 academic year. We hope you’ll join us for an opportunity to get acquainted and begin our school year positively. We will also vote on a schedule for future NAPAC meetings for the remaining academic year.

Meal Calendar Now Online

The 9-R Meal Calendar is now online! You can go to the website or download the app to see what is on the menu at your child's school, for both breakfast and lunch, as well as access nutritional information.

Kids Eat Free!

The U.S. Secretary of Agriculture announced the extension of the free meals for kids aged 0-18 through as late as December 31, 2020. The flexibility allows Durango 9-R to operate the summer food service program, which makes free meals available to all children through the fall months. This unprecedented move will help ensure – no matter what the situation is on-the-ground – children have access to nutritious food as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Attendance Guides and Instructions for Remote and Blended Learners

Hello 9-R Families, On August 18th, 2020 the school board passed a resolution to help our district define our attendance policies and procedures for the 2020-2021 school year. We know that the experience you had last year with the daily google form was cumbersome and inefficient so we are starting a new way for remote learners and blended learners to let us know they are “present” while away.

Meal Services Information

This year, with students both in schools and out, meal services will look a little different. Durango School District 9-R Student Nutrition program is working hard to create a healthier school nutrition environment for your children. We promote healthy eating by offering organic grass finished beef, organic apple products, whole grain foods, a variety of vegetables each week, salad bar, beans, no fried foods, fresh fruit selections everyday and of course, local sustainable foods whenever possible.

9-R Cleaning Procedures and Expectations

Many families and staff members have been wondering what the cleaning and disinfecting procedures will be in the school this year. While the custodial staff has always had high-quality standards following the guidelines from CDE, those look a little different this year.

Student Daily Online Health Screening

As we prepare to welcome students back to school on Monday, we have an important new step we are asking our families to do each day before sending their child to school; a daily online student health screening.
