This week our community continues to remain in yellow on the COVID-19 dial for our region. These fluctuations are the reason the district will not move on its Return to In-Person Learning Matrix until 14 days of steady community transmission rates, as well as personnel availability remains stable.
For this week of February 22, 2021, seven (7) cohorts, six (6) at Durango High School and one (1) at Park Elementary, were put into quarantine.

On February 21, 2021, 9-R was notified by San Juan Basin Public Health (SJBPH) that individuals in cohorts at Shared School at Miller Middle School tested positive for COVID-19, affecting three cohorts. The school and the district are working proactively with the SJBPH to make the appropriate notifications and next steps for those who may have been in close contact with this individual.
Please join the 9-R Board of Education for their upcoming community "Coffee Chat", which allows an open dialogue between the community and the board. Come share your glows, grows and hopes for your child's education and our school district.
