Parent Meeting: In preparation for the 21-22 school year Miller Middle School is hosting two parent meetings. The meetings are geared toward providing as much information as we can on what we are thinking next year will look like.
Recently, Durango 9-R was approached by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to implement a COVID testing pilot at our school campus that will allow us to avoid sending cohorts into quarantine. In order to avoid cohort quarantines, we need 70% of our student body to sign up for testing.
In the past week, a cohort at Miller Middle School, as well as specific students in a cohort from Durango High School, went into quarantine due to exposure to a positive COVID-19 case. We continue to be impressed with our students and our families, who have worked so hard to support all our mitigation efforts to keep school open, while also maintaining flexibility and adaptability throughout the school year to also find academic success and thank you!
The 9-R Public Budget Hearing for the 2021/22 academic year budget will be on May 13, 2021 starting at 5:30 pm via Zoom. Come to learn more about how funds are allocated to schools to determine staffing, resources and services based on school enrollment, as well as other priorities in spending. Translation services available during the hearing.
Incoming Superintendent, Dr. Karen Cheser, is hosting a community meet and greet on Wednesday, May 12 at 5:30 pm via Zoom. This is a great opportunity to hear from Dr. Cheser on her vision and initial plans when she begins in July, as well as ask her any questions you may have.
Between preparing healthy meals for our students, adhering to strict nutrition standards, navigating student food allergies, and offering service with a smile, school nutrition professionals are true heroes.
