Thank you for your patience as we worked through the many logistics around considerations of running fall sports. Middle School sports are under different guidelines than high school, and the San Juan Basin League helps to guide decisions around safety and scheduling.
After much discussion, the San Juan Basin League Principals and Athletic Directors voted to hold off on the 2020-21 football season, and follow the current guidelines issued by the state to wait until Season C, or February, to resume regular fall sports.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
