11-10-20 Riverview News, District 9R Pivots to Remote Learning

Dear Families, As you have heard from Durango School District 9-R, Riverview will make the immediate pivot to full remote starting Wednesday, November 11, 2020. Your child’s teacher will be contacting you via email tomorrow by 12:00 pm, to touch base with you and your student to outline what instruction will look like throughout the quarantine period. We expect that your student’s instructional experience will be remarkably different than what they experienced last school year.

Instructional Feedback Survey

As a reminder, we are asking families to share your remote learning experiences with us every week. Your feedback helps us to continually refine and improve the instruction your children receive while remote. We want to be swift in our response to your feedback and we will ask you to complete this each Friday so that we can make adjustments early the next school week.

9-R Community Update - 11.20.20

As shared last weekend, the district will focus its communication on Friday to update you on important matters at the district level during this pivot to remote learning for our students. In this video, we hope to share updates with you on: - The rationale for the shift to remote learning; - The current status of our community with regard to the COVID crisis; - Our pathway forward as we look forward to reopening our schools in a safe and careful manner; and, - Reminders about services currently available to our students as we provide remote services to our K-12 students.

Remote Learning Expectations

Thank you for partnering with us during the next few weeks as we engage your child in remote learning while we prepare to hopefully open our schools after the winter holidays.  On Friday, we will provide you with more information as to our community's progress in getting control of the spread of the COVID-19 virus and our metrics we will look for as we prepare to reopen our schools in the future.

Apply to be on the 9-R Bond Oversight Committee

We are so incredibly grateful for the ongoing support the community of Durango has for education. Thank you to all of those who supported the bond initiative, whether you helped on the committee or filled in the 'yes' circle. As we move forward with the expenditures of the bond dollars, we are seeking community and staff members to support the work ahead of us.

Remote Meal Services

Order your FREE meals for pick up from school sites or bus routes. Durango School District 9R Food Services is requesting families fill out a form and pre-order meals for delivery starting 11/16. Order deadlines will be the Friday before the delivery week.

9-R Pivots to Remote Learning for All Families - 11.10.20

Dear Families, We commend all the efforts that our families and staff have made to allow 9-R to open up our school year with three different learning models, including in-person. That was not an option for many districts across the state and the country, and we are grateful for the opportunity to support students and enjoy success in the first quarter of the school year with little to no issue.

Update for the Community - 11.8.20

Good afternoon 9-R Families and Staff. As you probably know, our community is seeing a significant increase in new cases of COVID-19. This is not unlike the rest of our state or nation at this point. Needham Elementary School is closed to a majority of its students due to potential exposure of staff members to a positive case. Students were not at risk of exposure as they were not at school due to the cancelation of school a week ago Friday.

Planning for the Unexpected - Isolation Room and Quarantine

Dear Families, We know this school year has been a bit different than those we are accustomed to, but thanks to all your hard work and support we have been able to continue in-person learning and limit the number of students, staff and families impacted by COVID-19. It is important that we all remain diligent in our steps to practice the three W’s: wear your mask, wash your hand and watch your distance, while in and outside of school.
