Dear Riverview Families, We made it! What a year! Thank you so much for the support and hard work this year with helping us maintain our Covid protocols keeping students and staff safe. In spite of constant change our students did an admirable job of adjusting models, following our safety protocols, and just being great kids in spite of a global pandemic, a true testament to character. We would also like to publicly thank ALL Riverview employees in practicing resilience and perseverance in the face of some serious adversity. It is a true testament to how hard these folks work and care for our students. We are a lucky community!

April 9, 2021 Newsletter to Riverview Families

Dear Riverview Families, We hope you are enjoying this beautiful spring weather. We are looking forward to getting our classrooms back outside as much as possible. We wanted to thank you for your patience, flexibility and most of all kindness these last couple of months. Since returning to in person learning, Riverview has needed to quarantine 5 Cohorts due to positive cases. Even though being in quarantine is difficult, it is our system working to keep everyone safe. We have had ZERO documented student to student transfers here at school. We want to thank our community of students, staff, and families for continuing to follow the District wide COVID Guidelines.

News & Announcements

Colorado Academic Standards

Durango School District 9-R uses the Colorado Academic Standards as a foundation of our guaranteed and viable curriculum. The Colorado Academic Standards are the outcomes we promise to every student.

Student Achievement Data

We continually monitor our student and system results to ensure that we are on track to realize this mission. At 9-R, we believe every student deserves to have a solid academic foundation that opens the window of opportunity for any career in which they are interested. They also deserve to have experiences that help them understand their talents, interests, and possible future career options.

This is How We Roll - Driving a 9-R School Bus is About the Kids

Steve Lee has been driving buses and trucks for a long time. What initially drew him to drive a school bus for the Durango School District 9-R was the hours and benefits. The shifts are typically two hours in the morning and three in the afternoon, which also happens to be enough to earn full benefits, and give him time to run his business during the day.

September 2021 COVID News and Updates

During the month of September, our schools, students and staff have been steadfast in ensuring we maintain our mitigation measures, decreasing chances of outbreaks of COVID-19 in our schools, and increasing the chances of keeping schools open and safe.
