Letter from the Superintendent

Dear Parents and members of the Community,

I want to thank our community for the participation in last week’s Suicide Prevention Summit sponsored by many community organizations and facilitated by San Juan Basin Health Department.  It was a good first step for us to begin problem solving and planning for critical next steps as a community.

Showcase Your Business and Sponsor with 9-R

Durango 9-R's sponsorship program helps local businesses and organizations reach the 9-R community and puts money back in our classrooms. Not only does your sponsorship free up dollars that can go back to support technology in schools, good nutrition programs in the kitchens and innovative programming for students, but it is also an opportunity to showcase your business, and its services, as being a key supporter of public education in Durango.

School districts in Southwest Colorado work together to purchase beef from Colorado ranchers to bring healthier, sustainably produced and regionally sourced food to our lunch programs

New Student Tracking System for 9-R Buses

Durango School District 9-R is proud to announce the implementation of the Student Tracking System on our school buses. All students will be issued Student IDs this year that will work interactively with our bus tracking system, as well as other systems in the school, such as the library. Using the cards, students will scan when they get on and off the buses. This new safety feature allows the Transportation Department, our schools, parents, and guardians to follow bus schedules and routes, and whether or not their student is on the bus. With the Student Tracking System, the school district is able to increase its safety measures and identification processes for all students.

Durango High School Announces Stadium Sponsorships

Durango High School is delighted to announce the support of the Bank of Colorado, Morehart Murphy Regional Auto Center, and Coca-Cola of Durango-Farmington as the first local, corporate sponsors for the DHS Stadium, athletic and activities programs. Their sponsorship dollars will go towards the repayment of the costs of the new stadium construction and new turf, which features the latest technology in synthetic playing fields, creating a safer field on which athletes can train and compete.

Reminder to 5th-Grade Families
