Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Students,

We want to start off our third week of online learning with a great big THANK YOU to all of you! We have been so impressed at the ways in which you have set up daily schedules and home school rooms, assisted with getting your students set up online or with their paper packets, joined in on social hours and read alouds, and were patient and supportive during technical challenges or downright confusion!! We appreciate you modelling a growth mindset with your students during these difficult first weeks! I don’t think the well known phrase “It takes a village” has ever been more accurate! Thank you!

Dear Families,

The holidays are upon us and we are learning about how to be empathetic and care for one another at Florida Mesa. Our amazing PTO is collecting items to fill numerous holiday cheer boxes for some of our families and our students are currently engaged in a community food drive. We love that our students are learning to care for their friends and those less fortunate in our community as part of their school experience! Thanks for your participation and support in making these efforts successful for so many in our school and surrounding community.

District Weekly Update - 4.1.2020

Hello 9-R families and members of our Durango community. Thank you for your work with your children to keep them engaged in learning during these unusual times. While we have started distance learning, we recognize that our families are in different places. First and foremost, please know that our intent is not to overwhelm our families, but to provide enough academic engagement to meet the varying needs of students across our community. We know this is a stressful time for all of us. If you are finding the work to be overwhelming, communicate with your child’s teacher or your school leaders. Our goal is to keep our children engaged in learning, but we also want to ensure that we partner with families during these trying times.

As we all know things change quickly and many families are asking about the governor’s stay at home order and public health order (attached). We wanted to provide some clarity. Please know that education is considered essential. Additionally, the order states that traveling for the purpose of “...receiving materials for distance learning, for receiving meals, and any other related services from educational institutions…” is an approved purpose.
