Principal's Message

“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together”-Vincent Van Gogh! And, boy did we have A LOT of small things!

We are celebrating a successful first week at Florida Mesa! It has brought smiles to our faces to see such happiness from our Mustangs. We want to again thank all of you for your patience as we’ve worked through kinks in our drop off and pick up routines. We have already seen a great reduction in the time it is taking in the morning and afternoon, and hope to continue to see these routines become even more efficient.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

Things are shaping up here at Florida Mesa and we are looking forward to seeing everyone very shortly. Our teachers are back in their classrooms, preparing their spaces for students based on guidance outlined in the district and our school’s Return to Learn Plan. They have also received training on using itsLearning and are beginning to build lessons within the new platform. As with so much of our new reality, there will be bumps along the way as we all learn this system together, but we are excited at the possibilities that it provides ALL of our learners.

Dear Parents,

Thank you again for your continued patience as we have been finalizing our Return To Learn Plan. We hope that you find our Return to Learn Plan to be informative, but also know that each of you will likely have questions that may not be addressed within the plan.

News & Announcements

Hello Mustang Families!

Kids' Camp will be open at Florida Mesa beginning on Tuesday, September 29. Registration will be available online beginning at NOON on Friday, September 25.

Native American Parent Advisory Committee Meeting

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.

Attendance Guides and Instructions for Remote and Blended Learners

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.

Meal Calendar Now Online

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.

Dear Families,

On September 5, 2020, 9-R was notified by San Juan Basin Public Health (SJBPH) that a student at Florida Mesa Elementary tested positive for COVID-19. The school and the district are working proactively with SJBPH to make the appropriate notifications and next steps for those who may have been in close contact with this individual.

Kids Eat Free!

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.
