Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe we are into our last week of school!! What an amazing year-one we won’t soon forget! Although there were clear struggles, we also grew closer to our families and students, and became a tighter knit school community! Thank you for being our partner and for your unending support.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

We want to wish everyone a fantastic, safe, and healthy Spring Break. All Durango School District schools will be closed March 15-19, 2021 for Spring Break and we will resume our current instructional schedule (4 days a week in-person/Wednesdays-remote) on March 22nd. We are hoping to be able to start in-person learning on Wednesdays if transmission and positivity rates stabilize after this break.

Stepping Up To Help Kids

Kelly Duvall is the personification of an Empathetic Collaborator, says Tony Roderick, Assistant Principal at Florida Mesa Elementary (FME). “She just volunteered to take over a very difficult situation. Our newest 1st grade teacher resigned the day before school started” he says. “Kelly volunteered to take on the long-term sub responsibilities as a wonderful teammate, as well as making sure these students have a quality experience in their first few weeks of school.”
