It's that time of year. The Durango Education Foundation is now accepting nominations for Outstanding Employee of the Year. Nominees can be any 9-R staff or teacher and are open to staff, students, parents, and teachers.

Nominations are now open for the Durango Education Foundation's Outstanding Employee awards. Nominate any 9-R teacher or staff member who has made a positive impact on you or your students' lives. Anyone can nominate students, staff, parents, or community members. Categories include elementary school, middle school, high school, and support staff. All nominations are due May 5th at 11:59 PM. Don't be late. The awards will be announced at the 9-R Staff Appreciation Celebration on May 16th. Find the form online at the Durango Education Foundation website. Roadwork has begun on the reconstruction of North College Drive. The work between Richer Drive and Aquarius Place includes water and sewer system infrastructure improvements, surface repaving, and traffic-calming measures. Work is planned to go throughout the summer with the goal to be completed early enough to avoid snow and the winter holidays. Traffic will continue throughout the construction, but will be alternating one lane with traffic flaggers during working hours 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM.
