November 2021 COVID-19 Summary

November was a whirlwind with the push to the holiday break. We hope our families enjoyed a little reprieve as we head into the two-week home stretch to the winter break. As families may be aware, our goal this year has remained the same, as we want to optimize student access to in-person learning while simultaneously promoting health and safety by minimizing the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Here are some COVID-19 updates from 9-R for the month of November.

COVID-19 Serial Testing Update for the Community

The Durango School District 9-R has a goal of optimizing student access to in-person learning while simultaneously promoting health and safety by minimizing the risk of COVID-19 transmission. The many mitigation strategies suggested and supported by the CDPHE and our local health authorities play an important role in ensuring success with this goal.

COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics for 5-11 Year Olds

Last week, the CDC recommended the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5-11. Now, everyone in the Durango community ages 5 and older is eligible to be vaccinated and can help protect themselves and their loved ones against COVID-19. The approval of the COVID-19 vaccine for young children is an important step to helping reduce our risk for infection and transmission in our schools and our community.
