Changes to Attendance Policy (2018-19)
Regular attendance often leads to greater academic success and lower dropout rates. Therefore, we are increasing our efforts to prevent chronic absenteeism at Cairo-Durham. Over the summer, we evaluated our recent attendance data and began developing a plan to improve student attendance.
Local Organizations Donate Hundreds of Backpacks
Hundreds of backpacks were filled with school supplies and distributed to Cairo-Durham students in August. Many thanks to the Essendant Charitable Foundation, as well as Catskill Elks Lodge and Foresters Financial, for their generosity and helping our students start the school year right.
School Resource Officers
We are pleased to welcome two School Resource Officers (SROs) to our campuses this year. Deputies Joanne Rivera and Steven Espel from the Greene County Sheriff’s Department will be present in Cairo-Durham schools five days a week during the upcoming school year.
