Did you know that about 85% of drivers are speeding when they pass Cairo-Durham Middle/High School? That is almost 9 out of every 10 vehicles! Despite this finding from a 2016 New York State Department of Transportation traffic study, the DOT denied the Cairo-Durham Central School District's request to install a traffic signal in front of the school on Route 145. Therefore, we are focusing on driver education and developing traffic safety campaigns to encourage safe and cautious driving.
The Healthy Kids Extended Day Program is a before and after school program at Cairo-Durham Elementary for students enrolled in an elementary or pre-k program. The program offers options for 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 days per week.

There is a $150/family cap on registration fees, regardless of the number of children. There are reduced fees for families qualifying for free or reduced lunch (proof required).

For the annual Market Day fundraising event at CDE, fifth graders created a variety of products to sell to students and school staff. They also had to create names for their products and "businesses" to display on their tables in the large gym.
Kids could purchase tickets to use as currency (two tickets cost $1) and shop for handmade items costing 1-3 tickets. The wide variety of Market Day products included headbands, slime, dream catchers, piggy banks, sensory tools and small toys.
