There is a scheduled Emergency Early Dismissal drill on Friday, April 21. All students will be dismissed 15 minutes early. Middle/high school students will be dismissed at 2 p.m., and elementary students will be dismissed at 3:05 p.m. Please note that parents picking up students at dismissal need to be to the Middle/High School no later than 1:45 p.m. and at the Elementary School no later than 2:45 p.m.
Parents who are interested in the addition of a full-day section to the existing pre-k program are encouraged to attend a Pre-Kindergarten Information Night on Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. in the CDE large cafeteria.
The school district is looking into adding a full-day section of pre-k to its already successful half-day program. The district hopes to positively affect more future kindergarteners by expanding the pre-k program to include a full-day section in addition to the current half-day sections.
We are very interested in the perspective of our district families and believe it is an important part of our planning. Our family/school partnership is central to our students’ successes.
REQUIRED SCHOOL CALENDAR CHANGES
April 6, 2017
Dear Cairo-Durham School District Families,
This letter is to remind you that due to the excessive number of snow days used this year, Cairo-Durham Central School District will be in session on April 20-21, 2017. In addition, in order to meet the 180 day "In Session" requirement, April 13th must also be changed to a full day of instruction for K-12.
Help ignite the creativity and a student interest in STEM by donating to the Camp Invention registration fees!
Do you know an organization or individual who should be recognized for their efforts? The Cairo-Durham CSD Board of Education has established a Distinguished Service Award and a Mustang Excellence Award to recognize and show appreciation to individuals, groups, businesses and/or students who have worked to support public education in the Cairo-Durham Central School Community.
For the first time in more than 10 years, Cairo-Durham Elementary sent two teams to the Region 4 Odyssey of the Mind competition held at Coxsackie-Athens CSD on Saturday, March 25, 2017. The CDE teams were made up of third and fourth grade students who showed a willingness to think outside the box.
