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.
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.
The College Board named Cairo-Durham Central School District to the AP® District Honor Roll, a distinction shared by 433 school districts across the United States and Canada.
The AP District Honor Roll recognizes school districts in the U.S. and Canada that achieved increases in access to Advanced Placement® (AP) courses for a broader number of students, while simultaneously maintaining or improving the rate at which their AP students earned scores of 3 or high on an AP exam.
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.
Educators from the Center for Vascular Awareness in Albany visited Biology students at Cairo-Durham High School on April 11 for V-Healthy Day. The day is devoted to teaching students about the importance of maintaining a healthy vascular system. Students learned about the effects of hypertension, diabetes, obesity, smoking and genetics on their vascular health. They used sphygmomanometers to take blood pressure.
