Important Dates for Back to School - August 2017


Kids Camp (after school care – sign up early!!)  --- Kids' Camp registration will begin in August.  Updated information and policies pertaining to the 2017-18 school year, along with a specific registration start date, will be available on the Kids' Camp webpage at www.durangoschools.org under Families beginning in June.  As always, the number of students we will be able to register at each school will depend on the number of staff hired as of the registration date.  You are encouraged to explore alternative after school options in the event that Kids' Camp will have limited space available the first few months of school.  It is also good to remember that the Boys and Girls Club is usually closed the first two weeks we are back in school. The Kids' Camp office will be closed from June 22-July 21, 2017, it will re-open for the 2017/18 school year on July 24th.

School Office Summer Hours closed until July 28th   ---   The Park Elementary office will be closed for the summer and will reopen on July 28th (Thursday). If you need to register a kindergartner or a new student, please go to www.durangoschools.org and choose the “Registration tab” in the middle of the page.

Meet Your Teacher – August 18th (Friday)   ---   Meet Your Teacher at Park Elementary on Friday, August 18, 2017 from 8am-9am.  This will be a great opportunity to bring in school supplies and see your classrooms. For those families who preordered school supplies last spring, those supplies will be delivered to classrooms before the first day of school.

Fall Check-In – August 18th (Friday)   ---   Fall Check-In on Friday, August 18, 2017 from 8am - 10am.  This will be a great time for families to finish up any unfinished paperwork, as well as sign up for bus and nutrition services.  Those departments will help with this process and staff will be on-site to support families.

First Day of School – August 21st (Monday)   ---   Please note that we are starting on a Monday this year, August 21, 2017.  For the last few years we have started on a Tuesday so as to avoid Monday early release confusion. With that said, Monday, August 21, will be a regular school day and there will NOT be early release.  School will release at 3:00pm. Kindergarten will stagger start the first week, more details to come later.
