So sorry and thank you to Riley Douglas for letting me know I had the wrong link for the Graduation Survey in the last draft! It's corrected below, or you can access it here.

Dear Seniors and Families,

Many thanks to all those who joined us last night! Here is the slideshow from our Graduation Meeting, for those who couldn't attend or those who'd like a review.

We discussed several possible locations for Graduation, which is most likely to be held outside so we can invite families to attend and we can safely distance (DHS stadium, FLC stadium, Buckley Park, Durango Mesa Park, River Bend Ranch, etc).I'll keep everyone posted as our plans evolve--and please keep reaching out to me with input, too!
