DRMS' Principal Message

Hello Dolphins!  This is Kristen Faircloth, principal at Durant Road Middle School, with your March 22, 2020 message.  


We hope you are doing well during these challenging times.  Please know that the Durant Road Middle School community is here to support you in any way possible.  We will continue to share resources for learning at home as well as updates on food distribution, etc.  Currently, staff members are working hard to virtually connect, prepare for a return to normal instruction, and planning for the 2020-2021 school year.  I know I can speak for the entire DRMS staff, we miss our Dolphins!  Thank you for your patience and understanding with all the recent changes.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.  Stay healthy and safe while social distancing!  


WCPSS Virtual Learning Resources:  This past Friday, WCPSS shared with all families how to access this Remote Learning Resources site through a family email message (found here).  This site is intended to provide families with learning resources to access while school is suspended.  These resources and activities are optional and supplemental to core instructional. The assignments will not be graded nor are they required.  I am hopeful our DRMS students will take advantage of this site to continue their learning during these challenging times.  Please also be considerate of our teachers’ personal situation during this pandemic. They are working hard to manage their own households as well as supporting DRMS students.  Thank you for patience and flexibility!


WCPSS Food Distribution Sites:  WCPSS has added 11 new lunch food distribution sites (27 total).  These new sites will begin serving lunch from 11-1 (M-F) beginning this coming Monday, March 23.  Please check out this link below.


Thank you for supporting DRMS,

Kristen Faircloth
