DRMS' Principal Message
Happy Sunday Dolphins! This is Kristen Faircloth, proud Principal at Durant Road Middle School, with your March 28, 2021 Family Message.
We hope everyone stayed safe during the storms this weekend. I know we are all looking forward to sunny spring days and enjoying being outside. It is hard to believe we only have two more days of the 3rd Quarter. All DRMS students will engage in Remote Learning on Monday, March 29, 2021 and Tuesday, March 30, 2021. Please continue to encourage your child to complete and submit all work by the end of the day on Tuesday and finish the quarter strong. We wish your family a wonderful track out starting Wednesday, March 31, 2021 through April 13, 2021. DRMS Dolphins will return to learning on Wednesday, April 14, 2021.
Please take a moment to read the Family Message below as there is a lot of great information. Let us know if you have any immediate questions or concerns that need addressed. You can communicate with your grade level Assistant Principal or Counselor or call the Durant Road Middle School front office at 919.870.4098
