DRMS' Principal Message

Hello Dolphins!  This is Kristen Faircloth, proud Principal at Durant Road Middle School, with your June 20, 2021 Family Message.


Happy Father's Day to our DRMS fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers and all who are role models to the children in their lives.  Thank you for the way you love and support our Dolphins.  Monday, June 21, 2021 is the last day of school for the 2020-21 school year!  We are looking forward to celebrating the year and our students during the End of Year Celebrations on Tuesday, June 22, 2021 between 9:00 AM and 12:00 PM.  We wanted to take a moment to thank our DRMS families for your support in helping make the 2020-21 school year a success for our students and staff.  While the year may have presented challenges at times, our families provided us grace and flexibility as we navigated the school during a global pandemic.  We are excited for the 2021-22 school year!  As we move into July, we will share important dates and information for the upcoming year.  Opportunities will be provided for students to visit campus and prepare for an incredible year.  In the mean time, enjoy a well deserved break!  


End of Year Celebrations: We are so excited to celebrate our Dolphins, their hard work and perseverance this school year. The end of year celebrations will be drive thru events on Tuesday, June 22, 2021.  Families will arrive in their designated area (6th and 7th grades in the staff parking lot and 8th grade in the bus loop) according to their last name. You are encouraged to decorate your vehicle in celebration of your student.  

  • Last name starting with letters A-H are invited from 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
  • Last name starting with letters I-P are invited from 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
  • Last name starting with Q-Z are invited from 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Please see the grade level invitations in the links below.  We can't wait to see you and your decorated vehicles!  If you are not able to join in the celebrations on Tuesday, June 22, 2021, you are welcome to pick up your child's items from the front office starting June 23, 2021.  


Return Materials/Devices to DRMS:  To end the school year, WCPSS Technology Services requests ALL WCPSS-issued WiFi hotspots be returned to the school.  Hotspots will be disabled after the last day of school.  Students will keep their WCPSS-issued Chromebooks, even if they are transferring or advancing to another WCPSS school. Students who are graduating or leaving WCPSS are required to return all devices to their school on or before their last day.


In-person students can return school materials to their Core 1 teacher.  Virtual Academy students can return these items to the front office or at our End of Year Celebrations on June 22, 2021.  This includes:

  • WCPSS library books

  • EL (language arts) novels

  • WCPSS- issued hotspots


Thank you for supporting DRMS,

Kristen Faircloth
