Hello Dolphins! This is Kristen Faircloth, proud principal at Durant Road Middle School, with your July 24, 2022 Family Message.
Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! We hope you and your family have enjoyed a relaxing and fun-filled break making memories and recharging your batteries. The DRMS faculty and staff have been working hard to prepare and welcome you to the best year yet!
Please take a minute to read through the Family Message below to ensure you have the information you need to be set up for success. Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or needs you may have as we are here to support you.
Grade Level Academies: We are beyond excited to offer our yearly Grade Level Academies at Durant Road Middle School! The purpose of our academies is a combination of a “Meet the Teacher” and “Open House” event for students and one family member to attend together and stay the entire session. Please note, this is not a floating event and will start promptly at your assigned time.
During this event, students will receive their schedule, walk through their classes, hear information about their academic classes, and hear an overview of important information about our school. Parents/guardians will also have an opportunity to hear from the principal and grade-level assistant principal, and visit our cafeteria with rotations for “DRMS 101”. Some of our cafeteria rotations will include Meal Benefit applications, transportation, medication drop off, PowerSchool sign-up, schedule change requests, PTA membership, Carpool tags, volunteer registration, pick-up of previous year’s yearbooks, and Choral Booster membership.
Please plan to park in our school’s bus parking lot. If you are looking at the entrance to Durant Road Middle School, the bus lot entrance is to the left.
Our Academy Events will take place on the following dates and times.

Individual Student Reports (ISRs): A message went out to parents on July 20th about Individual Student Reports (ISRs).
Middle or high school (grades 6-13) parents are able to view their child’s ISRs in PowerSchool, beginning July 20th. The ISRs will only be viewable in the web-based version of PowerSchool. They are currently not viewable in the mobile app.
If parents have questions about how to interpret these results, please view this short video .
