Football Season 2020 Recap

The Demons had a 0-3-1 record in State Championship games prior to Saturday. The closest they came to a Championship was in 1954 when they played in class A and were co-champions with Lamar High School. The final score of the ‘54 game was 7-7. At the time, high school football didn’t allow overtime, so the Demons ended up as Co-Champions with Lamar. The last time the Demons made it to state was in 1988 against Grand Junction, but Durango came up short, so this is the first outright championship for the Demon football team.

We're asking families to take the survey each Friday so that we can make adjustments early in the next school week. We're excited to hear what you have to say so we know what's going well and what we can make better.

Instructional Feedback Survey

EMS hosting Book eFair!

While families won't be able to browse the shelves filled with exciting titles this year, we have created virtual shelves to peruse. Using the brand new Follett eFair platform, we're able to offer even more books than normal. Through his eFair, students can browse titles, create wish lists, and parents can make purchases from the comfort of your home! And, since we're partnering with Follett, a larger portion of each purchase will go toward funding our school library than with a traditional Scholastic fair!

The eFair begins on Monday, November 9th and will run until December 1. Books purchased will be delivered directly to students at school for an exciting unboxing!

When the fair begins (remember, we have to wait until Monday), it will be accessible through the link below. If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact Steve Tidwell (stidwell@durangoschools.org).
