Durham Family and Friends,

As the Interim Superintendent of Durham Unified School District, I would
like to share with you just some of the amazing work our staff is doing. In
these uncertain times it is so refreshing to see the dedication, selflessness
and work ethic that I am witnessing throughout the District. Teachers and
Administrators have been working tirelessly to support learning via online
or educational packets. In addition, students are receiving weekday meals
from Food Services.

Staff are working modified schedules throughout the week to keep
necessary work flowing and the maintenance crew is working diligently to
clean, disinfect and sanitize our facilities. In addition, we have established
public office hours at all three sites plus the district office from 8 am to
Noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

As always, the Durham staff stand together and are working collaboratively
to supply our students with the best education possible during these
unfamiliar times.

I hope this correspondence finds you well.

Best Regards,
Joanne Parsley
Interim Superintendent
