Welcome to Regional School District 13!

Pickett Lane

Pickett Lane is now open!

The ribbon cutting ceremony was held today, Thursday, November 20th at the new culvert over Allyn Brook and Pickett Lane is now officially open to traffic coming from Main Street, Durham.  Starting tomorrow afternoon we will be instituting a two-wave bus pick-up schedule at Strong School and at Coginchaug High School.  Students should listen carefully for instructions at their school.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

Register now for the 9th Annual Community Round-up!

On Saturday, December 6, 2014 from 9:00-12:00 teams made up of students, teachers, parents and community members will be roving the town in a scavenger like fashion.  Students will travel in teams of three or four following assigned routes to collect non-perishable items, canned goods, donations, and gift cards that will be distributed to the needy.  This community project has been an annual Durham and Middlefield event for the last 8 years and has filled both towns’ food pantries each year.  Additional food items are also delivered to the Amazing Grace food pantry in Middletown .  Last year, 12,905 food items and over $2,600.00 in cash and gift cards were collected!

Students register in teams with their schools.  Those who prefer to remain at the high school can assist by sorting, counting, & packing.  We also need volunteers to help load the trucks and then unload them at Amazing Grace.  Students must fill out a permission slip from their school to participate as a volunteer.  A sizable number of volunteers are needed to make this day a success.  In keeping with the spirit of the day, items will be counted for a grand total only.  All volunteers will eligible for raffle prizes and breakfast will be served at 8:30, sponsored by the Durham Women’s Club. Registration will be from 8:30 to 8:45.  All participants and volunteers are welcome.

This cross-age project, cosponsored by the Local Wellness Coalition, provides an opportunity for students and adults to work together and experience the true spirit of the holiday season.  For further information, please contact Kathy Bottini, Melissa Cook, or Rebecca Sinusas Co-chairs, Strong Guidance Department at 860-349-7255.

Registration deadline extended until Monday, December 1, 2014.
