Beginning in the 2021-22 school year, Durling Middle School Students will be able to carry bookbags to class with them if they wish. Students will not be allowed to go to their lockers for supplies, books, etc. except at the designated times. All school materials are to be carried with them throughout the day. In order to accommodate this locker change, we will be allowing bookbags in class to assist them with carrying their things. The bookbags must be CLEAR, as this is a safety precaution since staff can see into the bags. Purses are to be left in the lockers, as are their phones. Durling PTO is going to be selling various types of clear bookbags as a courtesy, but you are free to purchase them from anywhere in any style, but they must be CLEAR. Click HERE for more details.
