The district is closely monitoring the San Gabriel Valley Complex Fire. We are in communication with the emergency responders and will provide updates as needed as we receive them. Due to poor air quality conditions created by the fire and the extreme heat, any planned sports practices or other activities that may take place this week will be adjusted to ensure the safety of our students and employees. As of now, daycare and preschool programs at Beardslee and Andres Duarte are open as regularly scheduled. Precautions will be taken to limit outdoor time due to smoke and heat.
Over 300 special needs athletes from across the San Gabriel Valley competed May 20, 2016 at the Duarte High School track and field sponsored by the Special Olympics Southern California Chapter.

Congratulations to the entire Maxwell Elementary School community for becoming an official International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP) school.
Walk into a Duarte Unified school today and you will be impressed not only by the caliber of instruction and stimulating learning that is taking place in the classrooms, but by the actual buildings themselves. Thanks to funds provided by Measure E, a multi-million dollar bond.
