Shannon Krum in front of Cairo-Durham Middle School

August 27, 2019

Dear CDMS Families,

As we continue our search for a new middle school principal, we would like you to know that Ms. Shannon Krum will be filling in as the interim principal at CDMS until a successful candidate is in place. Ms. Krum was appointed to the interim principal position by the Board of Education on Thursday, August 22, 2019.

Some of you may already be familiar with Ms. Krum, who has been teaching Math at Cairo-Durham High School for 11 years. We are excited to have Ms. Krum take on the role of interim principal and I have no doubt that she will make a positive impact on the middle school community. She is available to assist you and your student in any way she can, and can be contacted at 518-622-0490 or

Your child’s success and well-being remain a top priority during this transition. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the District Office at 518-622-8534 or the CDMS main office at 518-622-0490.
