Regarding Chromebooks, if your child needs one, please have them stop in the office. Please know that we have ordered more chargers and will distribute them as soon as they arrive. Until then, students may use a charger in their classroom during the day.

Regarding masks: as per New Mexico guidelines, all individuals in elementary schools (regardless of vaccination status) are required to wear a mask while in the school building; on school transportation; at an indoor school-sponsored event. Masks must completely cover the nose and mouth, and cannot have ventilation holes. If you or your child do not have a mask, we are happy to provide you with one in the office. If you are coming into the office, please wear a mask, sign in, and fill out a visitor badge if you are moving beyond the office. Outside, at recess, and during lunch, students may remove their masks. It is our intention to keep all of our students in school, and safely. We have had great success with students being responsible with mask-wearing, and we appreciate your support with this. It is important to share that if students refuse to comply with the mask requirements, we will first give two verbal warnings and always provide masks to them. Upon the third verbal warning, we will call home and meet with the student. Upon the fourth violation, we will require the student to check in with the office each morning to ensure mask compliance; a fifth violation will result in a parent and principal meeting. We recognize that it can be uncomfortable to wear a mask all day, and our teachers are working hard to provide as many mask breaks as possible outside, in addition to three recesses outside, as well as outside instruction when possible. There is an online schooling option for students who cannot wear masks.
