We will start testing NM-MSSA (state proficiency assessment) in April. I have attached a calendar of grade levels and days they are testing, please try to ensure your child is present and on time for the days their grade level are testing (3rd, 4th, 5th only) as this helps with the decrease of makeup testing and then we are finished! Please encourage students to get a good night’s sleep and eat breakfast at home or at school!

According to the press release that discusses parents not wanting their children’s information released through media or their pictures shared in the yearbook, etc. If this is your current wish- you MUST come into the office and fill out a new form. Even if when registering you marked no release of information in Skyward- We MUST have a form on file for the remainder of the year to continue with this. Additionally, this form is only good for the remainder of the school year and must be completed annually by parents and kept on file at the school.

Please check the lost and found as we have many coats, jackets, shirts, and other items piling up.

  • In an effort to keep our students safe, all visitors must stop at the front desk, show ID, and sign in. Teachers are available before and after school to visit with parents. In order to limit classroom disruptions, we will be glad to schedule classroom visits or visits with the teacher as needed.
  • Please make sure the people who will be picking your children up are on their emergency card. Students will not be released to individuals who are not on the emergency cards.

Transportation changes need to happen before 2:15. This is for the safety of your child!

School Hours: 7:30 - 4:00
