Superintendent's Message

      Dear Bulldog Families,

      Thank you for participating in the recent survey regarding your experiences with remote and APS virtual learning. That feedback has helped us make decisions about successful practices we need to continue as well as those that need to be changed or replaced. We hope you have seen the results of that feedback this week and that things continue to improve each day. Watch for a follow-up survey in the coming weeks. In the meantime, I encourage you to reach out to your child’s teacher or principal with any questions or concerns. District administrators are also available as needed.

      Unfortunately, we learned that Eddy County does not yet meet the criteria for a return to hybrid learning. According to the department of health data, the county currently is exceeding the average daily case count and test positivity rate thresholds. The links below will take you to the current map and graph. We will be prepared to enter hybrid learning when we are able to, and we hope that is soon. We know the best place for learning is in school but appreciate your continued efforts to make remote learning as successful as possible. If you are having a hard time motivating your child to participate, please let us know. We can help! We don’t want any child to feel there is no hope and no reason to keep trying.

      Please read Superintendent Null's entire family letter from September 18, 2020.
