Superintendent's Message

June 24, 2020

Dear Bulldog Family,

As many of you are aware, districts recently received the guidance document from the Public Education Department, providing us with the requirements, expectations, and recommendations for reopening schools in August. To view the document, please visit  the New Mexico Public Education Department Reentry Guide.

The superintendents’ association and school boards’ association had calls with the Secretary of Education. There were a number of questions, comments, and concerns raised. We are still waiting on answers to many of those questions. However, our next steps are to begin working with our administrators, department heads, and members of our Parent Advisory Council, Staff Advisory Council, and Equity Council to put together the best plan possible for the students, families, and staff members of the Artesia Public Schools working within the given guidelines. Our goal is to present a draft plan to our school board on July 13.

Please read the continuation of the June 24, 2020, family letter for more important information.
