Superintendent's Message

May 27, 2020

Dear Bulldog Family,

First, I want to thank you again for the trust you placed in us throughout the implementation of the continuous learning plans. Your efforts to fill your roles in implementing the plans were remarkable. We know there is now much uncertainty as we anticipate what the 2020–2021 school year will look like. It is our hope that we will safely be able to have all kids back on August 13 - the first day of school!

Here are some things we want to make sure you are aware of:

  • The New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) created a task force to develop guidelines for districts to reopen schools. The goal of the task force is to provide those guidelines by July 1 so that districts can plan accordingly. We are asking you to participate in a survey titled the New Mexico Family Education Survey. Please take a moment to read the NMPED's press release regarding the task force.
  • You will see that the press release also introduces a new platform called NM Vistas that provides information to families regarding New Mexico schools and districts. We are proud to share the designation of Artesia Public as a spotlight district for achieving academic performance in the top 25% in the state.
  • The New Mexico Activities Association will be releasing the guidelines for summer activities. We know the importance of getting our students active and engaged as soon as possible. We will follow the guidelines of the NMAA to ensure our kids are safe and have as much access as allowable to our facilities and coaches, sponsors, and directors.
  • Please continue to check our website and watch for updates through the School Messenger email system and the Remind app for the latest information.

It's great to be a Bulldog!

Sincerely/Sinceramente,

      John Ross Null
