Superintendent's Message

April 9, 2021

Dear Bulldog Families,

Orange, of course, is my favorite color. But I am liking turquoise this week! It was exciting to see Eddy County turn turquoise this week in the states "Red to Green Framework," providing even more opportunities for our community and especially our local businesses. I hope you can make it a priority to support them by shopping and eating locally.

At school, the only significant change is that we will no longer require the temperature screening of students. The CDC does not recommend daily screening for students, and the NM Department of Health of NM Public Education Department does not require it. Our protocols also state that temperature screening of students will discontinue when our country is turquoise. All other COVID-safe practices are still in place, including the wearing of masks.

We invite you to please read the continuation of our April 9, 2021, superintendent's letter.
