The decision to implement an abbreviated day schedule requires the coordinated efforts of Dr. Sue Passell, Superintendent of Schools and Charlene Marmolejo, Jemez Valley Transportation Department. They gather information regarding weather and road conditions in order to determine the ability for our school buses to transport students to school safely.
Dr. Sue Passell will make the final decision to implement an abbreviated day schedule or cancellation of school.
The abbreviated day schedule is a shortened school day, which begins two hours later than the regular schedule. Bus schedules are also delayed two hours. Notification is usually made by 6:30 a.m. Should the complete cancellation of school be necessary, notification is usually given by 7:30 a.m. Please avoid calling the school or the district office for this information. It is recommended that families plan for such emergency closures.
If severe weather conditions materialize during the school day, the decision for an “early dismissal” will be made by 11:30 a.m. in order to arrange for school buses to arrive at your schools prior to normal dismissal time.
ALL PARENTS: Please make sure that your contact information (especially email addresses and home/cell phone numbers) have been updated in your child’s school record so that our emergency contact system will be able to reach the correct person in the case of emergencies or attendance calls!
