Ring the Bell: Return to In-Person Learning

Schools are open! Under the PED Reentry Guidance Document, all students are eligible to return to the building each day (with exceptions for schools and districts impacted by tribal sovereignty). COVID-safe practices as outlined in the updated NMPED Toolkit are still in effect, and schools must practice social distancing to the greatest extent possible. In addition, music, choir, band, school sports, extracurricular programming, and other NMAA-sanctioned activities may resume at all schools, in accordance with COVID-safe practices and NMAA guidelines.
