Potential Snow Information

Good Morning Amazing Dragon Families!  

Just a note for your information.  We are expecting snow later in the week.  Should there be a closure or delay we will follow Albuquerque Public Schools’ decision.  Announcements are as early as 6:00 am.  Should you decide to stay at home due to your travel situation, please have your students log in online.  If we are on a delay, start time would be 10:15 am rather than 8:15 am.  If students attend online we will not have to add a day at the end of the year.
