Anti-racism Anti-Oppression Hotline
The NMPED Anti-Racism Anti-Oppression Hotline – (505)-226-3911 – is now available for students, families and community members to report school-based incidents of racism, injustice or discrimination against anyone. Callers will reach a trained department employee from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday; if calling after hours, they can leave a message. The hotline was established as a requirement of the Black Education Act, passed in the 2021 General Session of the Legislature.

Students can arrive on campus beginning at 7:40am. Students will meet their teachers in the same area outside as they did at the end of last year. When the bell rings, the teachers will take students to class.

Breakfast will be served in the classroom but students will go to the cafeteria for lunch.

Elementary students are dismissed at 3:55 and middle/high school at 4pm.

All students must leave campus immediately after dismissal unless participating in Athletics. Athletes must leave campus as soon as practice is over. Students cannot remain on the playground after dismissal and siblings cannot wait for athletes in practice. Unless directly participating with the coach, students must leave campus. 

All students must wear masks while indoors but do not need a mask when outdoors. Please send your student with two masks: one to wear and a spare just in case.
