Hybrid In-Person Learning Update
Beginning on Tuesday, January 19th, 2021, we will return to hybrid in-person learning at Sierra Vista Primary and White Mountain Elementary Schools, as well as for our special education students at Ruidoso Middle and High Schools. Tuesday will be a Blue day, while Thursday and Friday will resume Gold hybrid learning days. At the present time, we do not yet have a definitive start date for the return of middle and high school students to the hybrid model.  However, plans are in the works at the Public Education Department.
Moving forward, we continue encouraging everyone to wear a mask, wash your hands frequently, and avoid mass gatherings.  These public health recommendations continue to be encouraged, even if you have already received a vaccination.
A partir del martes 19 de enero del año 2021, regresaremos al aprendizaje híbrido en persona en las escuelas primarias de Sierra Vista y White Mountain, así como para nuestros estudiantes de educación especial en las escuelas secundaria y preparatoria de Ruidoso. El martes será un día del grupo azul, mientras que el jueves y el viernes se reanudarán los días de aprendizaje híbridos para el grupo dorado. En la actualidad, aún no tenemos una fecha de inicio definitiva para el regreso de los estudiantes de secundaria y preparatoria al modelo híbrido. Sin embargo, se están trabajando planes en el Departamento de Educación Pública. En el futuro, seguimos alentando a todos a usar máscara facial, lavarse las manos con frecuencia y evitar las reuniones masivas. Se siguen fomentando estas recomendaciones de salud pública, incluso si ya ha recibido una vacuna.
