School Delays and Closures

A message to employees from Superintendent Raquel Reedy

Message from Superindendent

Good Morning,

As you know schools are closed today due to icy roads and dangerous driving conditions. Safety is a priority for everyone in the APS family.

Teachers have built in days to make up for time lost, but unfortunately, that’s not the case for all employees. Still, safety is first. Please take whatever time you need to get to work today. If the roads in your area are too treacherous to attempt, use your best judgement. You can take a personal day off or work with your supervisor later to make up for time missed today.

If you are already at work and fear conditions will worsen, you have the same options.

We’ve been in contact with the Albuquerque Police Department and they are discouraging all travel right now. Closing schools is one of the toughest decisions we make. We monitor and manage as many variables as we have control over –  mother nature is not one of them.

Thank you for your patience and commitment. Please, stay safe.

Sincerely,

Superintendent Raquel Reedy signature
