Reporting Times for APS Employees During Severe Weather Conditions

The best resource for information on school delays and closings the APS website. Information also will be available through Facebook, Twitter (ABQschools), local media, and through School Messenger notifications.

Reporting times for APS employees during severe weather conditions vary depending on contract and work site. The following information outlines reporting times for employees on days when schools are delayed, released early or closed.

School and Administration Office Closings

    If schools and administrative offices are closed, employees contracted to work 248 or more days a year will be allowed to take eight hours of annual or personal leave.

    School Closings (Administration Offices Open)

      If schools are closed for students, but administrative offices remain open:

        • Custodial staff and clerical staff contracted to work 248 days or more a year are expected to report for duty at their schools as close to their regular schedule as possible.
        • All district administrative and support personnel are expected to report for duty as close their regular schedule as safely possible. This includes employees who work at City Centre, Montgomery, Aztec, Lincoln, etc. This allows a maximum delay of two hours. Arriving late to work is only acceptable when severe weather causes hazardous driving conditions, not due to mechanical issues caused by cold weather.

          If an employee does not report to work, s/he must take eight hours of annual leave or one personal leave day.

          Abbreviated Days (2-Hour Delay)

            If schools are on a two-hour delay:

              • All employees (school based and non-school based) are expected to report for duty as close to their regular report time as is safely possible. This allows a maximum delay of two hours. Arriving late to work is only acceptable when severe weather causes hazardous driving conditions, not due to mechanical issues caused by cold weather.
                • If an employee does not report to work, s/he must take eight hours of annual leave or one personal leave day.

                Early Dismissals

                  If administrative offices are dismissed early:

                    • There will be no loss of pay or leave for those employees who reported to work.
                    • If an employee does not report to work, s/he must take eight hours of annual leave or one personal leave day.

                    If schools are dismissed early:

                      • School-based staff are also dismissed after the last student is picked up, since the school will be locked up. This includes the principal, custodial staff and clerical staff. There will be no loss of pay or leave for those employees who reported to work.
                      • All district administrative and support personnel are expected to remain on duty at their work locations until their regular release time. This includes City Centre, Montgomery, Aztec, Lincoln, etc.
