No School Delays or Closures During Remote Learning

As long as students are learning in the red (remotely), classes will continue on time and as scheduled.

Snow days will look a little different for Albuquerque Public Schools during remote learning. No need to wait for a call, monitor social media, or check the APS website. As long as students are learning in the red (remotely), classes will continue on time and as scheduled come rain or shine, sleet or snow.

The only students whose schedules may be impacted by inclement weather are those in the APS Special Ed in the Red program who attend school in small groups. Those families will be notified when classes need to be moved online during inclement weather. 

Mobile WiFi spots won't be available during bad weather. 

In the event of inclement weather, keep in touch with child care providers regarding program closures.

APS, as always, will accommodate students who lose internet access during a storm. Students are encouraged to complete assignments or engage in learning that doesn't require connectivity. Once power is restored, they should touch base with their teachers and make arrangements to make up work, just as they would if they missed class during a more traditional school year. Attendance during remote learning is based on engagement, so as long as students are engaged, a power outage shouldn't impact their learning.

Mobile WiFi spots won't be available during bad weather. 

Check the APS website to find out if and where grab and go meals will be distributed during inclement weather.

APS has extended remote learning through at least the end of December. Once schools shift to yellow – a hybrid model that combines in-person and online learning – weather delays will be announced through more traditional means including robocalls, social media and APS.edu.

Many APS employees also are working remotely. If road conditions make it difficult to get to work, employees deemed essential are asked to stay in touch with their supervisor and report to work as soon as they safely can.
