COVID Reminders

APS follows COVID safe practices to help keep students healthy and in school.

The following does not include any new information; it serves only as a reminder.

Updated on October 12, 2022

As temperatures begin to drop, time spent indoors increases, potentially leading to a rise in the spread of COVID-19. 

The COVID-19 virus spreads easily, and symptoms can range from mild to severe which is why Albuquerque Public Schools, under the guidance of the New Mexico health and education departments, continues to implement COVID safe practices.

Learn more about COVID safe practices at Albuquerque Public Schools for the 2022-2023 school year.

Please be reminded students and employees should not attend school/work if sick.   

If students or employees are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, the individual should isolate for 5 days from the onset of symptoms.  It is recommended a COVID-19 test be taken.

APS will provide free at-home rapid antigen COVID test kits for students and employees experiencing symptoms (contact your child's school if a parent or supervisor if an employee).

The following information is available on the district’s website regarding COVID-19 guidelines.

  • When you are sick
  • COVID test options
  • When you test positive for COVID
  • When you test negative for COVID (applies to those experiencing symptoms)
  • When you are in close contact of COVID

Ensuring that you and your family are fully vaccinated (including all eligible boosters) remains the best defense against infection. The COVID-19 vaccine has been approved for ages 6 months and older. Register for the COVID Vaccine or Booster; APS partners are holding flu and COVID shot clinics at APS schools and facilities.
