Parents/Guardians and Students of Lazaro Garcia Middle School and Mora High School:

Due to the Governor Mandated School Closures, we will be offering Virtual Parent-Teacher Conferences via Zoom today, October 22, from 1-6 pm.Please click on the links below to meet with your child(ren)’s teachers.Please note that once you click on the link you will be placed in a waiting room.The teacher will then invite you into the meeting.This will allow for teachers to meet with parents individually.If you do not have access to a computer, you may use the Zoom Number 1-877-853-5247 or 1-888-788-0099 and enter the meeting ID code and password.

I would like to thank all the parents and students who participated in the Distance Learning Survey that was posted a couple of weeks ago.After a review of data, we felt the need to provide more time for “Live Instruction” to best meet your child(ren)s academic needs.Beginning November 2, Lazaro Garcia Middle School and Mora High School will be extending their remote learning schedule.A letter will be sent home to parents and students with regards to the change. With this new schedule your child(ren) will have an allotted time to begin and hopefully complete their homework in class.

Thank you, parents, for your continued support during this time. If you any questions, please feel free to contact me via 575-387-3123 or my cell at 505-603-6454.

Yours in leadership and learning
