The following FAQs are intended to update guidance by clarifying questions with answers since our schools will be physically closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.
Q: Are CCSD staff able to access the school buildings during the closure?
A: At this time, we are currently not allowing access to any of our buildings for safety concerns. We have also drastically reduced our staffing levels to ensure we are following the federal guidelines and NM Governor’s orders. We are making these decisions based on factoids about the COVID-19 pandemic.
