LAPS Superintendent Announces Pause In In-Person Instruction In All Schools

Interim Superintendent
Los Alamos Public Schools

After careful consideration and a review of positive tests, quarantine and isolation numbers, attendance data, and available staff, we have decided to pause in person instruction at all Los Alamos Public Schools until January 24. Through our contact tracing, we have seen indications of spread of Covid in our schools. Students will temporarily have remote learning from Tuesday, January 18 (Monday, January 17 is a holiday, no school) until January 24. Students will return to campus for in person instruction on January 24. We will adjust Mountain Elementary to return on January 24 with the rest of the district. Although, we will review the data, we expect all LAPS students to return to their school sites on Monday, January 24. 

Principals and teachers will communicate with parents and students today about how to access remote instruction at each school. Teachers will send materials home with students today. 

We appreciate your patience through this time.
