After careful review of input, statutory attendance requirements and her commitment to ensuring that our students recognize every school day matters; Dr. Veronica C. Garcia has called for an early release day for all schools in the SFPS District on March 16th.
See following letter from the Superintendent to staff, families and community.
On Thursday, March 16, 2017, all Santa Fe Public Schools will release at the following times:
Are you for Pre-K for Santa Fe?
We have 48 days. Forty-eight days until we all have an opportunity to bring Pre-K to Santa Fe.
With your help, we convinced Santa Fe’s City Council to let us all vote on May 2 to create 1,000 new Pre-K seats for Santa Fe’s families. That’s 1,000 opportunities, 1,000 futures, and 1,000 hopes and dreams.
In these next forty-eight days, we’re going to see a lot of misinformation from the Soda Industry. And they’re going to have an endless supply of money to back it up. We’re asking for your help. Can you donate now to make Pre-K to Santa Fe a reality?
We will need your support, and that of all of your friends and family>

Bighorn sheep captured and relocated to Cochiti Canyon

They also wanted to reduce the number of sheep along N.M. 38 between Questa and Red River. Numerous sheep in recent years have been killed in traffic collisions on the rural highway. A motorcyclist also died in one of those crashes.
