Albuquerque Public Schools is getting ready to welcome back thousands of students Monday for the start of full time in-person learning.
"It's a new day tomorrow, and learning in the pandemic is going to be something different that none of us have ever experienced, but we feel ready,” said Monica Armenta, executive director of APS Communications.
All APS students will have the option to return to the classroom, but they should expect to see some new changes in place.
Two-ply cloth masks or surgical masks will be required for all students, teachers, and staff. Bandanas and neck gaiters will not be allowed. Students are also encouraged to bring a resealable water bottle because water fountains will not be operational.
Students should also consider dressing in layers because windows and doors will be open to improve ventilation throughout schools.
Lastly, parents should know their child's transportation needs. APS said the bus situation will likely be complicated as they’re just getting started. If possible, parents should try to drive their child to school.
