Las Cruces Public Schools revisits plan to bring students back for in-person learning


Students could return to classroom as soon as late February

Las Cruces Public Schools Superintendent Karen Trujillo says the district is revisiting plans that have already been developed for a safe return.

On Monday, New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced in her State of the State address that schools can return to classrooms by February 8.

Lujan Grisham added that families can still opt in for remote learning if they choose to do so.

At the next board meeting, LCPS will discuss plans and recommendations for a possible hybrid return.

The district says if the board votes on a hybrid plan, the earliest students could return to school would be February 22.
