IMPORTANT SAFETY UPDATES, District News, and Information
July 2, First Day of School for
All Elementary Schools

Deming Public Schools elementary students will start school instruction for the 2019-2020 School Year on July 2. K-5 Plus “Full STEAM Ahead” is funded by the New Mexico State Legislature, which allocated funding for Teachers’ Salaries, Instructional Materials, and Transportation. In the past, Deming Public Schools K-5 Plus had only 1,200 seats available for students to get a head start on their education. Now this opportunity is open to all K-5 students, extending school instruction for 25 days.
“K-5 Plus will give us the leading edge in education, for the ability to offer this learning opportunity to every K-5 student in the community.” said Fred Parker, Chief Academic Officer. “The district is well aware that this is a transition for the community, we want to continue to offer this as an opportunity for every child, but we also recognize that we need to be flexible due to family plans and vacations. As such, we will allow this flexibility and we will work with families planned absences.” All absences will need to be reported to the school principal.
The school supply list for the 2019-2020 School Year are available on the school website or have been mailed to the student’s home address. If any family is having a hardship with purchasing the school supplies, please contact your school principal for assistance.

Parents of Luna County, you gave us feedback that we needed more summer opportunities to close the gap. You also asked for more after school opportunities for students. You asked and we responded, K-5 Plus and extended school year initiatives will continue to allow for these opportunities.” said Dr. Arsenio Romero, Superintendent “We are excited to be the model program in the State of New Mexico and look forward to an amazing 2019-2020 School Year.”
