Governor Lujan-Grisham and the NM PED announced that New Mexico schools can reopen K-12 beginning February 8, 2020. We are excited that we can continue HYBRID LEARNING MODEL for Hondo students, and to share what this step in reopening New Mexico schools means for HVPS.

  • All grades will remain in the Hybrid Learning Model.  HVPS is still only allowed 50% of our students on campus each day.
  • All persons on the HVPS must continue to practice COVID Safe practices:
    • Wear a mask correctly at all times
    • Social Distance (6 feet apart)
    • Wash/sanitize hands often
  • Wash/sanitize hands often
  • HVPS must follow the CDC and NM PED health and safety guidelines for public school buildings:
    • The HVAC system filters have been upgraded to MERV 8 (or above).
    • In addition, each classroom now has an air filtration system to ensure the air in each room is exchanged multiple times each hour.
    • The classrooms, common areas, and offices are sanitized each day.
  • While COVID-19 immunization for HVPS employees is not mandatory, many of our faculty and staff have opted to get the immunization.  Currently 42% of our staff has had at least the 1st immunization shot and many others are on the NMDOH waiting list.
  • In the near future we will find out more about sports and extra-curricular activities, and we will convey that information to you as soon as we can.
  • Please continue to keep students at home if anyone in your household has tested positive for COVID-19.

I want to thank the Hondo Valley community for your steadfast support and cooperation from the beginning of the pandemic in March and throughout the 20-21 school year.
