This message is from SPFS and shared with our community by Principal Pietrocci

Santa Fe Public Schools Reopen Tuesday, April 6th

Welcome Back! We are so happy for students to return to in-person learning! For those students returning in-person, we are thrilled and can’t wait to see you! For those remaining in remote learning, we will continue to provide rigorous remote instruction and opportunities to connect with the classroom community.

Below are some recommendations and guidelines to support families as we return to in-person learning.


Before coming to school each day:

  • Check in with your child each morning for signs of illness. If your child has a temperature of 100.0 degrees or higher, they should not go to school.

  • Keep your child home if they have any of the following symptoms: chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.

  • If your child has had close contact to someone that has tested positive within the past 14 days, they should not go to school. Follow guidance on what to do when someone has known exposure.

Current Contact Information:

  • Make sure your information is current at school, including emergency contacts and individuals authorized to pick up your child(ren) from school. If that list includes anyone who is at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19, consider identifying an alternate person.

Chronic Medical Conditions:

  • Make sure the school nursing staff have current orders for medications/medical procedures needed at school.

  • Bring medications needed directly to nursing staff. Do not send it in your child(ren)’s backpack.

  • Make sure your child(ren) is up-to-date on school immunizations.

Plan for transportation:

  • If you wish your child to use the school bus transportation system the student’s address must be updated in PowerSchool

  • You may check your student’s eligibility and his/her designated bus stop using the Bus Route Search Tool at: Transportation Homepage

  • Charter School students may utilize the hub services, which can be viewed in the same web link by clicking on Charter School Bus Routes.

  • If your child rides a bus, plan for your child to wear a mask on the bus and talk to your child about the importance
