New Mexico teacher vacations one reason to close schools


On top of the exploding number of COVID-19 cases, school officials are citing another factor for closing down in-person learning: teacher vacations.

SANTA FE — On top of the exploding number of COVID-19 cases, school officials are citing another factor for closing down in-person learning: teacher vacations.

Worried in part that their staff are traveling out of state for the holidays and need to quarantine when they come back, school administrators across New Mexico have canceled some in-person learning, while others have and pushed remote learning further into next year than previously planned.

“We expect some of our staff, students, and families to travel during winter break, and they will need 14 days to quarantine when they return, so a Jan. 5 target date for a hybrid learning wasn’t realistic,” Albuquerque Public Schools board of education President David Peercy said.

The district, which has pushed in-person learning back further and further, will extend remote learning until at least Jan. 19.
