Good Morning La Merced Families: Just a couple of reminders: (1) Please make sure that in the morning drop off you are checking your rear-view mirror after your kids get out of the car and you pull out to leave the school. It is a very tight fit and we are trying our best to move the line as quickly as possible but there are many who are not watching their areas around them. To keep everyone safe, we need your help with this. (2) I have noticed an increase in the number of parents who are getting out of their cars after school to get their child. THIS IS NOT ALLOWED. WE WILL NOT BE DISMISSING STUDENTS TO YOU UNLESS YOU GO THROUGH THE PARENT PICK UP LINE. (3) We have seen an increase in parents coming into the office for early release because they do not want to wait in the parent pick up line after school. We will NO LONGER release ANY students for early release after 3:00 pm. Thank you for your help with these issues. From: Mrs. Montoya

One form WE MUST have on file is the Technology Form, especially since we are conducting classes remotely. Please take a couple minutes to complete this form. It is very short and should take less than 2-minutes to complete, IF YOU ARE NOT SURE WHETHER OR NOT YOU ALREADY COMPLETED THE FORM, PLEASE GO AHEAD AND COMPLETE THIS FORM AGAIN. You DO need to complete a different one for EACH student you have at La Merced. Thank you for your assistance!

Good Afternoon La Merced Families: I am including the link to our La Merced Remote Learning Schedule. As you can see, there is a bit more information I need to include such as teacher office hours. I will send out a completed schedule at a later date (hopefully before end of day tomorrow). However, THIS schedule includes the times in which your student will need to access their “Live” instruction. Again, “Live” instruction, which I highlighted in yellow, is when students should be on a TEAM meeting with their teacher. Teachers will also have set “office hours” in which any parent can contact their child’s teacher for help. I am also going to ask that parents respect that teachers work day ends at 3:40 pm. I am asking parents if you have issues after the teacher’s workday that you either contact them the next day during their office hours OR email them and they will respond during their office hours. This has taken a toll on all of us. Just because we are teaching remote does not mean we are on call 24/7. Thank you for respecting that. Also, the district has set up a HELP desk for technology issues. The number to call if you are having issues is (505)966-2070. Here is the Remote Learning Schedule. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding as we move ahead with FULL REMOTE LEARNING! From: Mrs. Montoya https://www.beleneagles.org/o/lme/browse/179788

Good Afternoon La Merced Families! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break! As mentioned before, we will be moving to full remote instruction for the entire school. We will begin our “Live” instruction tomorrow, November 30th. Students are expected to log into their Schoology accounts as well as participate in “Live” instruction. I know there are some instances where it is not possible for students to join the “live” instruction so for those cases teachers will be recording and posting ALL “live” lessons to their Schoology pages for students to access later. Remember, attendance will be taken based on WORK COMPLETION for the week. I am going to be working with the schools Leadership team to create more specific criteria on attendance which will be sent out later. I am including a link below which provides step-by-step instructions on how your student can access their Schoology page as well as access TEAM meetings that begin tomorrow. I know there are going to be problems as we begin to move to full remote, but we will work on fixing those problems as quickly as we can. You can help by making sure your student can log into Schoology and TEAMS today to eliminate those types of issues. I will be sending out the La Merced Remote Schedule by grade level next.

Good Afternoon La Merced Families! As you may already know, starting Monday, November 30th, the school board voted that ALL students will be participating in Remote learning. This means we will no longer be offering the hybrid learning model to any student until further notice. It is important to us that we make this transition as smoothly as possible for our students. Because of the class sizes for our remote teacher, some students will be reassigned to another teacher within the grade level. We are in the process of reorganizing our class rosters and your student’s teacher will be in contact with you. We will also be sending out a schedule that each grade level will be following as we move forward with remote learning. Also, we are out of devices and are currently waiting for our next order to arrive for those of you who have let us know you still need a device. Unfortunately, these devices are on back order and are taking a lot longer to come in. We will be contacting you when they arrive. If you need internet services, the district has sent out a survey for you to respond to. It is important that you complete that survey, so the district knows what your needs are. I am including the link to this survey for those of you who have not completed it yet. The link to the survey can also be found at beleneagles.org. As we move forward, please make sure your student is logging into their Schoology account for further information from their teacher. During the remote learning, students will be expected to participate in “live lessons” as attendance will be taken based on participation and work completion. Thank you for your patience as we get all of this figured out. Sincerely, Mrs. Montoya https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=tpWbNBVyTk2gQASUxmP7NNaU9P-gu5RFp7zv0GjqZeRUREdNV0xHUEVUSlBKSTdKSzBRQjFFWEJFSS4u

As we prepare for the upcoming school year there are many uncertainties. Belen Consolidated Schools is working on preparing for students to re-enter school in the fall. The Public Education Department is working with a task force to provide guidance. The link to access the 2020-2021 Student Calendar that was approved by the School Board is: https://go.aws/37m3V2p. We are anticipating that we will start school as scheduled on August 18th. We are hopeful that it will be in-person with all our students but are preparing for variations that may need to take place do to COVID-19 CDC guidelines. We recognize that students are our foundation and will make decisions that positively impact their learning and well-being.
