****District Announcements*


    Based upon the Governor’s announcement today, July 23, EMSD will begin with a Distance Learning Program instead of the hybrid model previously recommended. We are all very disappointed to not begin with our students here on campus! 

    We will begin our Distance Learning Program on Monday, August 17th. More information to come!  

    We can do this, Bears!


    The district's Parent Reentry Handbook has been mailed. Please watch for it. You will find details about the district's IMPROVED Distance Learning Model on page 31.

    For a preview of the handbook, please click the link below.

  • Back to School Update!

    Based upon PED guidelines for social distancing, current student enrollment, and square footage of each classroom, the Estancia Municipal School Board of Education adopted a hybrid learning model for grades K-12 for the beginning of the 2020 - 2021 school year. Everyone has worked VERY HARD to meet the PED guidelines in such a way that elementary students could come every day. Unfortunately, with the variation in the sizes of classrooms, this was not possible for every grade level in light of the current social distancing requirement.

    The hybrid schedule has students assigned to an A Day or B Day. They will come to school ever-other-day for instruction, and have homework for the day inbetween. Families will be kept together for A or B Day assignment. Fridays will be a non-school day for most students, with some students coming in for intervention, special education services, or credit recovery. Pre-K will come daily Monday - Thursday. 

    You will be receiving a printed Re-entry Handbook in the coming week via your mail, and the Handbook will be posted online providing you with all the details you need.

    Unless things change with directions from the PED or Governor, school will begin as previously scheduled on August 17th. Please click on "District Calendar" for the 20-21 school calendar. An A/B calendar will be provided with the Re-entry Handbook. 

    As a note, face shields will be provided to every student whose parents prefer that over the recommended mask. As noted by the parent of a 4th and 6th grader, "We liked the face shields that the kids tried on today.  I think they will be tolerated much better than a mask."

    Right now, you may not wish your child to return to school. If that is the case, 


    The district is offering a K-12 Online Learning Academy. 

    Using the K - 12 Edgenuity Online Learning system, students will complete their grade level curriculum from home.

    This virtual program is standards aligned, includes teacher support by an Estancia Schools teacher, and will provide for a smooth re-entry into our school setting at semester! You may register by completing the online survey.

    We are devastated to be losing two phenomenal teachers, a paraprofessional, and an activity bus driver this year.

    Thank you for your dedication to the students of our district and congratulations on your retirement!

    You will all be missed dearly!

  •  The Estancia FFA participated in the 1st New Mexico FFA Virtual Convention from June 1st to June 10th, 2020. The State FFA Convention brings together delegates from each NM FFA Chapter to decide on important issues for the NM FFA including election of new officers and competitions in Leadership Development Events and several different areas of competition. Each chapter was represented by four delegates. The delegates for Estancia FFA were Isaac Ayers, Jenna Fastnacht, Jayde Perea and Sophia Sedillo.

    Several Estancia FFA members were involved in election of new officers and LDE events.  After going through a vigorous state FFA nominating committee and a vote of NM FFA District  III delegates, Jonathan Aday was elected as the 2020-21 NM District III President/State Vice-President. He will serve the upcoming year as a NM State FFA Officer. Sophia Sedillo was selected as a proficiency award winner in the area of Agriculture Communications. Sophia’s project was an extemporaneous speaking project along with hosting the Estancia FFA Radio show weekly on KXNM 88.7. She also received a plaque and a check for $250 from the NM State FFA Foundation.

    Payton Otis and Isaac Ayers competed in State LDE Events for the Estancia FFA Chapter. Payton was one of 22 finalists competing in the NM State FFA Greenhand Creed Contest. Payton did an excellent job representing our chapter and placed 3rd in the contest. Isaac Ayers also competed in the State FFA Extemporaneous Speech Contest and represented District III well. The Estancia FFA would like to recognize the efforts of our participants in the State FFA Convention and congratulate each of them.

    We would also like to recognize our outstanding seniors who recently graduated. They are Isaac Ayers, Andrew Lujan, Garrett Noblitt, Alliyah Padilla, Luke Pope, Hezekiah Ortiz, and Trinity Sedillo. Congratulations to each of them for there participation and success in the Estancia FFA over the past six years. We will miss you and your leadership and guidance.
