District Staff Begins Intensive Trainings to Implement New Management Software for the District

This spring, Archuleta School District's Administration office staff has begun the herculean task of learning, training and implementing a new and powerful Technology, Infinite Visions, that will be used to bridge information across the District and will improve and increase processes district-wide. Thank you, District office staff, for all of your efforts to ensure that our school district runs effectively and smoothly. Although you work tirelessly to serve all schools behind the scenes daily-you all are greatly appreciated daily.

PSES Chooses New Curriculum K-5

Pagosa Springs Elementary School recently reviewed and 'test drove' six different curriculums. As a staff, they reviewed the data and made a collaborative decision to use Open Court Curriculum for K-2 grades and Benchmark Curriculum 3-5 grades.

The curriculum materials are available in the District office for review and can also be reviewed online.

ASD Offers Rapid COVID-19 Tests for Staff and Students

Rapid testing is now available at all ASD schools. Staff & students (with parental consent) can now receive rapid testing. Tests will show results in 15 minutes and will be a great tool to help the District keep students and staff safe, healthy and in school. Thank you Nurse Morgan for all of your hard work to get these tests for our District.

2-Hour School Delay

Schools today are on a 2-hour delay due to varied poor visibility throughout the district. Busses will run 2 hours later than usual and students and staff will report 2 hours later than usual. High school is still remote.

Help us fight COVID-19 - TOGETHER

As Spring approaches, please help us do our part to maintain a healthy community and healthy schools as we continue to fight COVID together. While vaccines are being distributed to staff in our schools, there currently is not a vaccine for students. Reminders: Keep students home if they have any symptoms, wear a mask indoors, practice social distancing, avoid large gatherings, wash your hands often, bring a personal water bottle and do not share personal items. Thank you for helping to keep students and the community safe and healthy.

Archuleta School District Staff Receives First Dose of the COVID-19 Vaccine

HUGE thank you to Pagosa Springs Medical Center and ASD's own Nurse Morgan for your partnership with the school district to give our staff the opportunity to get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine--what an amazing job done by PSMC and Nurse Morgan to get everyone vaccinated with their first dose in one day. The District is beyond grateful for all you have done to keep our community and our schools healthy and safe. Thank you.
