Good afternoon, BPS Families - As we move deeper into the summer months, Bernalillo Public Schools is hard at work in getting ready for the upcoming school year. We have a few major projects that will be taking place in the next two months to improve the physical environment of our schools. In addition, as I have mentioned before, the district has been working with many stakeholders on the development of a strategic plan that will provide a framework on how we will approach the next three to five years. As part of this strategic plan, we have been in the midst of a restructuring of the leadership of the district, including all of our school sites. The restructuring is almost complete, and we are excited to begin the hard but exciting work ahead. In an effort to keep you informed about the strategic plan and the development of leadership, BPS will be hosting a virtual Town Hall on Wednesday, June 8 at 6PM. This will be the first of many meetings to provide information and updates to the community as we finalize the strategic plan, but then moving forward, as we report out to you about our progress. It is important that we set clear goals, with strategic levers that have understandable metrics. It is even more important that we keep you, our community, apprised of where we stand with those goals. Below, please find the link to the meeting. This account allows for 1,000 participants, and we will open the meeting by 5:50PM that day, so we can get everybody in. Matt Montaño is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Good morning, BPS Families and Team- Yesterday's events in Uvalde, Texas have again brought a sober reminder to safety and security in public spaces. On behalf of Bernalillo Public Schools Board of Education, we extend our deepest sympathies to the families and staff of Uvalde CISD. For the rest of the week, BPS has heightened our security on each campus, with Bernalillo Police Department and Sandoval County Sherriff's Department providing additional presence at each of our campuses in the district. Please note that this heightened security is not due to any existing threat, but as an additional security response in the wake of yesterday's incident. BPS is committed to protecting our children and staff on our campuses, and we will be investing time and resources in the next few weeks and months to enhance our systems of security, police presence, and training for staff, so that entering next school year, we are even better prepared for a safe and healthy school environment. Thank you for allowing Bernalillo Public Schools to serve your families! Sincerely, Matt
