Hello NAS Families,
This week we will be in a blended program as we wait for this outbreak to pass. If you are uncomfortable coming in person you may work on classes from home. We do encourage students to come in for extra support or if you need technology. Attendance will be taken, make sure you are working in each class or you will be marked absent.
Teachers are available in Google Meets for help or questions. We will return to regular classes Monday, February 26th. For more information, please go to

Hey, NASNM Families, it is COLD out there this morning! Due to the temperatures below 20 degrees (9degrees with wind chill), blowing snow and icy roads, we will be closed today. Please stay warm on this icy day! Classes will resume as usual tomorrow morning, but the whole week is cold-dress warmly and if you have to go out and about, drive carefully!
The time is coming for the 2023 annual NAS-NM Toy Drive! Please see the flyers for more information!
To learn about student experiences, we ask that all students take a quick online survey, to provide insights into their experiences and how we can improve and adapt our school to their needs.
Access surveys by going to: surveys.panoramaed.com/newmexico/family and choosing NASNM from the menu.
Don't forget! Scholar's Night this Wednesday! Beginning at 6 pm, join us to celebrate our students!

We also recognize those students who make it their job to attend all of their classes with our Quarter 2 Perfect Attendance recognition. The students are nominated by the Faculty and Staff here at NAS and are presented in front of their peers, as well as the NAS-NM Governing Council. The Q2 Scholars Night will start at 6 pm.
