End of Year Balances

The end of the school year is fast approaching! Students cannot carry balances from one year to the next so please log in to your parent portal as soon as possible to view fees and begin paying down the balance so that your child's student account will be in good standing by the end of the year. 


Please reach out right away if you have questions or need help logging in to your parent portal. Contact Ms. Claudia,

Panorama Health and Wellness Survey

NMPED is collecting another Health and Wellness survey. We are asking that all of our students participate in the surveys, as their responses will provide invaluable insights into their experiences and how we can improve and adapt our district to their needs. If a student doesn't feel like they have enough information to answer a question, they will be able to skip the item altogether. The responses to these surveys will be completely confidential. We are partnering with a third-party vendor to support us in administering these surveys.

If you have any questions about the SEL survey, please don't hesitate to contact us at 505-796-0149. 

This survey is a requirement of NMPED, but parents can opt their student out of the survey. If you choose to opt your student out, please fill this Google Form out by May 1, 2024.
