UPDATED 7/1/2020

LES/LMS Registration is now open.

Registration packets are available online (http://lagunamidschool.ss3.sharpschool.com/registration) or can be picked up at either school.
School sites are open Monday - Friday from 8:00 am - 2:00 pm.

Your child must be registered with LES/LMS in order to receive educational services.

Dear LES/LMS Parents:

Back to School time is quickly approaching.  There are still many unknowns about the spread and mitigation of the coronavirus. LDoE is hard at work planning for the beginning of the new school year.  What school will look like in the Fall and in the weeks and months that follow is currently under development.  The plan for School Re-Opening will be posted on our website and communicated to parents on July 20, 2020.  Just know that student and staff safety is our top priority, along with providing a quality educational experience.

Models for Teaching and Learning 

LES/LMS is considering opening schools with one of these models for instruction:

  1. Distance (At-Home) Learning for all students
  2. On Site/At Home Rotations – bringing in ½ the student body 2 days a week and then the other ½ of the student body on 2 days a week.  On days when students are not in school, they would be provided with at-home learning opportunities (total of 3 days/week).

We don’t know yet which model we will use to start the school year but our school staffs are already planning and preparing so that we will be ready to deliver instruction to your child(ren) in a safe and engaging way.

School Re-Open Plan

LDoE staff regularly discusses how to reopen school in a safe and effective way.  We have developed plans to address the items listed below.  The list below is not everything we have discussed but rather to show you the scope of things we are considering.

  • Transportation
  • Meals
  • Safety, Hygiene & Sanitation
  • Logistics of Social Distancing and Protective Equipment
  • Emotional Wellbeing
  • Essential Learning


Communication is an important part of our School Re-opening plan. Please make sure that LES/LMS has your most recent contact information so that we can keep you informed. As information becomes available, we will communicate this information via SchoolMessenger, our website (www.lagunaed.net), the marquee, and Facebook.  Parents are also encouraged to call the school (LMS:  552-9091 or LES:  552-9200) with any questions.

Our plan is constantly evolving and will be revised as situations change.  We are following the guidelines of the Pueblo, as well as the guidelines of the CDC and the BIE, and we are always looking at the best ways to address the needs of students, staff, and our community.

Current Information:

  • Registration is open.  Students must be registered to receive educational services.
  • The registration packets for LES/LMS are the same.  However, each child must have a completed packet.
  • Registration packets can be accessed online (http://lagunamidschool.ss3.sharpschool.com/registration) or picked up at the school.
  • School Re-Open information will be published on July 20.  This information will provide specifics on how and when we will be reopening to students and delivering instruction.

Please contact the school (505) 552-9200 if you have any questions or concerns.  As always, our parents are our partners in education.  We look forward to seeing you in the Fall.

LDOE Communication Plan

Many of you have posed questions that merit a response from LDOE. In our effort to respond to these questions, we have established a timeline as to when the responses will be available. Many of our responses are contingent upon decisions made by our funding agencies. We will continue to do our best to respond to the questions.

All of the LDOE departments (DEC, LES, LMS, and PFS) are supported by federal program dollars. Each of these federal programs have their own regulations that we must adhere to as part of our service delivery. These federal funders also have a say on how we administer our programs during this time of the Corona Virus Pandemic. We feel confident that we can begin to prepare information for release to the public.

If you are experiencing difficulties with accessing the information on the LDOE website, please contact our IT Department at: tech@lagunaed.net or 505-552-3080.

Below you will find a timeline at which information will become accessible on our website and Facebook page. The School Messenger system will also send an alert when the information is available.
