Letter To The Editor: School Tours Begin Friday

Former LAPS School Board Member

With apologies to Dr. Seuss “Oh, the schools you’ll see!”

Thanks to the voters of Los Alamos and their approval of recent Los Alamos Public Schools bond elections we have three “new” schools for you to visit! The bond approvals made the funds available from property taxes and the schools partnered with the State of New Mexico for matching funds. Combined with excellent construction oversight this resulted in a maximum “bang for the buck” whereas some existing facilities were maintained and some completely new facilities were constructed.

You are invited to tour the schools, “new” and “work to be done”. The High School and Topper Freshman Academy tour is scheduled for 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3. The Middle School tours are 3:15-4:15 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30 and 9:30-10:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1. The Aspen Elementary School tour is 4:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3. The Barranca Elementary School tour is 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11. The Chamisa Elementary School tours are 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6 and  5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13. The Mountain Elementary School tour is 3:45-4:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3. The Piñon Elementary School tour is 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5.

Again, a big “Thank You” to the citizens of Los Alamos!
