• School Closure or Delay

    There are many ways of finding out if the schools are on a delay or are closed due to weather. Most messages are on the  automated phone with information, or you can call (505)721-2233 if you have a phone that is not in the automated system. The Gallup schools web site is another resource. The local TV stations in Albuquerque also have the schools that are on delay or closed scrolling during their morning news programs and you can find the information on their websites, as well.

  • Weather!

    Winter is here and the morning temperatures have been below freezing. Please make sure your child is dressed warmly for the mornings. We also like to have students go out to recess if the temps are above 36 degrees and the wind isn’t crazy, so appropriate dress is necessary. We would like to have each student here at school every day. They get behind on
    class work due to sickness.

School Mission Statement


 "Creating a Foundation for Lifelong Learning to become Successful Citizens"

Ms. Cindy Arsenault, CES Principal

Welcome back to school! As we enter the second half of the school year, I want to take the opportunity to remind families of a few things. First and foremost, it is very important that your child is here every day on time. School begins at 7:50 and ends at 3:05. It is critical that your child be here to take advantage of their learning so that they are ready to head to the next grade in the fall. Check outs do cut into learning so be aware of how many times you take your child early. 

You may have noticed that the level of work your child is doing has increased. As we begin the push to the next grade, teachers are pushing towards mastery of grade level topics. You can support that learning by reading with your child and creating opportunities for solving math problems. Have you child keep track of how much you spend at the grocery store. For older students, have them compare prices to find the best deal for your family.

Make every day a learning day! Have a wonderful new year! If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to call 505.786.5323.
