I’ve been asked to clarify the PAPA policy on school cancellation due to inclement weather.
If APS is cancelled or delayed, PAPA will not have school.
If Manzano and the east mountain schools are cancelled, but not the rest of the APS district, PAPA will have school. However, it is up to parent discretion for students living in the east mountains or near Manzano. The absence will be excused.
If the district where a child lives has a delay or cancellation (ie. Rio Rancho), but APS is in session, PAPA will have school. Parent discretion is used to determine if the child can safely attend school that day. The absence will be excused.
As in any excused absence, it is the responsibility of the student to make up the work missed.
