DORA, N.M. – An entire New Mexico School District shut down Thursday and Friday due to student and staff illnesses.
Dora Consolidated Schools sent a letter home to parents on Wednesday. It says illnesses are causing a shortage of staff and substitutes and they can’t adequately cover all classrooms.
Interim Superintendent Brandon Hays says his staff will be performing a thorough sanitization of the schools today in hopes of minimizing the spread of germs. He’s asking parents to keep kids home if they have vomited during the night or morning before school and until they are fever free for 24 hours without the help of medication.
The schools will reopen on Monday, Jan. 29. Read the superintendent’s letter here.
