This is for parents of students attending in person only. The Public Education Department is requiring that we have 1% of our in person student population and 10% of our students participating in athletics do a voluntary Covid 19 test thru Vault medical. The process is quick, easy and can even be done here at the JFK campus. Please see the letter from the PED as well as the attachment on this page. To volunteer to have your child screened, please call us at 721-3120. Thank you.
In accordance with the New Mexico Department of Health, the following types of face ware are strictly prohibited in schools:
• Masks that have exhalation valves or vents
• Neck gaiters (also known as a neck fleece)
• Face shields
Students attending starting next week, must be in approved mask at all times when at JFK Middle School. Although we are having a limited dress code, we ask that no masks be in red or royal/navy blue as well. If you have any questions, please contact us at 721-3100. Thank you.
All JFK Parents are encouraged to call us at 721-3113 or 721-3109 or 721-3101 so you can have access to Synergy, the GMCS student information system. With this access, you can see your child's grades, attendance, and so much more. Even if you're not tech savvy, we can help you navigate the system so that you can better stay on top of your child when in distance learning. You must call 721-3113 to ask for Synergy access and receive an access code. We look forward to your call! Thank you!
JFK Middle School has teachers available to help your child every Friday in all subjects. All students need to do is log in with their teacher to get the help and extra support they need.

On April 15th GMCS received notification that the State will not be eligible to take credit for Impact Aid in FY21 (current fiscal year). This determination is in response to GMCS’ request for hearing and subsequent filings regarding the State’s submittal in March of 2020. Among other significant issues, the State did not file its request timely to the US Department of Education per federal statute, and their preliminary approval has been revoked by USDOE.
GMCS Board and Administration will continue to work every day to provide necessary resources to assure a quality education for all students.
The State or any adversely impacted LEAs have 60 days to request a hearing related to this ruling.
