Fall 2020 Remote Learning Schedule

Attention, 7th through 12th grade students! Our remote learning schedule is available below. Please note that students will be meeting through Microsoft Teams instead of Zoom. Teachers will be contacting parents before classes begin August 4, 2020. We look forward to seeing you. 

Free and Reduced Lunch Application

Parents, please visit the Free and Reduced Lunch Application link found under the Parent Information tab to find the required application for free and reduced lunches. Print it off, complete it, and return it to the school by August 13, 2020 even if you think you won't qualify. Each application helps the school out with funding. Please keep in mind that we will charge the normal price for lunches sent out on the bus by the school unless you qualify for free or reduced lunches. If you require assistance with the process, please feel free to contact the school. Thank you.


Welcome to the virtual home of Animas Public Schools, home of the Panthers! We are a community of families with strong generational ties to our land and to our past. Located 37 miles southwest off Interstate-10, you won’t find sidewalks or traffic here, but you will find people, most with a little dust on their boots, who are proud of who they are and what they do. You will find a community committed to providing the best education available to its children.

Animas Public Schools serve New Mexico students in preschool through 12th grade who reside in Animas, Hachita, Playas, Rodeo, and Cotton City. We bus many of our students from up to 60 miles away. Because of these extreme distances, we operate on a four-day week, Monday - Thursday.
