Animas Public Schools Online Class Meeting Schedule

Attention, 7th through 12th grade students! Our online class meeting schedule is available below. Please note that students can virtually attend classes by clicking on the Zoom tab in the upper toolbar of their Microsoft team for each class.

Distance Learning

Animas Panthers, we will be rolling out distance learning on Monday, April 6. To see how we will be doing this, check out this video.


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.
