Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year!

This school year promises to be a year full of excitement, new friends, and incredible learning at Adams. We cannot wait to see all of our new and returning students on the first day of school, Tuesday, September 4th.


Instructions about how to register for our parent portal will be mailed to our students the first week of August. The parent portal is also accessible through the link on the right hand side of this webpage. Once registered for our portal, parents will receive email updates about Adams Elementary throughout the year. On Thursday, August 30th, parents will be able to login to the parent portal to view their child's class placement. 


Students are not required to bring any supplies on the first day of school. We will provide students with all of the instructional materials they need to have a successful academic year. 




The safety of our children is our foremost concern. In order to promote the most secure school environment for all of our students, Adams School will strictly adhere to the N-MUSD guidelines for school/classroom volunteers. All volunteers must have a TB test, a Megan’s Law check- completed by Human Resources, and register online at www.nmusd.us/volunteers prior to participating in your child’s classroom. This policy is enforced for the safety of our students. Because it is hard to know all of our parents and volunteers, please understand if staff members ask you to identify yourself. They have been instructed to do so. All access to the school grounds must be made through the office.


Antes que nada la seguridad de nuestros niños es nuestra mayor preocupación. Para ofrecerles a todos los estudiantes un ambiente seguro, la escuela primaria Adams seguirá estrictamente las indicaciones de N-MUSD en lo que concierne los voluntarios dentro de clase/plantel escolar. Todos los voluntarios deben someterse a una prueba de Tuberculosis, cumplir con la inspección de Megan’s Law la cual se hace por medio del Departamento de Recursos Humanos, y registrarse en línea en www.nmusd.us/volunteers antes de participar en el salón de clase de su niño.  Esta póliza se cumplirá por la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes. Dado que es difícil que el personal escolar conozca a todos los padres y voluntarios, por favor sean comprensivos si un empleado les solicita que se identifiquen. Ellos recibieron instrucciones de hacerlo. Todo tipo de acceso al plantel escolar se debe de hacer por medio de la oficina.



For health reasons, food allergies, and to maintain a focus on academics in the classroom, no food items are to be brought into school to celebrate birthdays.  Students' birthdays are recognized each morning at Flag Deck.


Por razones de salud, alergias alimenticias, y para mantener el enfoque academico en el salon de clase, no se permitiran productos alimenticios en el plantel escolar para celebrar los cumpleaños.  Se reconoce y felicitamos aquellos estudiantes que son cumpleañeros cada mañana durante la asamblea de la bandera.


Unexcused Absences

NMUSD has updated the procedure for documenting unexcused absences. After 3 days, unexcused absences will be converted to “cuts” in our student information system. Students who have 10 cuts will be referred to our Student Attendance Review Board (SARB). Unless your child is ill or out for an excused family emergency, your child should be in class every day


Ausencias no justificadas

NMUSD actualizó el procedimiento de documentar las ausencias sin justificación. Después de 3 días , ausencias sin justificación se convertirán en día perdido (cut como se conoce en Inglés) en nuestro sistema de información. Aquellos alumnos que acumulen 10 ausencias recibirán una referencia a la Mesa Ejecutiva de Revisión de Asistencia Estudiantil (Conocida como SARB por sus siglas en Inglés). Al menos que su niño esté enfermo o fuera de la escuela por una emergencia familiar, su niño debe  estar en la escuela.

ADAMS ELEMENTARY- A Safe Place to Learn

Student safety is the highest priority for Adams Elementary School. Aside from keeping students safe in a clean, organized, and secure environment, Adams is one of two pilot schools in N-MUSD to begin the OLWEUS Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP). OBPP is a school wide approach to preventing and responding to bullying. Through weekly classroom lessons in all grades, kindergarten through sixth, students learn how to prevent bullying first and respond if they witness bullying behavior. OBPP is research-based and addresses both direct and indirect forms of bullying.

Adams has adopted the following Anti-Bullying Rules:

  1. We will not bully others.
  2. We will try to help students who are bullied.
  3. We will try to include students who are left out.
  4. If we know somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home.
