Current 8th graders interested in high school athletics should contact the head coach of the desired program to find out about summer clinics as well as tryout requirements and expectations. Contact info can be located on the individual high school websites. Reminder, a physical examination using the NMAA physical form dated on or after April 1, 2022 is required for student participation, including tryouts. It is recommended that students get physicals completed over the summer. NMAA packet link is located on the EMS athletics webpage.


A Note from the Health Office

  • Medication Pick-up:  Stop by the Health Office anytime between 8:15 and 3:00 during the month of May to pick up your child's medication.  Please note that only emergency meds can be sent home with students, i.e., EpiPens, inhalers, etc.  All as-needed prescription and over-the-counter meds must either be picked up by a parent or guardian, or they will be destroyed on the last day of school.  Please email Paula Kelley, Health Assistant, at to let her know how you'd like us to proceed with any meds or supplies brought into the Health Office.
  • Shot Clinic:  All incoming 7th graders have two additional immunization requirements:  Tdap and Meningococcal.  The Midtown Public Health Office will be hosting a shot clinic on Saturday, May 7th.  Please see the flyer below for more information.

A Note from the Counseling Center

Summer School Registration for soon-to-be 9th graders will take place at Eisenhower April 4th-May 31st. This year, incoming Freshmen can only take Physical Education (PE) during summer school. Summer School sites will include Del Norte HS, Manzano HS, Rio Grande HS, Valley HS, and e-Cademy. Full price tuition is $250 per semester (Freshmen must complete two semesters of PE to meet the 1.0 credit graduation requirement.), but students who have Free or Reduced Lunch applications on file with APS may be eligible for reduced tuition fees. All summer school fees must be paid through ParentVue. Please have interested students connect with their School Counselor to register.

Volunteer with APS

While encouraging family and community participation, we must consider the safety of every child in the district. State law requires a background check from volunteers before participating in any volunteer activity at any APS school.

  • APS background checks are valid for two years.
  • After completing and submitting the Volunteer Clearance Request, the background check may take 7 to 10 business days to process.
    Clearance decisions may take longer if any instances appear in the background check.
  • You must complete the Payment section in the Volunteer Clearance Request before you can submit your application and begin the background clearance process.

Contact or call (505) 830-6240 for more information


End of the Day Student Safety

A friendly reminder that afternoon duty teachers will make sure to remind students to exit fences safely by 3:15 pm. We want to ensure students are on their way home as we do not have duty staff on the campus after 3:15 pm. Students are welcome to wait in the pick-up locations or use the school phone to call a family member to pick them up. Students attending an afterschool event or club are welcome to report directly to that location. Please know that safety is our main concern.
