PORTALES, N.M. (KRQE) – The Portales Municipal Schools Board of Education voted against the proposed four-day week calendar for the 2021-2022 school year. In a letter to parents last week, the superintendent said the schedule would allow for a quick transition to a hybrid model if COVID-19 worsens. Under the proposed plan, kids would have attended Tuesday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4:10 p.m.
