Welcome Back from Our Administration

Welcome to Zia 2015-2016 school year!  We are excited to have your student be a part of our Thunderbird experience.  Whether your child is a new incoming 6th grader or a returning 7th or 8th grader,  we hope they are as excited as we are for a new school year.  Please know we are here to support your son or daughter in being successful so they are prepared when it’s time to move onto high school.  If you have questions, we encourage you to contact the school to speak to your child’s teacher, counselor, or administration.   We know it’s going to be a great year!

Go Thunderbirds!

Information from http://lcps.k12.nm.us/2015/11/09/high-school-transfer-period-now-open/ about school transfers:
There is no guarantee that transfers will be accepted.  There are many factors that must be considered, such as the school’s enrollment and available teachers.  Parents and students are encouraged to read the district’s transfer regulation.

Students in elementary and middle schools who want to transfer to another school next school year, beginning in August 2016, will submit request transfer forms to their school principals during the spring transfer window which opens February 1, 2016.

High school students wishing to transfer for the Fall 2016 semester should submit their request to the Office of Instruction during the transfer window, February 1-March 1, 2016.  Students who wish to participate in athletics should check with their school athletics directors with questions about eligibility.
