April 16, 2021 – At the urging of the governor, schools around the state opened at the beginning of April for in-person learning – some for the first time this school year. However, the coronavirus is already forcing some schools to return to hybrid learning as staff and students contract the disease both in-school and out-of-school. The Line discusses the impact of COVID-19 on New Mexico’s attempt to return students and educators to school buildings, and talks about the options available to school districts as the scheduled academic year winds down.
