Parents and staff,

On July 1, 2022, Farmington Municipal Schools made the following changes to our inclement weather procedures for the 2022-2023 school year:

  • In the event school buildings are closed due to snow or other inclement weather, schools will be canceled on those days. There will not be any remote learning.
  • There will be no 2-hour delays on Mondays. In the event of inclement weather, schools will be canceled on those days.
  • If there is a 2-hour delay on Tuesday through Friday, the preschool AM session is canceled, and the preschool PM session will still be held.
  • There can be 2-hour delays during the 2022-2023 school year only if buses cannot run at their regular times. Buses will pick students up 2 hours later than usual.
  • On days when inclement weather cancels school, all co-curricular activities, extra-curricular activities, and other district activities are canceled unless the Superintendent or their designee makes an exception.


Depending on when the decision is made, notifications will begin the night before or the day of, starting at 5:00 a.m. to our commuters from Durango and nearby towns, followed by calls to parents and staff between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m. You will find up-to-date information:

Notifications are also sent to the following media outlets:

Student Nutrition:

  • On school closure days, meals will not be served. 
  • On 2-hour delays, lunch meals will be served. 

*In the school year 2022-2023, FMS will not provide curbside meals or deliver them via bus. This change is due to Farmington Municipal Schools switching back to the USDA National School Lunch Program (NSLP) / School Breakfast Program (SBP) & Child & Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Current information about our Student Nutrition Department can be found here.

*Inclement Weather Procedures are different for FMS Plant Operation staff. Please check with your supervisor.

*FMS Staff, make sure your contact information is up-to-date on PowerSchool. If it's out-of-date, you can fill out the FMS Information Update Form and send it to: jdodson@fms.k12.nm.us.
