Hello Tiger Community,
Earlier today we had an unruly student on campus at Aztec High School resulting in two staff members being injured.
To keep students and staff safe we had them hold in rooms as emergency responders assisted with the situation.
No students were injured and operations at AHS resumed after the incident occured.
We are continuing to investigate the situation.
Don't forget to vote November 7th on the Re-Authorization of the Mill Levy (Also known as the Aztec Public School Capital Improvement Tax).
Good morning Tiger Community,
We wanted to send a reminder that today students will be dismissed early ahead of parent teacher conferences. Mosaic will release at 12:00, Elementary schools will release at 12:10, KMS will release at 12:15, VNHS will release at 12:25, and AHS will release at 12:30.
We look forward to seeing you at Parent Teacher Conferences.

Good Afternoon, Tiger Community.
After continuous monitoring of the various weather models, we believe that we will be able to successfully and safely host tonight’s celebration at Fred Cook Stadium. As a reminder, should there be cloud-to-ground lightning strikes within ten (10) miles of the stadium at any time from 6PM on, all graduates will seek shelter in the C.V. Koogler Middle School cafeteria. Guests of the graduates in attendance must exit the stadium and wait in their respective vehicles. Once there has been a period of at least thirty (30) minutes with no lightning within ten (10) miles of the stadium, guests will be permitted back into the stadium and the ceremony will continue.
Additionally, the ceremony will also be live-streamed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phTUJ9ymPzw
We can’t wait to see you tonight!
Aztec Municipal School District
Dear Tiger Community,
Despite inconsistent weather models, we have made the difficult decision to continue as previously planned with tonight’s Aztec High School graduation ceremony, scheduled for 7PM at Fred Cook Stadium.
Gates to the parking lot will open at 4:00PM and the gates to the stadium will open at 6:00PM. With Fred Cook Stadium being primarily a metal structure, it has little to no shelter available for large crowds in the event of inclement weather such as lightning. As a result, should there be cloud-to-ground lightning strikes within ten (10) miles of the stadium at any time from 6PM on, all graduates will seek shelter in the C.V. Koogler Middle School cafeteria. Guests of the graduates in attendance must exit the stadium and wait in their respective vehicles. Once there has been a period of at least thirty (30) minutes with no lightning within ten (10) miles of the stadium, guests will be permitted back into the stadium and the ceremony will continue.
While we know that there is always a chance that thunderstorms develop, most of the weather models indicate that from 5:00PM onward that chance is low until after 9:00PM, according to the National Weather Service. It is our hope that this prediction is accurate. We know that there is no correct decision; however, we believe it is best to continue with the ceremony at Fred Cook in order to not limit the attendance of our graduates’ guests for this deserved ceremony. WE WILL CONTINUE TO ASSESS THE LIKELIHOOD OF LIGHTNING AND WILL MAKE ONE LAST AND FINAL DETERMINATION TODAY, MAY 19, 2023 AT 2:00PM. WE WILL EITHER CONFIRM THE DECISION OF CONTINUING WITH THE CEREMONY AT FRED COOK STADIUM OR MOVE THE CEREMONY TO LILLYWHITE GYMNASIUM AT THAT TIME.
As always, we appreciate your understanding and grace and cannot wait to celebrate our 2023 AHS graduates with you this evening!

Hello Tiger Community,
Please join us in extending congratulations to the AMSD Choir students!
Mr. Cranfill notified us that all three of our choirs earned the highest possible rating of "SUPERIOR" at the Music Performance Assessment (MPA) competition.
In total, Aztec had 58 singers there. That's 150% of what we had last year.
Perhaps most importantly, our students were respectful and well-behaved throughout the event.
Way to go, Aztec Choirs!
Finally, we want to extend a special thanks to Pam Prater (email@example.com
) for providing the photos of this event to us.
The Aztec High School Parent Advisory meeting that was scheduled for this afternoon will be postponed. When this meeting is rescheduled we will send an update out.
We have an emergency situation with an individual at Aztec High School. Emergency response is on their way. There is no danger to staff or students. We appreciate your understanding of this sensitive medical emergency.
Earlier this morning, an individual at AHS had a medical episode that required emergency attention. As a result, the campus initiated a shelter in place protocol in order to assist the medical experts in providing aid to the person. The student has been safely transported and the shelter in place has been lifted. We appreciate your understanding and thank all of our team members and partners for their quick response to this medical episode.
