FMS families and staff, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham lifted the state’s mask mandate on February 17, 2022. Farmington Municipal Schools is making mask-wearing an option for students, staff, and community, effective immediately. This change also applies to after-school events and sports activities. All other COVID-safe practices or other requirements regarding testing or quarantining remain in effect. Individuals can choose whether or not to wear a mask at school or school events, based on local guidelines as well as personal preferences or other health factors. FMS would like to ask our community to remain respectful of students' and staff's choices with regards to wearing a mask.
