Floyd schools to hold Monday meeting amid threats from MLG’s NMPED over mask mandates

On Monday, the Floyd Municipal School District in Roosevelt County will convene for a special meeting following Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s New Mexico Public Education Department and its “bullying tactics” due to the Floyd schools passing a reopening resolution not mandating masks or social distancing.

Floyd School Board President Leon Nall said to KOB 4, “I don’t think the Department of Education understands what’s going on in rural America.” 

The reasonable approach by the school board includes, “If anyone feels safer with a mask, we have no objections to them wearing masks,” according to Nall. “If anyone has a fear of what we are doing, we will make the accommodations.”

KOB reported, “In Floyd, the average class size is about 12 students. The district said last year they saw many students move to nearby Texas districts or private schools. Their guidelines are meant to help attract students back.” 

The Floyd Municipal School Board will hold a meeting on Monday, August 2, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. in the high school computer lab, where the Board will discuss the threats from NMPED. More information on the meeting can be found here.

  1. My son, a school teacher, came up with a good idea. The board should make masks optional. If SF doesn’t like it, they can send the state police to inforace, that will make a lot of friends in town;).

  2. What is the procedure to recall an elected official? Governor Lujan Grisham needs to go! If she is not gone soon there will be a war amongst fellow New Mexicans! She needs to be reined in for what she is doing to the people of New Mexico!
