  • From technology:

    As we prepare for return to school on August 6, 2021, we want to ensure that all Santa Fe Public Schools (SFPS) students have a device they can take to school as well as use at home.  Each student will be issued one device along with a charger and a case.

    Students in PreK & Kindergarten will be issued iPads.  Students in Grades 1 through 12 will be issued Chromebooks.  If students were previously issued an appropriate device for the grade they will be in on August 6, 2021, there is no need for them to be issued another device.  For those who are new to SFPS or need to swap out their previously issued device, a parent or legal guardian must provide their Photo ID along with the Student’ SFPS ID Number when they arrive at the Technology Department for device pickup or swap.


    --NEW Students to SFPS: Please go to the Technology Department to pick up your new iPad or Chromebook if you have completed your registration.  We will not be able to issue a device without the completed registration


    --Returning Students in Grade 1 & 2: All students in Grades 1 & 2 must exchange their iPad for a Chromebook. Please bring back your iPad & charger to exchange it for a Chromebook.


    --Returning Students who already have a device: Please turn on your device and check that it is working. If there are any issues please contact the Technology Student Help Desk at studenthelpdesk@sfps.k12.nm.us or call 505-467-4357.


    How to get to the Technology Department:

    The Tech Drive-Thru hours are Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM. Our address is 2516 Cerrillos Road; the street to the Technology Department is next to the skate park on Camino Carlos Rey. Please remember to bring your child's student ID Number.

Peachjar Flyer Distribution

Our district wants families to know about valuable programs and resources in the community. To facilitate delivery of this information, approved community organizations can send their flyers home to families digitally through Peachjar.

To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.

● Visit www.peachjar.com
● Register as a Program Provider (account type)
● Upload your flyer for approval

Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the district office for approval. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to parents and posted on each school’s web flyerboard for your selected duration of time. Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.
