2020 DEC Transitioning Students

LDOE Communication Plan

Many of you have posed questions that merit a response from LDOE. In our effort to respond to these questions, we have established a timeline as to when the responses will be available. Many of our responses are contingent upon decisions made by our funding agencies. We will continue to do our best to respond to the questions.

All of the LDOE departments (DEC, LES, LMS, and PFS) are supported by federal program dollars. Each of these federal programs have their own regulations that we must adhere to as part of our service delivery. These federal funders also have a say on how we administer our programs during this time of the Corona Virus Pandemic. We feel confident that we can begin to prepare information for release to the public.

If you are experiencing difficulties with accessing the information on the LDOE website, please contact our IT Department at: tech@lagunaed.net or 505-552-3080.

Below you will find a timeline at which information will become accessible on our website and Facebook page. The School Messenger system will also send an alert when the information is available.

Message from the Director of DEC:

Dear Families,


I would like to extend prayers and blessings from my family to yours. That you may all stay safe and healthy. During this time of social distancing, may we grow closer to our loved ones by sharing all the wonderful things we don't normally get to do due to our hectic work schedules. May we embrace what we most treasure here on earth, our families. May we think of others in greater need than us and model compassion. May our children learn by example and what it means to be strong, to pray for one another  and show kindness towards others. May we treasure every moment with our children as we guide them through these difficult times. May we all come out of this healthy and strong! 


I'm thankful to all DEC staff for their commitment to continue to provide services to families as best we can through these difficult times. While DEC is closed, teachers and staff will be posting weekly learning opportunities.  While these are not mandatory activities we believe that providing activities to families that are developmentally appropriate would help guide families in supporting their children during social distancing. Remember that all we do with our children is a learning experience.  Our young children have yet so much to learn and social distancing reminds us that parents are our children's first and best teachers. 


I encourage you to read to your children, do activities that include numbers and remember to laugh and play with your children every day. Ask them the important questions: Why? How? When? let them explore to find the answers.  


To access your child's classroom activities for the week, please click on the "For Students" tab. You can access activities for your child by clicking on your child's classroom. DEC hopes families will find the activities enriching and fun.  


Wishing you all well,

Elizabeth Lucero, Ed.S.

LDOE Staff, Parents, Community Members, and Students,

The Laguna Department of Education has extended the closure of schools and programs through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.  All school events and activities scheduled during the remainder of the school year, including Summer School, are canceled.  As a result of this action, LDOE schools have developed a continuation of education plan for the remainder of the school year. 

DEC staff will be delivering instructional packets to the students/parents on Monday, April 20th at the regular DEC student bus stops.  The distribution of instructional materials will begin at 10:00 AM and continue to the next bus stop every 10 minutes.  This schedule will be followed every Monday until further notice.  Diapers, pull-ups, formula, will be delivered every two weeks until diaper/pull-ups, formula, is out of stock at DEC.  Delivery occurs at the same time as instructional packets via DEC student bus stops.

For all LDOE employees, your supervisor will be communicating respective work schedules.  Please note that work schedules are subject to change.  Contact your supervisor if you have any questions. 

Information will also be posted on our website, Facebook and marquee board.

LDOE will continue to provide breakfast and lunch to go meals between 9:00 AM and 11 AM on Monday through Friday, April 20th thru May 21st, at the following locations for all students 18 years old and younger: Paguate Recreation Hall, Laguna K'awaika Center, Green Acres Playground, Seama Computer Lab, Casa Blanca and Paraje at the Paraje Recreation Hall, Mesita Computer Lab, and Encinal Recreation Hall. Please encourage your children to go and grab a breakfast and lunch meal to go.  We remind students to leave the premise once they receive their meals, honor the social distancing.  Stay safe.

LDOE PARENTS: Please update your contact information by calling your student's school: Division of Early Childhood: 552-6544
