Classes to resume at Aztec High School

Students from Aztec High School are reunited with family at McGee Park on Thursday after a man posing as a student entered the school and shot two students before shooting himself.

AZTEC – Classes will resume next week as Aztec works to recover in the wake of a school shooting last week that left two students and the gunman dead.

District Superintendent Kirk Carpenter announced the schedule for school on Tuesday.

Students and families can visit the school and reconnect with teachers on Thursday and Friday. On Monday, they’ll start the day with an assembly before heading to class.

Carpenter says he wants to respect and honor the two victims of last Thursday’s shooting by providing time for students and staff to mourn. He also said students need a sense of normalcy and returning to class will help with that.

Officials say the school has received a waiver for state-required end-of-course exams as the semester is close to wrapping up.
