The chip is available to purchase at local gas stations and grocery stores, and can cause extreme and unpleasant side effects which may result in an ambulance being called to the school.

We arrive today at El Camino Real Academy (ECRA) named for the El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro or “Royal Road of the Interior” which is the earliest Euro-American trade route in the US that spans 3 centuries, 2 countries, and 1,600 miles. This historic trail travels from Mexico City to the San Juan Pueblo just north of the former capital of New Spain that is our city of Santa Fe. The Camino Real was a corridor that bred an exchange of cultures, languages, and ideas and its spirit lives on with the dynamic program offerings of the Academy bearing its name. Some of these are: • Being the only International Spanish Academy in New Mexico • Dual language studies for PreK through 8th grade • 21st Century after school program for K-6th • AVID programs from elementary through middle school • Ballet Folklorico, ArtSmart, the STEM Club and Santa Fe Youth Symphony • Cooking with Kids • Band, choir, piano, guitar, drama, and art Traveling the Camino Real today is a scenic and nationally recognized journey of back roads and numerous visitor sites. Keeping with this theme, the Wildcats’ middle school students are benefitting from a donation of Strider bike fleets, provided through a partnership between SFPS’ Sustainability Office and Free Bikes 4 Kidz New Mexico that includes integrating bicycle/pedestrian safety classes through the school’s physical education programs. ECRA is a focus school for the City of Santa Fe’s new Safe Routes to School program since over a third of students can walk or bike a short distance for their commute.
The Board of Education is looking for your input on the redistricting of school board member boundaries! This is NOT the rezoning of schools, the change is only to the boundaries of school board members. Learn more: https://www.sfps.info/o/sfps/page/redistricting
