  • Schools asked to vote on referenda items
    Schools around the state have just the remainder of this week to make their thoughts known to the New Mexico Activities Association about several referenda items. The NMAA, which governs most interscholastic high school and middle school athletic programs around the state, is asking schools for its opinions on eight separate issues. Among the items that would have the most immediate impact to schools is one in which the NMAA would change its bylaws to add a heat illness prevention protocol. Teams would not be allowed to practice if the heat index for an area is above 104.
