Testing Site Update 1-12-22: The testing site for RRPS students and staff is currently out of rapid PCR tests and Lab PCR tests for COVID-19. The PCR test is needed if you are symptomatic and need a negative test to return to your school site. Therefore, we are not able to perform testing for those needing a PCR test. We hope to have a shipment of tests soon, but do not have an exact ETA. The site does still have a limited supply of rapid antigen tests (with results ready the same day) for close contact, test-to-stay and surveillance testing. All positive results need to be reported.

RRPS COVID-19 Testing Site Update: Due to the additional transportation time needed to get the LAB PCR tests processed, the testing site will only test symptomatic students and staff between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday until further notice. Those who wish to be tested due to a close contact exposure, for surveillance or for the Test to Stay program may access Rapid Antigen testing between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

SCHOOL CLOSED SEPT. 27: Rio Rancho Public Schools is canceling school for all schools (including SpaRRk Academy and Rio Rancho Cyber Academy) tomorrow, Monday, September 27. The SAFE Program will also be canceled. Athletics activities will continue as planned. Sunday Evening, Rio Rancho Public Schools administration was notified that due to a damaged fiber optic circuit near Rainbow Boulevard, we will not have access to the internet district-wide for tomorrow, Sept. 27. While we could continue to hold classes, meals, etc., this outage impacts some of our core systems within the RRPS network, many of which impact the safety of our schools and student transportation. Therefore, we feel that the safest option at this time is to cancel school.
