Schools closed Feb. 24

Due to the persisting icy conditions on roadways in Rio Rancho, classes at all Rio Rancho Public Schools are canceled for today, Thursday, Feb. 24 (this includes the SpaRRk Academy and Rio Rancho Cyber Academy). 

We recognize that conditions will improve throughout the morning; however, in order to have school, buses would need to start their routes now and the conditions are still unsafe for buses and drivers on both major roadways and side roads. Safety is always our top priority. In addition, while we understand that your neighborhood may not appear to have much snow or ice, Rio Rancho Public Schools’ boundaries are expansive and many areas are unsafe for travel. 

The S.A.F.E. program WILL NOT operate on Thursday, Feb. 24. In addition, the RRPS COVID-19 testing site, operated by PMG USA, will be closed for today. Athletics practices and/or competitions will continue after-school as scheduled.

We will continue to monitor conditions throughout the day. Should any changes to class schedules be issued for tomorrow, we will update you via email, text, phone message, on local news stations, on our website and on our social media accounts.

We appreciate your understanding and continued partnership.
