RRPS calendars for the 2019-20 School Year

2019-20 School Year Calendar

The Rio Rancho School Board has tentatively established the following dates for the major holiday breaks in the 2019-20 calendar:

  • Thanksgiving Break: Wednesday, November 27 – Friday, November 29
  • Winter Break: Monday, December 23 – Friday, January 3
  • Spring Break: Monday, March 30 –Friday, April 3

The final adoption of a full calendar, including school year start and end dates, is delayed as the state legislature is considering a number of proposals that would, in different ways, increase the number of days students attend school (instructional calendar) and the number of days allotted for teacher training (professional development).   The legislative session ends on March 16, and the Governor has until April 5 to sign or veto bills passed by the legislature.  So it is likely that a final calendar will not be adopted by the school board until sometime in April. 

The board was able to approve tentative dates for Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, and Spring Break, as those dates are not likely to change based on the outcome of the legislative process.  Thank you for your understanding, and we will let you know as soon as a final calendar is adopted.
