RRPS Facility Rentals

RRPS opens its facilities to community organizations and businesses.  Facilities are only available to rent when the rental doesn’t interfere with school functions. Please be aware that Rio Rancho Public School-sponsored events and extracurricular activities hold priority. Facility rentals are permitted only when they do not conflict with the needs of RRPS students. Consequently, certain locations or rooms may not be available for rental at all times. While we strive to anticipate our school's needs and schedule events well in advance, there may be rare occasions where a previously scheduled community event needs to be rescheduled. In such instances, we will make every effort to provide enough notice and assist in relocating your event to another facility within the district if available or provide an alternate date for your event.

If you are interested in reserving an RRPS Facility, please go to our Facility Use Scheduling Calendar, this will be your gateway to registering for an account, checking availability, and entering your reservation.

All reservations will be canceled should schools close due to inclement weather. Individual buildings are empowered to deny any requests they feel conflict with school schedules, missions, or events. Facilities are closed during Holidays/Breaks, resulting in any community use/outside organization events, practices, or games that fall on a Holiday, Break, and/or No School Day will be declined and/or canceled
