The Rio Rancho Public Schools notification system is used for school-wide and district-wide notifications to parents, guardians and staff. The system may utilize four methods of communication, including app alerts, phone calls, emails and text messages. Notifications may be sent out to provide information on things such as emergency situations, weather-related delays/dismissals, special events, threat notifications, upcoming events, school attendance, or other topics of general interest. Messages may be sent via just one notification method or a combination of methods.

Changing Contact Information: If you have changed phone numbers or email addresses, please make sure to contact your school office or fill out a "change of information" form so we can update the contact information in your student's official record. *If there is an emergency situation specifically with your child, school staff will contact you directly via the contact and emergency numbers in your student's school record.
High school daily attendance calls go out at approximately 6 PM each school day. If you believe your student has been reported absent in error, or you did not contact the school office to let them know your student should be excused, please call your school's attendance office during the school's regular office hours.
Middle Schools "Safe Arrival" Calls
All RRPS middle schools make AUTOMATED daily "Safe Arrival Calls". These calls are to inform you when your middle school child is not at school and is marked as unexcused.
Calls are made within 2 hours after the start of school. Please make sure to answer these calls if at all possible. Manual calls will be made if the automated calling system was unsuccessful making contact (Only a call answered is considered successful, not calls received by an answering machine). To avoid receiving one or more attendance calls when you are aware your child will be absent, please notify the school at least one hour prior to the start of school.
If you receive a call: Please call the school Attendance Office IMMEDIATELY to let them know the reason for your child's absence or if your child should be in school.
In the event an elementary student is absent and you have not called in to report the absence, for your child's safety a school office staff member will contact you by phone directly to verify the absence.
