As we begin the month of December, it's important to remember that we still live in a COVID-19 world. Together, we can work to maintain COVID safety practices to reduce the spread of the virus, keep our students and staff healthy, and keep students in classrooms this school year.
For the month of November, Rio Rancho Public Schools ended with 298 positive COVID-19 cases, a significant increase from the previous month. While many factors can contribute to an increase in cases, our case counts are still well below the 3% threshold set by the Public Education Department as an indicator that additional safety measures may be required.
We ask that all students, staff, parents and guardians continue to practice social distancing, wear a face mask while indoors, wash hands frequently, avoid touching your face and regularly sanitize frequent touch points. Together we can work to eliminate risks from COVID-19.
