The Cure Looks Like You!
Every 4 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and may need a marrow transplant. Most do not have a matching donor in their family. Our family of RRPS nurse’s would like to help change that. On October 30th  at Rio Rancho High School in conjunction with the RRHS/CHS volleyball teams we will be holding a “Be The Match” registry drive. It takes just a simple mouth swab and paperwork to start the lifesaving process. Doors open at 3:30. Come join and become a possible donor to save a life.
It's That Time of Year!

Happy Autumn! It must be time for the Galloping Grace Youth Ranch Pumpkin Patch! Open from Saturday, Sept. 27 to Halloween, please come join in the educational and fun festivities. Click here for details!

Carpool Lane Reminder

Parents this is just a reminder that you should not use your cell phones while picking up students in the carpool lanes.  Often parents are texting and/or talking on their cell phones while driving.  Not only does this impair their abilities to navigate the vehicle in the driving lane, it is also a grave safety issue for staff who are conducting traffic and for students who are passengers in those vehicles.  According to the CDC website on driving and cell phones,  In 2011, 3,331 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver, compared to 3,267 in 2010. An additional, 387,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver in 2011, compared to 416,000 people injured in 2010.” (http://www.cdc.gov/Motorvehiclesafety/Distracted_Driving/index.html :retrieved April 1, 2014)

Please note this is a violation of district policy!  If you have any further concerns, or questions, please refer to the Rio Rancho Public Schools Website and review policy/procedures in the Sandia Vista Elementary School Parent and Student Handbook. It is on pg.5 under the heading Arrivals/Departures.
