Rio Rancho Public Schools has had its first confirmed cases of COVID-19 since students returned to campus last week for a hybrid of in-person and online learning.
District spokeswoman Beth Pendergrass said a fourth grader at Sandia Vista Elementary School tested positive, which was confirmed Tuesday. The district’s website also shows a student case was confirmed Wednesday in a Puesta del Sol Elementary third grade class.
Around 4,000 elementary and preschool students returned to schools in the Rio Rancho district under a hybrid learning model. The younger students come to school four days each week while fourth and fifth graders attend classes in person two days each week.
