RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – Rio Rancho Public Schools says most fully vaccinated people don’t have to wear a mask for the upcoming school year. The school district says if you are a fully vaccinated high school or middle school student, teacher or staff you are not required to wear face masks on campus. However, students, teachers and staff will have to prove they are fully vaccinated to obtain a “mask pass” from the district. The “mask pass” will need to be carried at all times.
