Bond Construction

bond dollars at work banner

In 2019, residents elected to pass a $22.5 million dollar bond for facility improvements and additions.  Bonds will be sold in phases to support the different phases of construction and enhancements.  Below you will find progress photos of the projects.  In some cases, where construction has not begun, architecture drawings of the completed project will be displayed.  We are excited to grow and enhance our facilities for our students and community. 

Rio Rico Cafeteria Expansion


The current cafeteria will be expanded and updated.  Currently, the cafetorium is a dual space for the theatre and cafeteria.  With expansion, the theatre will be relocated. The stage will be transformed into seating.

The RRHS Theatre complex will bring all the elements of theatre to one space.  The theatre currently shares space in the cafeteria.  The theatre center will be relocated to the current RRHS library, where it will be transformed.
