Rio Mesa’s caring closet is up and running.  Rio Mesa students can go to any adult if they need hygiene supplies.  No clothes is being collected at this time because there is no  space.  We are working to ensure that the student’s identity remains anonymous.  They can come to room 75 or any adult on campus can give them access to the closet that provides items for those in need.
