Dear RCS Families and Staff,
On Tuesday evening the RCS Board of Trustees approved an adjustment to our Opening of School Plan. The change involves removing the county data from our matrix. From this point forward, masks/face coverings will be required when the following data points are met:
1. When a building/corporation reaches 5 % of students positive then RCS would implement a
mask/face covering mandate for that building or corporation for a minimum of two weeks.
2. When a building/corporation reaches 20% of students positive then RCS would implement
closure or e-learning for that building or corporation.
At this time, RCS does not meet any of the above metrics. Effective Monday, February 21st, masks/face
coverings will be optional.
In addition, the Indiana Department of Health will no longer be recommending contact tracing and quarantining close contacts as of February 23rd. RCS will no longer contact trace those who are in close contact of a known positive case. In certain situations, notifications will still be made of positive cases.
We will continue to stress the importance of students and staff staying home when symptomatic or waiting on test results. Accommodations for high risk students and staff can be considered by contacting the proper building administration for options.
Please note the following:
This Opening of School Plan is subject to change.
The federal bus mandate for masks/face coverings on buses will remain in effect.
We are trying to keep our students and staff safe and healthy while keeping schools open and as normal as possible. Your continued cooperation and patience is greatly appreciated.

On January 10, 2022, the school board approved a proposed change to the School Board Organization Plan to create more evenly populated election districts. The proposal would consolidate the existing 7 board election districts into 3 election districts, with 2 members elected from each district, and 1 member filling an at-large seat. We believe this adjusted configuration would allow for more participation from the community, consistent with applicable law and principles of good governance. More detail information can be found in the Board menu in Board Information.
Dear RCS Families and Staff,
Hello, I hope you had an outstanding break and are ready to begin the new semester.
Our Opening of School Plan is being updated to reflect the new guidance from the CDC and Indiana Department of Health in regards to isolation and quarantine. The Updated K-12 Guidance can be found in the Information menu above.
We are still under the mask/face covering requirement until further notice. In addition, the federal mandate requiring masks on buses is in place until at least March 18th.
Your continued cooperation is much appreciated.
Thank you, and take care.
Dr. Matt Vance
