Updated COVID Guidance

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.


Dr. Matt Vance
