     Dear RCS Families and Staff,

    Last evening the RCS Board of Trustees approved an adjustment to our Opening of School Plan. The change involves a requirement for face coverings/masks to be worn inside of our facilities effective Thursday September 9th. This is a result of several factors which include:

    • Last Week Governor Holcomb issued an Executive Order stating that all schools must follow the Control Measure in place from the Indiana Department of Health. This left us with the choice of either quarantining all unvaccinated close contacts or requiring face coverings/masks. Up to this point our number of students who were deemed in close contact is over 600. Our goal is to keep kids in school and students/staff from being quarantined. Those who are identified as close contact in a classroom and are not showing symptoms will not be required to quarantine. Close contacts will still be identified and parents will be notified. This Order is currently in effect until September 30th. The federal mandate for face coverings/masks to be worn on school buses is in effect currently until January.
    • Our number of positive students increased significantly in the last week, as well as our number of positives in Rush County. Area hospitals are starting to see an increase in activity as well with positive patients.
    • We work closely with the Rush County Health Department on our procedures, and the recommendation has been made for us to implement a face covering/masking requirement.

    Face coverings/masks will be a requirement at RCS until September 30th. This could change if the Governor's Order is extended or our local situation makes us feel it is necessary. We are trying to keep our students and staff safe and healthy while keeping schools open and as normal as possible. We are attempting to avoid a closure/virtual setting. I understand this may not be a popular decision for some. Your continued cooperation and patience is greatly appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Matt Vance, Superintendent

    Last year's seniors may begin picking up their yearbooks in the main office after 10 a.m. on Monday, August 16th.

    This year's students will have their 2020-2021 yearbooks delivered in school next week. 

    04 August 2021
    The goal for the 2021-2022 school year is to operate as normal as possible while continuing to keep students and staff safe and healthy. Several steps from last year's plan will still be in place, however, the following changes are being made:
    • Masks-The wearing of masks at school is optional, however, the CDC recommends indoor masking for all students and staff regardless of vaccination status.
    • Masks on buses will be required per federal mandate at this time.
    • Social Distancing-when possible in classrooms, and other areas
    • Individuals who test positive or experience symptoms should stay home for a minimum of 10 days following the onset of symptoms or a positive test result.
    • Contact Tracing/Quarantining- When a positive case is discovered, we will still contact trace (for those within 3 feet for 15 minutes). Two options will be available:
      • Parents may wish to quarantine their child for 7 days if no symptoms appear, precautions, and a negative test. Or 10 days with precautions, or 14 days without testing or precautions.
      • Individuals may attend school under the following circumstances:
        • No symptoms appear
        • Must wear a mask for 5 consecutive school days
        • If symptoms do appear, the individual must stay home until symptoms are resolved and no fever for 48 hours without the use of fever reducing medication
        • Those who are vaccinated do not need to quarantine but should monitor for symptoms and isolate if symptoms develop
    • We will continue to promote hand washing/sanitizing
    • Water fountains will be back on, cleaned frequently, and bottle fillers will be encouraged (we have some in each building)
    • Enhanced cleaning will be utilized as much as needed
    • Self-screening will still be encouraged
    • Schools may have additional guidelines
    Our entire plan will be subject to change based on current status
