  • RCSD Community Update

    Over the last week, we have seen an increase in the positive COVID-19 cases in the communities around us and several area schools needing to close temporarily. We also faced our first cases of COVID-19 at RMS and RHS. Each positive test result is a unique situation and requires an individual response, which can present some challenges. We will be discussing the impact of positive cases in more detail at our Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, October 13, but below please find a short primer on how the District handles these situations.
