Update for May 3rd

The temporary shutdown is now over and the original Return to In-Person Learning plan will continue.  Students that had already returned on-site can return yet again on Monday, May 3, 2021.  RCS has taken every step to limit the spread of COVID-19 but families need to remember to use the  COVID-19 Screening Tool for Families every day before sending their children to school.
