Updates to Health and Safety Plans Recommended by Admin and Approved by Board March 23

 

The district continues to be proactive in monitoring and responding to developments concerning Covid-19. On March 23, a few changes to the RTSD Health and Safety Plan (click here) and the Athletics Health and Safety Plan (click here) were approved by our Board.


Notably, the district and schools now reserve the right to require students to submit to COVID-19 testing to participate in athletics, events, and activities. The testing might be done on a case-by-case basis for individual sports, events, or activities, or required for all sports, events, and activities.


Another change to note, while gaiter-style masks are still prohibited in our buildings, student-athletes may be permitted to wear gaiters on a case-by-case basis while they are on the field. Determinations will be made by district administration in consultation with the athletic director and building principal.
