RCAS Elementary students will move to Level 1 next Monday
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - Students attending elementary school in the Rapid City Area Schools District will physically be in school beginning Sept. 21. Monday through Thursday.
A Level 1 status means that COVID-19 cases in Pennington County are increasing by less than 50% from the two weeks prior, according to the state Department of Health figures. At this level, there is low or mild community spread and no confirmed cases in any of the schools.
Friday’s will still be an off-campus learning day. This does not apply to students who are doing full-time distance learning.
Middle and High school students will remain at Level 2 next week as the District still has a large number of students and staff in quarantine at the secondary level. Simon is hoping that by the end of the month they can also move to Level 1.
