RCAS sets September 8 as back to school date


News Staff - July 27, 2020

RAPID CITY, S.D. - The Rapid City Area School Board on Monday night approved September 8 as the date for area schools to begin in-the-classroom learning.

The board agreed this will give teachers more time to train for what could be a very different looking year due to COVID-19.

Superintendent Dr. Lori Simon said this will also give some time to see the effects after the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

While Simon works on a new calendar, she proposed elimination of snow days. Rather, students will use technology to learn remotely on those days instead.

The board also voted 6-1 to begin allowing students at Stevens and Central High Schools to start soccer tryouts, dance practice and focused trainings for other sports.

RCAS says they will share more information about its 'Together Again - Back to School Plan' with staff and then families later this week ahead of the Tuesday, August 4th Board meeting.
