Due to the passage of Senate Bill 658, RRTC will not require masks, but highly recommends the wearing of masks by students, staff and visitors.
RRTC also does not require any COVID-19 vaccination for enrollment or attendance. However, we do understand the vaccine is very helpful in preventing and/or lessening the effects of the COVID-19 virus and strongly encourage our students, staff, and stakeholders to consult with their healthcare professional to determine if a vaccination may be the right choice for them.
RRTC asks our students and staff to self-monitor for any symptoms and not attend school if symptoms are present. Please be sure to notify the front office of your absence and obtain a note from your doctor’s office or urgent care facility for attendance purposes.
