Face Covering Guidelines

RPS Face Covering Guidelines

Effective May 28, 2021

 

Rogers Public Schools encourages students and staff to follow safety measures to help reduce the spread of infectious diseases.  Per CDC Guidelines and Arkansas Law, individuals who have been fully vaccinated can resume normal activities that they did prior to the pandemic.  Individuals who have not been fully vaccinated are encouraged (not required) to continue to wear a face covering, especially in large group settings.  Rogers Public Schools will continue to follow safety guidance when practical.  Safety measures include social distancing when feasible, handwashing, avoiding large crowds and gatherings, encouraging students to cover coughs and sneezes, cleaning and disinfecting of high touch areas, and self-monitoring for any symptoms.  Individuals twelve and older are encouraged to get vaccinated.  For more guidance, please click on the links below:
