Students of Rockport Elementary School in Rockport, Indiana, will soon be returning to face-to-face instruction.

Officials with the school said Friday that as of Monday, Aug. 30, students would be returning to in-person classes.

When those students do return on Monday, they'll be required to wear masks, except for when they're seated at their desk, seated in the lunchroom, or outside. Students must also continue to wear a mask while on the bus.

Rockport Elementary School's principal is also encouraging parents to send their kids to class with a full water bottle from Monday through Wednesday since the city of Rockport will remain under a boil advisory until then.

Students who are still in quarantine will be given instructions on how to continue learning virtually until they can return.

The school makes its return to in-person instruction after going fully virtual about two weeks ago when some 40% of its staff were either ill or in quarantine.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
