  • RCSD Community Update: 4/9/21

    I hope you and your families had a terrific spring break. This week, we welcomed back to full-time, in-person school our 11th and 12th graders. We are thrilled to have every student who wants to be back in the schools, and the kids seem so happy to be back together with their classmates. Things are feeling quite pre-COVID, with the exception of masks, desk shields, and social distancing, of course.

  • RHS 4th Quarter In-Person vs. Fully-Remote Instruction

    I hope this letter arrives to find you and your loved ones healthy and safe. As we enter the fourth quarter and the home stretch of the school year, we continue to plan with health and safety as our top priority. To help us in our planning, we are once again reaching out to families to ask them to make a decision as to whether their student(s) will choose to remain fully remote for the fourth quarter or will attend school in person. The fourth quarter begins on April 15 and ends on June 25.

  • Please Welcome Dr. Patricia Murray, RCSD Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment

    As many of you know, the District’s Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, Sherri Goffman, is retiring at the end of the school year after five years of service to the District. Sherri first came to Rye as the Interim Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Assessment and Instruction in 2016. She has greatly expanded the District’s professional learning efforts and curriculum development and will be greatly missed, but we wish her all the very best as she heads off to enjoy retirement.

  • RCSD Community Update: 3/26/21

    This week, we welcomed back to full-time, in-person school our 9th and 10th graders. We are thrilled to have them back in the building. As many of you recall from pre-COVID days, dismissal time can be fairly wild with both RMS and RHS students flowing out of the buildings simultaneously. On Wednesday afternoon, things got a little hairier (pun intended) when a groundhog inserted himself into the process. I’m told that said groundhog lodged himself under a parent’s car on Parsons Street during dismissal and refused to budge. Fortunately, a member of the Rye Police Department was on hand for traffic control and was able to remove the groundhog. I am confident this will make it to the Police Blotter next week. Wednesday evening, Evans Anderson, a sixth grade student at RMS sent me a blow-by-blow account of ‘Groundhog Gate’ as he called it. Evans shared, “The adult told us to back up from the groundhog. Even more adults started arriving, turning into a full blown traffic jam.” The perfect combination for a little bit of chaos, a stubborn groundhog, lots of cars and several hundred middle school students!
