District News

  • RCSD Community Update: 10/15/21

    Next week (October 18-22) marks New York State Board of Education Recognition Week. The seven members of the RCSD Board of Education work tirelessly on behalf of the students, families, faculty, and staff of the Rye City schools. We are fortunate to have such a hardworking and dedicated group of volunteers serving on our Board of Education. Please take a moment to thank a school board member for all they give to the community of Rye, this coming week and every week.

  • RCSD Community Update: 10/8/21

    A few parents have asked me if we will have to make up for those two days our schools were closed after Ida. The short answer is “no.” Because the Governor declared a State of Emergency, those days are not counted against us. I have also confirmed this is the case with the State Education Department. Our three snow/emergency days remain unused.

  • Community Members Needed for District Committees

    The Rye City School District is in need of community volunteers to serve on three District committees: Audit, Facilities, and Technology. The District’s working committees offer thoughtful and critical recommendations for the effective and efficient operation of the schools. They focus on specific, annual charges and report progress at Board of Education meetings periodically throughout the year.

  • Parent Assistance with Mask Requirements

    I hope everyone has enjoyed the first three weeks of school. Since we have returned to school, the staff and I have found we need to remind students to wear their masks at all times when they are in the school somewhat frequently. In addition, teachers have expressed concern about students wearing their masks improperly, e.g. not covering the nose, or mouth, or both. Please remind your student(s) that all RMS students, faculty, and staff are required to wear a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. This is not just school or District policy; this is State law. Masks are optional outdoors.

    Happy October! We have a lot to celebrate this month. Tomorrow, October 2, is National Custodial Workers Day. The District’s custodial staff has been absolutely incredible this year, keeping our schools spotless in the wake of Ida, the resulting remediation, and ongoing construction. I wrote about their dedication in my letter in September’s Superintendent’s Bulletin. I know our parent organizations have some special things planned for our custodians to thank them, but if you see one of these wonderful gentlemen around the schools, please add your thanks. October is also National Principals Month. Please take a moment to acknowledge your school principal(s) for their contribution to student - and teacher - success.
