At the April 9, 2019, meeting, the Board of Education voted to bring a new capital bond referendum to the community. The vote will be held on Tuesday, June 11, from 7:00 AM - 9:00 PM in the Rye Middle School Gymnasium at 3 Parsons Street.
The District paired with RyeACT to create the attached flyer with practical information about the use of e-cigarettes (commonly known as "vapes") by our community's youth. It also contains photos of some of the most common devices.
As you know, beginning this school year, the District changed its online food service payment provider to MySchoolBucks. Now that we are almost one month into school, I’d like to provide you with an update on the service.
