  • RCSD Community Update: 2/26/21

    I hope everyone enjoyed a restful, regenerative mid-winter recess given that we are preparing to kick into high gear as we move forward with the District’s reopening plan. Beginning with our youngest learners, students will be returning to full-time, in-person learning starting on March 10. Please see the return timeline from my February 22 reopening communication. Fully-remote learning will still be available for those families who chose it for health or other reasons, but we are transitioning out of the hybrid model. Principals will be holding a series of virtual coffees (alas, you must bring your own java) to answer any questions parents/guardians may have.

  • RCSD Community Update: 2/12/21

    At most school breaks, we are all usually exhausted and ready for some downtime. I am not sure how to elucidate the feeling that many of us have today as we head off for mid-winter break; COVID-fatigued, screen glazed, or just plain done with all the extraordinary challenges we have been facing for nearly a year. In my community forums this week, I have spoken of the herculean efforts that our faculty, staff, and administration have made over these past months attempting to recreate education, engage children, and deliver the best possible educational program in incredibly challenging circumstances. I am grateful for all that our team has done in the face of such adversity.

    At a White House briefing today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky announced that the CDC will release guidance on school reopenings in the coming week. I will share this information with the community as soon as it is available.

  • RCSD In-Person and Fully-Remote Survey/Last Night’s BoE Meeting/Reopening Q&As

    Thank you to those of you who were able to attend last night’s Board of Education meeting about the District’s proposed reopening. Unfortunately, the platform that the District uses for Board meetings, Google Meets, automatically caps meeting attendance at 250 on a first-come, first-served basis. We know that many in our community who wanted to watch the meeting were unable to do so, and for that, we apologize most sincerely. A video of the meeting will be posted to the District's website shortly. In the meantime, the presentation slide deck from last night’s meeting is attached for your reference.

  • RCSD Community Update and COVID Testing Sign-Up Link

    It looks as if Mother Nature may be sending some snow our way on Sunday night into Monday. Please remember that while we might have rain and slush here in comparatively-balmy Rye, there may well be snow and ice on the roads our teachers and staff use to get to work. Also, the extreme cold snap that we are presently enduring will cause snow to rapidly accumulate on roadways. Please keep an eye or ear open for any weather-related announcements. I also post District-related announcements on Twitter @EricByrneRCSD. Feel free to follow me.

  • RCSD Community Update: 1/22/21

    I am continually impressed by our students and their incredible sense of community as well as their desire to help others. A group of industrious Rye High School students has been working closely with our High School administrative team to develop a plan to support seniors in our community with scheduling appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine. If you needed some inspiration or something to brighten your day - this is it. Kudos, kids!

  • RCSD Community Update: 1/15/21

    The District has seen a marked decrease in the number of new COVID-19 cases and in the number of students, faculty, and staff required to quarantine. There have been two positive cases at Rye High School and one at Midland School this week. Only the Midland case required any additional individual people to be quarantined, and, due to the new quarantine guidelines, the number of people required to quarantine as a result was quite small. Our hard work and months of lobbying the Department of Health seem to have paid off, enabling us to quarantine far fewer individuals. For more information about the Westchester County Department of Health’s new quarantine guidelines, see my communication from this Monday by clicking here. I am very hopeful that both of these encouraging new trends will continue.
