  • RCSD Community Update: 5/13/22

    Dear RCSD Community, Please, please mark your calendars to come out and vote next Tuesday in the 2022-2023 school district budget and Board of Education election. In Rye, this is traditionally a very low voter turnout event. For the past five years, voter turnout averaged around 18% of all registered voters in Rye. This means that every vote truly does count!

  • RCSD Community Update: 5/6/22

    Dear RCSD Community, On Wednesday morning, I sent an email out to the community notifying them that all RCSD schools and offices will be closed on Friday, May 27, resulting in a four-day Memorial Day weekend. May 27 is an unused snow/emergency day that was built into the calendar and is not needed this year. I hope this makes for a nice break for all as we head into the end-of-year busy season.

    Spring recess is upon us! Many of you are no doubt already pointed towards the highway or the airport, and I wish you safe travels. For those of you staying here, I wish you a relaxing break. Schools will be closed all of next week, and offices will be open Monday through Wednesday with an early close (8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.) and closed Thursday and Friday. Should you wish to pick up some COVID test kits, feel free to stop by the District's offices early next week. We were gifted with another 3,000 kits last week, so no one will leave empty-handed.

    Dear RCSD Community, Next week marks the last week before our week-long spring recess. Hopefully, when we come back to school and work on April 18, spring will officially have sprung and polar vortexes will be in the rear view mirror.

  • RCSD Community Update: 3/25/22

    Yesterday, I had the pleasure of visiting the Sustainable Solutions class at the Rye Academy. Students presented a variety of potential environmental projects that they propose to undertake on campus. The ideas included planting a pollinator garden, working with Trees for Tribs to plant buffer trees along Blind Brook to decrease erosion, reduce flooding damage, and protect water quality, and/or potentially working with the Billion Oyster Project to open an oyster station on Blind Brook behind the high school.

  • RCSD Community Update: 3/11/22

    Our first full week of mask optionality is behind us. In my visits to schools this week, I’d say that about 15% of students and teachers are wearing masks and 85% are not. I noticed that a number of students and faculty were wearing masks some days and not on others. I would imagine that this will be the case for the foreseeable future as circumstances and comfort levels fluctuate day by day. Please tell your students to keep up the good work about being understanding about their classmates’ mask choices.

  • RCSD Community Update: 3/4/22

    This was a fairly momentous week here in the school district. For the first time in a year and a half, students, faculty, and staff had a choice as to whether or not to wear masks in schools. From my travels around the schools, I’d venture a guess that 25% of students wore masks and 75% went without. What I am most proud of was the kindness and tolerance shown by students to their classmates with regards to their choice to wear or not wear a mask. Thank you for speaking to your children about tolerance for others’ decisions on masking; they clearly heard you!
