    I hope everyone will turn out in droves this Sunday at 11:00 a.m. for the Class of 2021 graduation float parade. The 10-float parade starts at the train station, makes its way down Purchase Street, winds its way around Fireman’s Circle, then proceeds down Milton Road before ending in front of the High School on Parsons Street. We hope the whole community will come out to cheer on our seniors.

    Please remember that there is no school next Friday, May 28, due to the snow/emergency giveback day. I will also not be sending a community update that Friday. If there is new information from the State or Department of Health related to the schools, I will communicate that separately.

  • RCSD Community Update 5/14/21

    As is the case with almost everything this year, we’ve had a hard time getting an answer from the State Education Department about snow/emergency closings. After finally receiving some clarity, I can now communicate that all District schools and offices will be closed next Friday, May 28, as a result of only using two snow/emergency days this year. Each year, the school district calendar is built with a certain number of snow days that exceed our required number of school days. When we do not use all of our snow days, we have what we call ‘giveback days’ when schools are closed. As Governor Cuomo declared a state of emergency on one of our snow days, we have a ‘giveback’ day which is noted on the approved calendar as May 28. Thank you for all of your flexibility as we continue to grapple with constant changes in guidance and mandates.

  • Race Inclusivity and Community Task Force Update: 5/12/21

    At the May 4th Board of Education meeting, we heard clear consensus from all who spoke about both the need for the Race, Inclusivity and Community Task Force and the desire to have a stronger sense of inclusion in our schools for all students. Still, there is some lingering misinformation being perpetuated about the work and the Task Force. We are writing to correct these inaccuracies and provide the facts.

  • RCSD Community Update: 5/7/21

    This Friday, I have some exciting news to share with you. The RCSD has been chosen by White Plains Hospital to serve as a pop-up clinic site to administer the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to our students on Friday, May 21, during the school day, with the second dose to follow on Friday, June 11. The Pfizer vaccine is currently approved for children ages 16+, but there is the distinct possibility it will be approved for use in ages 12-15 by May 21. White Plains Hospital has asked us to gauge parent interest in students receiving the vaccine. If you are interested in having your RHS, RMS, and/or 5th-grade student (age 12 or above) vaccinated on May 21/June 11, please complete the Google form linked below. Please complete a separate form for each of your children.
