A Message from the Superintendent: 12/16/21

Dear RCSD Community,

For the time being, I will be sending out one notification of positive cases to the community each night, rather than sending individual school notifications. As a reminder, you can see the complete log of notifications on the COVID page of the District’s website.

The District was informed today of the following individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19:

  • 3 individuals at Rye High School  - all last in school December 15 - one case resulted in quarantines
  • 4 individuals at Rye Middle School - one last in school December 10, one on December 14, one on December 15, and one on December 16 - no additional school-related contract tracing or quarantines required
  • 1 individual at Midland School - last in school on December 15 - no additional school-related contract tracing or quarantines required
  • 2 individuals at Milton School - both last in school on December 14 - no additional school-related contract tracing or quarantines required
  • 2 individuals at Osborn School - both last in school on December 15 - no additional school-related contact tracing or quarantines required

The individuals are currently in quarantine. Due to federal health privacy laws, additional information about the individuals cannot be released.

Please be assured that we will continue to do everything in our power to keep the Rye City School District community safe. 

Sincerely,

Eric Byrne, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
