  • RCSD Community Update: 4/16/21

    Things are feeling a lot more “business as usual” over at the High School these days. This week, RHS students and faculty participated in the traditional spirit week activities in preparation for tomorrow’s 3:00 p.m. Rye Harrison football game. Students, faculty, and staff dressed in red, white, and blue, beach attire, and even robes and pajamas. An after-school pep rally is planned for high school students (only) today to pump everyone up for The Game. Unfortunately, New York State Department of Health regulations prevent fans from gathering in Nugent Stadium, but players are allowed to invite two spectators each so there won’t be a shortage of socially distanced cheers on Sunday. The game will be broadcast live on the LocalLive free streaming service for the wider Rye and Harrison communities to watch: https://events.locallive.tv/school/rye-hs

  • International Travel Quarantine Update

    I am writing to provide an update regarding international travel quarantine requirements. As of this morning, the New York State Department of Health and Westchester County have updated their quarantine requirements to more closely reflect CDC guidance. As a result, asymptomatic people are no longer required to quarantine or test for COVID-19 after international travel.

  • RCSD Community Update: 4/9/21

    I hope you and your families had a terrific spring break. This week, we welcomed back to full-time, in-person school our 11th and 12th graders. We are thrilled to have every student who wants to be back in the schools, and the kids seem so happy to be back together with their classmates. Things are feeling quite pre-COVID, with the exception of masks, desk shields, and social distancing, of course.

  • RHS 4th Quarter In-Person vs. Fully-Remote Instruction

    I hope this letter arrives to find you and your loved ones healthy and safe. As we enter the fourth quarter and the home stretch of the school year, we continue to plan with health and safety as our top priority. To help us in our planning, we are once again reaching out to families to ask them to make a decision as to whether their student(s) will choose to remain fully remote for the fourth quarter or will attend school in person. The fourth quarter begins on April 15 and ends on June 25.
