  • Halloween 2020

    We are midway through October, and the leaves are starting to turn. Along with the season comes the tradition of Halloween celebrations. This year, due to COVID-19, we will need to re-imagine Halloween at Rye Middle School so that children have a memorable experience while still staying safe. This year, students will be permitted to wear costumes, but we will not host the usual Halloween Party after school.

  • Intramurals Grades 6-8

    As you are probably aware, Section One canceled modified interscholastic athletics for the fall season. In response, we have put together an intramural sports program here at Rye Middle School for students in grades 6-8. We hope that this will provide a healthy physical and social-emotional outlet for our students.

  • RCSD Community Update

    Over the last week, we have seen an increase in the positive COVID-19 cases in the communities around us and several area schools needing to close temporarily. We also faced our first cases of COVID-19 at RMS and RHS. Each positive test result is a unique situation and requires an individual response, which can present some challenges. We will be discussing the impact of positive cases in more detail at our Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, October 13, but below please find a short primer on how the District handles these situations.
