RYE, N.Y. – For Rye schools to make up for emergency days lost due to Hurricane Sandy, the district has announced some amendments to its calendar.
After the hurricane hit the area Oct. 29, all Rye City Schools were closed for the week. Most schools except Milton and Osborn reopened the Monday after the hurricane and remained open on Election Day to make up for one of the lost days.
There is no change to the December recess beginning Dec. 24 and concluding Jan. 1.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 21 and Memorial Day on May 27 will still be holidays for students.
There will also be no change in the midwinter vacation scheduled for Feb. 18 to 22.
There will be no change in the spring vacation scheduled for March 25 to 29.
If it is necessary to use additional emergency days, in case of snow, for example, schools will be open March 27 and 28. If needed, March 28 would be the first day used and March 27 would be the second.
Classes will end as expected for Rye High School, Rye Middle School and Midland Elementary School students on Thursday, June 20. However, staff at these schools will return June 21, 24 and 25 for Superintendent’s Conference Days.
Classes will end for students attending Milton and Osborn elementary schools on Monday, June 24, instead of June 20. Staff will return on June 25, 26 and 27 for Superintendent’s Conference Days.
Overall, students will complete 176 school days, and all staff will participate in four Superintendent's Conference Days to fulfill the 180-day requirement.
