Student placement notifications are delayed due to unexpectedly high student enrollment. Rye City schools are now reporting enrollment of 3,316 students, over 100 more than expected.
Dates of notification letters are noted below:
August 29, 2013
The District is experiencing tremendous fluctuation of enrollment, particularly at the elementary school level. As a result, student placement decisions cannot be finalized until next week for students in grades 1 through 5.
During the month of August, the District registered over 80 students. This week alone we enrolled 13 new students. Enrollment is up over 100 students from last year's count at this time – bringing our total current enrollment to 3,316 students. This unpredictability in enrollment is even more surprising given the District's demographers anticipated a 3,200 count for the 2013-2014 school year.
We are delaying student placement notifications in order to ensure that we are accommodating all student needs responsibly. We anticipate that letters for grades 1 through 5 students will be mailed on Wednesday, September 4.
Kindergarten placement letters will be mailed today – Thursday, August 29.
Middle School and High School schedules will be mailed on Friday, August 30.
Thank you for your patience and enjoy the Labor Day weekend.
