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:

  • 20 individuals at Rye High School – 19 last in school on January 4 and one on January 6 – no additional school-related contact tracing or quarantines required
  • 10 individuals at Rye Middle School – all last in school on January 4 – no additional school-related contact tracing or quarantines required
  • 7 individuals at Midland School – six last in school on January 4 and one on January 6 – no additional school-related contact tracing or quarantines required
  • 9 individuals at Osborn School – all last in school on January 4 – no additional school-related contact tracing or quarantines required
  • 6 individuals at Milton School – all last in school on January 4 – one of the cases resulted in quarantines

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
