Updates and Information from Rye Neck Schools

  • On August 12, 2021, the New York State Department of Education issued guidance for the opening of schools based on information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. School districts are to prioritize in-person instruction and plans for emergency remote learning, as well as for a hybrid model that combines in-person instruction and remote learning if necessary.

    Our COVID Operation Plan is for schools in the Rye Neck Union Free School District for the 2021-2022 school year. The plan includes procedures that will be followed in all four of our schools: Daniel Warren and F. E. Bellows Elementary Schools, Rye Neck Middle School, and Rye Neck High School.

    The health and safety of our students, our staff and their families is our top priority. We want students and employees to feel comfortable and safe returning to school campuses. Our reopening plan incorporates recommendations and guidance from the CDC’s Guidance for COVID-19 Prevention in K-12 Schools and the NYSED’s Health and Safety Guide for the 2021-2022 School Year, in addition to our continued partnership with the WCDOH and NYSDOH.

    Mrs. Corinne Ryan is acting as the district’s COVID-19 Coordinator. She serves as a central contact for schools and stakeholders, families, staff and other school community members and will ensure the district is in compliance with and following the best practices per state and federal guidelines. Mrs. Ryan’s contact information is cryan@ryeneck.org.
