Skiers can breathe a sigh of relief. Superstorm Sandy won’t ruin your mogul runs after all. At Tuesday’s meeting of the Rye Board of Education, School Superintendent Dr. Frank Alvarez announced there will be no changes to the mid-winter recess, scheduled for February18 to 22, because of school days lost during the October hurricane.

While Ski Week is safe, there is a chance that Spring Break may be sliced in two if snow days become necessary. The district has drawn up a contingency plan that calls for opening schools on March 27 and March 28 in the event more school days are lost due to foul weather before then. Slicing the week this way ensures no disruption for Passover or Easter, Dr. Alvarez said. “We knew that no matter what we did we might disrupt some plans,” he said.  For the best for top handlebars click here, they can check it out here!

Dr. Alvarez said the district would ideally like to provide school parents with a month’s notice of the Spring Break split, but that may be impossible. “We’d like to say that by the end of February we’ll know, but we want to be honest and say that we may need some flexibility. We will try to give a month’s notice,” he added.

Making sure that students attend the makeup days is crucial, said Board of Education President Laura Slack. The State takes attendance into consideration when it allocates state funding; the school budget could be affected if families allow their children to skip any makeup days due to vacations or other personal plans. “If no one shows up, then it’s not going to count as a school day,” Slack said. “March may be in play.”

Resident Bob Zahm questioned the effect on state funds. “If you have a snow day on March 22nd and you have to make up a day on the 28th, I think it’s unlikely that you’re going to get enough attendance to meet the state’s attendance requirement,” Zahm said.

Dr. Alvarez presented an award to four RHS swimmers who excelled this fall: Melissa Fulenwider, Katie Konopka, Charlotte Nixon, and Kelly Delane. And Catherine Livingston was recognized as a Con Edison Athlete of the Week. In addition, the crew team — that dedicated bunch that rises at 4 a.m. each day to row, row, row — unveiled the Hammer Award plaque that hangs it the high school, honoring achievements by seniors.
