Dear RCSD Families,
In two short weeks, our students will be enjoying their first day of summer vacation, and our teachers will be closing up their classrooms.
While the beautiful weather may tempt you to fall into summer vacation mode, in today’s video I encourage each of our scholars to spend these last weeks of school staying focused and doing your very best, whether preparing for exams or benefiting from valuable classroom instruction. I feel extremely fortunate that we have been able to remain in person for most of this school year, which makes it so important to attend school every day, continue working hard, and finish the year strong.
I want to send good wishes to all of our scholars taking a Regents exam, as they begin next week. Your teachers have been preparing you all year long, so just relax and do your best. I am confident you will excel!
To our Class of 2022 graduates … you are almost at the finish line, with our first graduation ceremonies less than two weeks away. I am so proud and honored to congratulate you as a 2022 graduate of the Rochester City School District, and I look forward to seeing many of you cross the stage, as we recognize your hard work, dedication, and perseverance. Seize this moment and take the time to celebrate your accomplishments with family and friends because you did it!
Dr. Lesli Myers-Small
Superintendent of Schools
