Ida damage to delay start of school year in Rye and Mamaroneck
Damage from Ida is delaying the start of school in Rye and Mamaroneck.
Both districts had buildings that sustained flood damage and, due to cleanup and repairs, the start of the fall semester has been pushed back to Monday, Sept. 13.
In a statement, Rye superintendent Dr. Eric Byrne says in part, “damage to the electrical system has completely disabled the centralized network that runs the Internet, telephone and fire systems in all of our school buildings.”
Until school opens, Byrne says the district has “contacted many youth-serving organizations in Rye to explain this challenge and request that they try to offer programming for school-aged children on September 9th and 10th. They will share any information on programming as soon as it is available.”
