Michael Schmidt, Covid-19 Coordinator

  • Mr. Michael Schmidt, Chief Operation Officer, will serve as the district’s COVID-19 Coordinator. Mr. Schmidt and the Operations Office will work closely with our local health department. The Operations Office will serve as a central contact for schools and stakeholders, families, staff and other school community members and will ensure the district is in compliance and following the best practices per state and federal guidelines. You can contact the RCSD Support Hotline by calling (585) 262-8700 or by visiting our district’s website.

    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 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and the New York State Education Department (NYSED).

    It is possible that we may need to alternate between in-person and remote learning throughout the year due to recommendations and guidance from our partnering agencies, and stay-at-home orders from the Governor. The level of infection, the spread of the virus and response to the disease in our community will be at the forefront of our decision making as we move to open our schools.
