Learn about Rye Country Day's process of moving to distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hybrid-flex learning is made possible by leading-edge technology and skilled faculty. RCDS classrooms are equipped with MashMe, a digital education platform that enables integrated real-time online multimedia collaboration with many-to-many live video interactions. MashMe allows one group of students to learn in-person at school while another group participates synchronously from another location.
Ultimately, it’s the people at Rye Country Day who make the School. Although we prefer to be together in person at all times, we know we can successfully deliver on our mission through a hybrid-flex program. Out of challenge comes opportunity. My confidence in the Rye Country Day community is vast.
