COVID-19/Coronavirus Updates & Resources

All RCS schools are closed through the remainder of the academic school year due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health situation. For updated information from the school district, including important notices, reentry efforts, learning resources, food distribution plans, child care resources and more, please visit the COVID-19/Reentry page.

Working papers available for students

Are you a student seeking employment? Any interested student(s) can schedule a time to come to the RCS High School main office to obtain the paperwork necessary for employment opportunities. The main office at the RCS High School is currently open on Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. You can reach them by appointment ONLY at (518) 756-5200 ext. 2000. Documents can also be downloaded and that information can be accessed here: Youth Employment Application AT-17 and the New York State Physical Fitness Certification AT-16.

Please note that every student is required to have an updated physical (within the last year). Parents/caregivers need to sign the appropriate documentation, and the student(s) need to sign the card in front of district officials after they provide the signed paperwork and physical information. If necessary, RCS school officials can mail the necessary paperwork home, and then the child needs to come in with the completed paperwork and required physical to get the card OR if the parent /caregiver and student come in together with the physical, the card can be processed that day.

If you have further questions, parents/caregivers and students can locate guidelines for employment at the New York State Department of Labor website, here.
