  • Dear Caesar Rodney Family,

    The Caesar Rodney School District is committed to preventing the spread of the flu in our schools and local community.  The CR School Nurses partnered with Safeway Pharmacist, Kobus, to provide flu clinics for the faculty and staff at each of our schools and at the District Office. Over 300 employees in the Caesar Rodney School District have already been vaccinated against the flu this school year! Look for the CR Flu Fighter Ribbons attached to the name tags of district employees.

     We encourage you and your family to join us in the fight against the flu by getting your flu shot today!


Superintendent Message

  • Welcome Message From The Superintendent 
     Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald
      What a great year to be a Rider! So many changes have been made thanks to the wonderful support from our Rider community. During the summer, we had major construction projects going on at five schools: Caesar Rodney High School, Fred Fifer III and F. Niel Postlethwait middle schools as well as Star Hill and Nellie Hughes Stokes elementary schools. Heating and air conditioning systems were upgraded, new roofs added and classrooms upgraded. At the high school, the new athletic fields at the high school are completed while demolition and construction projects have begun.

      Moving forward, we will begin in earnest for the construction of the new ninth grade academy wing and the opening of our new Rider stadium and auxiliary stadium. Construction at the rest of the schools will be on hold until next summer where we will once again pick up where we left off since the HVAC systems in some of our buildings were not changed over.

      We have also hired a number of new administrators including principal Jennifer Martin at Simpson Elementary, assistant principal Ashley Holmes, also at Simpson, and assistant principal Kerri Carr to Stokes Elementary. Congratulations to each of these outstanding administrators.

      Our athletic teams are true “Road Warriors” this year! Our football, soccer and field hockey teams all played away games until October 12th when our new fields opened for competition. It was truly a homecoming celebration including our annual Homecoming Parade before our football game against Cape Henlopen as well as Rider Pride Day the following day.

    Finally, I also want to personally welcome the more than 8000 students who are now enrolled in our schools and walking through our doors, making the Caesar Rodney the largest school district in Kent County.
