Principal's Message

Friday, April 3, 2020

Greetings from my home in Brockport, where I continue to work from home like so many of you. While I know you have e-mails flooding your inbox, I did want to stay connected through this way, and offer a bit of a “one-stop summary” of all that is happening right now.

By now, you should have received an update from our district that outlines our instructional plan moving forward, based on both our current circumstances and the state’s executive order to continue to provide learning experiences for our students over what would have been April break. Your next move as a parent is to visit the K-5 At-Home Learning page on our district website to access the weekly calendars for your child’s grade level. Your child’s homeroom teacher will be in touch to ensure you have and understand everything you need.  While you are on our district website, I also encourage you to visit our library resource page for access to a variety of digital texts for both independent reading and read aloud. SORA is a particularly wonderful resource.  https://libguides.monroe2boces.org/bernabilibrary 

Sending thanks to those of you who have found time to access and acknowledge your child’s report card through our new digital process within IC Backpack. I ran a report that allowed me to see how successful families have been, and learned that, while most have accessed their children’s report cards, not as many have “acknowledged” them, which is the process that replaces signing and returning paper report cards.  Remember, you can access the Parent Portal in Infinite Campus by using this link.  If you need a reminder on how to navigate to the report card in Infinite Campus, please click here, and if you have any questions about accessing Infinite Campus and/or viewing and acknowledging your child’s report card, please use the resource here or contact Julie Gilliard at 349-5409 or by e-mail at jgilliard@spencerportschools.org

Please also remember that as this time away extends, our district is taking part in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s School Closure Meal Program, which provides free meals to students during school closure. Stop by Cosgrove, Munn or Taylor weekdays between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. (including next week) for grab-and-go lunch and the next day’s breakfast—completely free of charge. In addition, families impacted financially by the COVID-19 situation may also participate in the #SpencerportTogether dinner subsidy initiative. This program offers meals at reduced prices to those who need it, while generating at least some revenue for local businesses. This is a subsidy, not a pre-order or place-an-order system. If you have not been financially impacted but would like to support local restaurants, please place full-price take-out orders with them directly or donate to the subsidy program using this link, To participate in the subsidy, please visit our webpage for more information .

That’s all for now, but I want you to know that I have enjoyed every opportunity to connect with you and your children during this time, and want to continue to make myself available. If your kiddo(s) want to connect, have them send me an e-mail and I will follow up with a call, FaceTime or Zoom!  

Sending my best now and always,

David Caiazza
