Principal's Message

Friday, July 31, 2020

Greetings from Bernabi where August is on the horizon!  For educators, August traditionally feels like the longest Sunday of the year as we finalize our plans for the fall and wait with anticipation for our students to return.  This year has a slightly different feel, though, as I know we all share a great deal of anticipation coupled with a dose of curiosity and a touch of nervousness.  There is no question that this fall will look and feel different, for students, for staff and for families.  As you read in Mr. Milgate’s update earlier today, Spencerport’s plan for opening schools will utilize a hybrid model where students will attend school in person two days a week (either Monday/Thursday or Tuesday/Friday) and receive remote-based learning the other three days of the week.  Recognizing that each family has a different set of circumstances, families are also able to elect a 100% remote learning program.  With that, I am writing to urge each of you to read Mr. Milgate’s e mail update thoroughly and complete the Enrollment Intent Form no later than Thursday, August 6 as this will help support our ability to balance classrooms and prepare for the start of school.  If you did not receive Mr. Milgate’s update, please check our website for the message here.

While we wait for September to arrive, I hope that August continues to offer students and families an opportunity to relax and recharge.  That said, many families have asked how they can support their children in transitioning back to “school mode” after several months away from the building.  As I mentioned in my June communications, the district has assembled some optional summer learning activities and resources for our elementary students. They will be available on our K-5 Summer Learning webpage on the District website, starting on August 3. You can access the K-5 Summer Learning page at: https://www.spencerportschools.org/district/instruction/k-5_summer_learning. Summer reading suggestions are also included. I hope that your family finds the resources useful and fun in preparing for September! 

Lastly, I want my community to know that I continue to press Lifetouch and advocate for your yearbook orders, but unfortunately, we have still not received them.  In my last update, I provided contact information for a regional Lifetouch representative.  After speaking with our direct/local Lifetouch rep yesterday, I am providing her contact information here.  If you have any questions or concerns about yearbooks, please direct them to Sherry Hogan at sherry.hogan@lifetouch.com or at 585-249-7660, press 6 for your sales rep then press 1 for Sherry Hogan.

Wishing everyone my best as we all use the next few days and weeks to prepare for the fall.

Sincerely,

 

David Caiazza
