Parent Guardian Update



Good Afternoon,

This is Sean McCabe, the principal of Spencerport High School.  I hope each of you have had a great week.  Just a few updates for next week.  As always, any questions or comments please feel free to reach out to me directly.

New Tip Line Information: The following information has been highlighted by the district in a number of other publications, but I wanted to make sure as many parents/guardians as possible were aware of this new Safe School Helpline.

This service offers additional methods for students, parents, staff and community to:

  • anonymously report concerning behaviors or issues via phone, text or online

    o   Call: 1-800-4-1-VOICE (1-800-418-6423), ext. 359

    o   Text: "TIPS" to 614-426-0240

    o   Online:

  • contact the helpline with 24/7 coverage
  • connect students with immediate support with the ability to talk to a licensed social worker (by selecting that option)

 The Safe School Helpline is well established nationwide, and as we vetted this service, we found that it is being used by the majority of districts in our area.

This information can be found on the district’s homepage as well. 


All Students: Academic Supports:  In addition to Academic Workshop (2:50-3:50 M-Th), Activity Period (2:20-2:50) and Advisement, we also have Peer Tutors available to support our students.  Below are our posters for both Academic Workshop and Peer Tutoring with all of the necessary information to be able to access them.   If you have any questions at all about these academic supports, please contact Amy Sullivan at [email protected] or 349-5231.




All Students-New Grading Policy:   My sincerest apologies for cancelling our parent forum on Tuesday.  I was very sick and I felt it was important that I was at the meeting.   We will have our rescheduled parent forum on Wednesday, February 8th at 6:00 p.m. in rooms 135/136.  I think this is a good date to meet as report cards for 2nd quarter will be available in Infinite Campus on Friday, February 3rd so when we break into smaller groups, we can answer specific questions or concerns that parents might have.   We will also be providing the Board of Education an update at their next meeting on Tuesday, 1/24. We have been working hard to address the concerns and ideas that have been shared with us.  In the meanwhile, please feel free to reach out to me directly.  I have had a few parents reach contact me and we have been able to address the concerns or questions that were brought up.  Please note that any parent in the district is invited to attend these meetings.  If you have friends or neighbors with children at Cosgrove or one of the elementary schools and they are interested in attending please make sure to invite them!

9-12 Grade Students:  Winter Pep Assembly: This has been rescheduled to Friday, 1/27.  This is our ½ day so we will have the full Pep Assembly experience the last part of our morning. 


Evening of Jazz: On Saturday, February 4th, the Spencerport Jazz Ensemble will be hosting our 23rd annual “An Evening of Jazz” in the West Café.  This is a major fundraiser for our students and will feature local student Jazz Bands including Cosgrove and High School Jazz Bands, The Brockport Community Big Band, and special guest artist, trumpeter Herb Smith (Herb Smith — ROCmusic).




All Students/Parents: Door Dash, Grub Hub, etc.: Please refrain from ordering food for your child through any of these services.  If there is an issue with your child not having food for lunch, please just reach out to my office and we will take care of it immediately.  If food is delivered to our greeters by one of these services, we will not give it to the students until the end of the day (it will be refrigerated).  If you are dropping off a traditional lunch from home that is absolutely fine (this is not nearly as exciting to our students thus it doesn’t occur anywhere near as frequently as Door Dash  lol). 


I hope each of you have a wonderful weekend.  

All the best. Sean
