Parent/Guardian Update 10-15-21

 

I hope each of you and your families are well and that you have had a great week.  We are finishing up a great week at the high school.  Our RANGERS continue to do a wonderful job transitioning back into the routine of a “normal” school schedule while following all of our COVID mitigation strategies.  So very proud of each of them.  Just a few updates below:

 

All Students-Digital Equity Survey:

This school year, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) is requiring school districts to survey their families to determine the type of digital resources students have available to them.  This survey is known as the Digital Equity Survey.  Collecting this information will assist NYSED in creating an accurate picture of digital equity for each individual student across the state of New York and develop a better-informed understanding of students’ access to the internet and computer devices. For more information on Digital Equity, please click HERE. Spencerport will plan to administer this brief survey via Infinite Campus starting on Friday, October 29, 2021 and more information will follow.

All Students: 5 Week Progress Reports:  These are now available for each student in Infinite Campus Backpack.  Please make sure to review these with your son or daughter and if you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to reach out to their teacher, counselor, or assistant principal.

 

All Students--Red Ribbon Week:  Any questions at all about Red Ribbon week please reach out to Kate Zobkiw  (kzobkiw@spencerportschools.org).

All Students--COVID Related Topics:

Lunch Room Sign in:  We have been able to develop a sign in process for our lunch rooms where students scan a QR code on their phone that is specific to the table they are sitting at.  The program then creates a seating chart for the entire lunch room during that period.  That is all the QR code does…much like you, as adults may have used QR codes to sign in conferences etc. (we just used this with our staff during our conference day last Friday).  This does not collect any personal information from the student or their electronic devices other than their name and is not shared with anyone.  The company we are trialing this with is Ed Law 2 D compliant (meaning all student information that is collected, which is just the name of the student, is protected securely, and cannot be shared with anyone).  The purpose is to assist us in identifying close contacts (because students are unmasked during lunch) if we are ever in a situation where the health department asks for that information.  Students are at least 6 feet apart in lunches but if for whatever reason this does not happen on a certain day this would help to avoid unnecessarily quarantining any students (and is simply another layer in our COVID mitigation strategy).  If you are uncomfortable with this for any reason, your child DOES NOT have to use the QR code.  They can simply decline to do this.  Any questions at all about this please reach out to Amy Sullivan (asullivan@spencerportschools.org).

 

The district no longer distributes a weekly COVID-19 update, but all of the information is available using the link below:

We continue to have our “COVID HS Student Task Force” every Monday.  I sent out an invite to each grade level via Schoology today.  Please encourage your son or daughter to attend if they have ideas, concerns, feedback, etc. related to our work on COVID mitigation strategies.  

 

All Students: Student Pictures Retakes/IDs: Thursday, October 28th is our new picture retake day. Please note the date for our student picture retakes has changed!!!  Students interested in having a retake done (or if they missed the initial school picture day) must stop down to room 324 at some point during the day to get their pictures taken (we will make announcements about this as well). Students can also pick up a handout with directions on how to order prints from this session at that time. 

 

If you have already ordered prints, or would like to order prints, Lifetouch will be sending us your prints and/or a proof sheet for you (there is a sample one attached) that we will distribute to students as soon as they arrive. We are unable to give you a delivery date at this time. In addition, student ID’s are on the way…I have had a few questions regarding those.  The company had to reprint them after finding they had made a mistake so they should be in the next few weeks at the longest.   Please contact Amy Sullivan, 11th grade AP, if you have any questions related to student pictures and she would be happy to assist you. asullivan@spencerportschools.org

Those are my updates for the week.  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend (I am looking forward to the start of some nice fall weather tomorrow!!)  As always, any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to me directly.

All the best.   Sean
