Parent Guardian Summer Update # 3

8-19-22

Good Afternoon:

This is Sean McCabe, the principal of Spencerport High School. I hope each of you and your families are well.  This is our “big update” for the summer that contains information about the first few days of school and other events that will be happening during the first few months of the school year.  There is a lot of information contained in this update INCLUDING our 2nd video on equitable grading.  Please remember that next Monday (8/22), we will be having an informational meeting for parents and students on the grading policy in the PAC starting at 6 PM.

9th Grade Orientation:  Orientation for the Class of 2026, will be held on Thursday, September 1st, from 8 AM to approximately 12 PM at the high school.  We are very excited to be able to welcome the Class of 2026 to the high school!! Any questions at all please reach out to me.

Returning Upperclassmen:  Schedules for our returning students will be available online via Infinite Campus on 9/1 at 12 PM (9th graders will receive this at 8 AM on 9/1).  Our counselors are back full time starting the week of 8/29.  Please feel free to reach out to them via email and they will get back to you. If there is a pressing concern prior to this date, please reach out directly to me or one of the assistant principals.

Parking Permits: Students will be able to apply for their parking permits on Monday, August 15th through Thursday, August 18th, from 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and Monday, August 22nd through Thursday, August 25th, from 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. in the Main Office.  Please follow this link: Student Parking - Spencerport High School (spencerportschools.org)  for more information on the documentation needed to receive a parking permit as well a student expectations for receiving and keeping their parking pass.  Students will be required to pay a $10 deposit for their parking permit which will be returned at the end of the year when they turn in their “tag.”

Class of 2023 Painting of Parking Spots: To kick off the 2022-2023 school year, Seniors will be able to customize their parking spots. This will be your parking spot for the duration of the school year during school hours (7:00 am-3:00 pm). Because it is your spot, no one else can park there…even with your permission. People who violate this policy may receive consequences. Not driving or not driving yet? No problem, you can still participate by painting a Spencerport-themed spot for yourself later or for general parking.

1. Design forms must be completed and submitted for approval in the Class of 2023 Schoology course by August 25th. Once approved, you are committed to that design. Painting will take place on August 27th from 8am -1pm and August 29th from 3pm -8pm. You will be asked to pick one of those dates when you submit your design.

2. Guidelines for your sketch: Your design must be within the guidelines of Spencerport’s Code of Conduct, you can use your name, jersey number, instrument you play, reflect your favorite teams, your hobbies, show your school spirit, etc. Parking spots should be non-political messages and paintings that unify and celebrate being a Spencerport Senior while reflecting who you are as a person.

3. There will be a $10 painting fee paid in cash or check (payable to Spencerport Class of 2023) due when you arrive to paint.

4. There will be a refundable $50 deposit fee paid in cash due when you arrive to paint. The deposit will be returned to you at the end of the year, once you have painted over your parking spot.

School Supplies:  School supplies can be found on the high school website listed by department by using the following link:

Supply Lists - Spencerport High School (spencerportschools.org)

We have tried to limit the supplies that students (parents/guardians) need to purchase.  If there are any issues or questions don’t hesitate to reach out to me and I would be happy to help.

Senior Pictures: Information about senior pictures has been posted in the Schoology page for the Class of 2023.  In addition, you can follow this link to the high school web site that provides an overview of senior pictures as well:

First Day of School-Wednesday, September 7, 2022:

 Start Time: First block begins at 7:25.  Students may be dropped off at the main entrance starting at 6:45 a.m.  Students using our busses typically enter the school building by 7:03.  Students will be entering the building thru the “Blue Arches” in the back of the building (they are really triangles but we call them arches for some reason lol).  Breakfast will be open in the West Cafeteria.

First Class: Students will report to their 1st block for A day.  Students will receive their agendas/planners during the 1st block.   Please reinforce with your child that there will be staff throughout the hallways to ensure they get to where they need to be throughout the first week of school.  They do not need to be nervous about getting lost.

End of the Instructional Day: School ends at 2:10.  Busses depart at 2:20.  Parents may pick up their students in the front loop OR the staff parking lot nearest to Gillett road.  Please note that students can wait in the front loop a few minutes before being picked up (especially in nice weather).  If you plan to pick up your son or daughter at 2:20 instead of 2:10 you will miss the great majority of the traffic.  I would strongly suggest this approach when possible.  Please drive carefully and be patient while picking up your child if you do plan on picking up right at 2:10 as traffic does back up.   

Activity Period: Activity period runs from 2:20-2:50. Students can use this time to meet with teachers for extra help.  If students do stay after school, they are either required to be with a teacher or they can be in sports study hall in the West Cafeteria if they are an athlete.  Late busses are provided for students at 3:00 but they must receive a late bus pass from the teacher they are staying with.  Students will ride the Cosgrove busses home.

Student Drop Off and Pick Up: The front loop is very busy for drop off and pick up.   I would ask that if you are dropping off or picking you pull up as far as possible in the front loop before letting your child out of the car.  Bob “the security guard” will be in the front loop in the AM.  Please follow Bob’s request to pull up as far as possible (he will be waving you forward).  Pulling as far forward as possible when you are at the front of the line helps tremendously in speeding up drop off for everyone.  Please do not double park your car to let your child out of the car (or to pick up).  This is dangerous and could cause a serious accident.    

Senior Project: If you have a 12th grade student, one of their graduation requirements is the successful completion of the Senior Project.  This will be Mr. David DeMarte’s 2nd year as our Senior Project Advisor.  He has been in contact with our seniors thru Schoology.  During the first week of school we will be meeting with the senior class “live” to go over expectations for the project.  Please know that we are very flexible and supportive with students as they complete this capstone project.   The purpose of this project is to allow students to demonstrate the wide variety of skills they have learned over the past 13 years about a topic they are passionate about.  In many cases, this will involve giving back to our community in one way or another.  I have had many graduates of SHS come back and say to me that it was a great experience for them and they were glad they did it.  So again, more to come on this but please know senior parents, this should not be something students are stressed about.

Open House 2022: Open House will be held this year on Thursday, September 22nd starting at 6 PM in the PAC. 

Parent Teacher Conferences: During Open House the on-line sign up process for Parent Teacher conferences will be reviewed and opened up.  First semester conferences will be held on Monday, November 21st from 3-6 PM.  Parents will have the option to meet in person or to conduct a “zoom” meeting. 

Homecoming 2022: Homecoming will be the week of 9/26-10/1.  Over the summer members of Student Government have been working to choose the themes for homecoming.  Please note that our very popular Powderpuff game will be Friday, 9/30 and we will have a dance for students on Saturday, 10/1 in the evening (this is an informal/casual dance...no need to spend money on expensive dresses or suits).  Our Student Government met this week and below are the themes for the week:

 Monday - America Monday

Tuesday - BBQ dads vs. Soccer moms (I am not really sure what this is but I look forward to the student’s creativity!)

Wednesday - Music genres

Thursday - Dynamic duos

Friday - Fan Friday (gold, blue, white and grey day)

Student Pictures: Student pictures will be taken the first four days of school: Sept 7, 8, 9, and 12th during PE classes.  The makeup day for student pictures will be October 24th

Building Wide Assessment/Grading Policy:  Our 2nd video on grading is included with this update:

Our parent information night is Monday, 8/22 at 6 PM in the PAC.  All are welcome!

As always, thank you for all of your support of our students and staff. I will send out one final update before the start of the school year on Friday, 9/2. Again, never hesitate to reach out to me.  Have a great weekend.  All the best. Sean
