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.   Our updates for the week are below.  If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please reach out to me directly.

All Parents: As part of our emergency planning each year, the District is required by the state to conduct an early release drill where the students are transported home no earlier than 15 minutes prior than the end of the school day. This early release drill will take place on Friday, May 26th. On that afternoon, buses will depart from each building 15 minutes prior to their normal departure time and bring students home as if on their normal route. The focus of this release is on transportation capacity and students can exit the building in a normal environment without additional emergency protocols within the building.

11th and 12th Grade Parents: With prom and graduation season approaching, we have planned two unique events for juniors and seniors this year to be educated on the dangers of driving under the influence or driving while distracted.

On Thursday, May 4th, we will be hosting the Arrive Alive Event for the junior class.  This is a simulation event that will allow students to virtually experience driving under the influence or distracted driving.  Students will be assigned a specific 40-minute time block throughout the day to attend the event and will receive a pass via Schoology to attend. This event is not mandatory and students may opt not to participate, if they so choose, at any time.

If you would like more information on the event itself, please visit the company website,

On Wednesday, May 31st at 7:30 am, the senior class will be invited to attend our annual DWI Assembly. This community event simulates an accident from students driving under the influence. We partner with Ogden Police Department, Spencerport Fire Department, Gates Ambulance and Walker Brothers Funeral Home for the assembly. This event will take place in the front loop of the high school building and should take approximately 30 minutes.

If you have any questions about either of these events contact our district Drug and Alcohol Counselor, Kate Zobkiw at 585.349.5245.


Students Taking AP Exams: Below is a link to an overview of our upcoming AP exams (they start on Monday 😊).  This information has been shared with students but I would HIGHLY encourage every parent/guardian of a child taking an AP exam to take a moment to read thru this and to watch the video that was created to provide a quick and easy overview of the AP exam process for students and parents:

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.



Graduation Information: Below is a link to our annual graduation information letter that contains a timeline of senior events.  Please read thru this carefully and if you have any questions about anything related to graduation, please reach out to our 10th grade Assistant Principal,  Erin Shaw at 349-5229 or [email protected] .


Ranger Proud:  Congratulations to our music students on a very successful trip to Philadelphia last week!  Our Rangers won a number of awards for their efforts.  I was fortunate enough to be with them on the trip and could not have been prouder of all of them not only for their musical prowess but for how they represented the high school as young adults!



Congratulations to Lorenzo Tantalo and Owen Silsbee who represented Spencerport High School at the RIT High School Mathematics Competition.  They both earned Honorable Mention accolades for their efforts!  Well done!


Congratulations to our Robotics Team (3015) on an incredible season.  They finished 3-0 in regional competition and finished their season at the world championships in Houston.  While they didn’t win a world championship, they had a season for the record books…and once again…represented our community with class and grace.  


Thank you to members of Student Government for their efforts to organize and run the Red Cross Blood Drive today!
