Good evening Cosgrove families,

 

This message contains important information regarding student locker clean out that will occur next week. The district is requesting students (6-8 with a parent/guardian) to collect their personal belongings from school while adhering to the following schedule:

 

• Tuesday, May 26, 2020: Students with the last names A-F 

• Wednesday, May 27, 2020: Students with the last names G-M 

• Thursday, May 28, 2020: Students with the last names N-R 

• Friday, May 29, 2020: Students with the last names S-Z 

Pick up times are 8am-11am and 12:30pm–3pm

As always we will be flexible in working with parents and students.  If for some reason there is an issue with your assigned day/time for locker cleanout please reach out to me directly (jcentola@spencerportschools.org) and we will come up with an alternate date.

Here are the procedures for item retrieval from Cosgrove:

  • Students/parents will enter the school through the main entrance (door #1).
  • Students will be required to sign in at the main entrance with an administrator.  One parent/guardian will be allowed to enter with the student.  Students will exit the building through the doors near the nurses office (door #26), which empties into the front loop.
  • Anyone entering the building will be required to state they are not suffering from symptoms of COVID-19 when they are logged in. If you have any of the following symptoms without a known cause please do not enter the building: cough, shortness of breath / difficulty breathing, fever, upset stomach or diarrhea, chills, muscle pain / joint aches, headache, sore throat, new loss of smell / taste. If this is the case just let us know and we will schedule another time to clean out the locker.
  • Everyone will be required to wear a mask when in the building.  Please bring your own.  Students will not be allowed to socialize and must move with a purpose from one location to the next.  Social distancing expectations will be enforced.
  • Students will be allowed to go to their personal locker, gym locker, and sports locker to retrieve their items.  Students will also be permitted to go to other classrooms where they may have left materials/projects.
  • Middle school staff will be located throughout the building to ensure social distancing is being followed and to help students retrieve items from classrooms if necessary.
  • Bathrooms will NOT be available.
  • Only a certain number of students will be allowed in the building at one time.  This will be monitored by staff.  Please be prepared to have to wait outside the building (social distancing) until you are allowed to enter.
  • Students will not be returning textbooks/laptops.  They should not bring anything into school with them other than a bag to empty their lockers.  If students have textbooks in their lockers there will be tables for them to leave these on in each hallway.

 

Academic awards night: Our ceremony that was scheduled for June 8th has been cancelled. Our faculty will still be nominating students for various awards this year. We will contact families directly if your child is chosen for an award and mail certificates in late June.

 

8th grade moving up car parade: We will have an 8th grade moving up car parade this year on Thursday, June 4th. Cars will line up at 6pm and the parade will begin at 6:30pm. More details to follow next week.

 

Breakfast, Lunch and #Spencerport Together (Dinners): Please note that information concerning these programs can be found on the main page of the district web site.  These programs have gone incredibly well and we greatly appreciate all of the community support to make these happen!

 

Edgar Renee Concert: For parents who paid for this concert by check, those checks have not been cashed and will be voided. If you paid by cash, you will be receiving a refund check in the mail from the district in the next couple of weeks.

 

Please continue to reference spencerportschools.org for the latest and most up to date information regarding the District’s response to the COVID-19 situation. I truly hope that you and your family are doing well during these times. While education plays an important role in the lives of our students and families, your health and wellbeing continues to be my primary concern. Thank you for your continued support.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jim Centola

Cosgrove Principal
