2021-22 COVID Updates

Friday, July 30, 2021

Good afternoon Brockport Families,

In an effort to keep you informed, I will send regular updates throughout the weeks leading up to our return to school. Updates will also be posted on our website and on social media.

Summer Focus 2021:

Our Summer 2021 Focus and Graduation/Awards Section will be delivered to District residents within the Suburban News this weekend. An electronic copy is available to view. We hope you enjoy our year-end highlights! https://bcs1.org/news/what_s_new/summer_2021_focus_and_awards

2021-22 District Calendar:

Our 2021-22 District Calendar and Parent Guide will be mailed to District families in mid-August. This is a valuable resource with important school information, dates and contact numbers. While we have planned for many of our traditional events, activities may need to be adjusted throughout the year. I encourage you to regularly check our District Calendar on the BCSD website for updates as well as our social media accounts.

Campus Portal:

All parents/guardians are encouraged to sign up for our Infinite Campus Portal. This portal provides access to student grades, attendance, accounts, message center and so much more. Parents/guardians of students PreK-12 can set up an account by requesting an activation key and following the instructions provided: https://brockportny.infinitecampus.org/campus/portal/parents/brockport.jsp

Free Meal Program:

All students enrolled in BCSD will continue to receive free breakfast and lunch through the USDA National School Lunch Program for the 2021-22 school year. It is important that families who qualify complete the free and reduced lunch program application. In addition to meals, this program may reduce or eliminate fees for AP/IB exams and college applications, it may allow students/families to become eligible for P-EBT cards, receive federal support due the pandemic and more. The application will be included with the District Calendar mailing and can be found on the District’s Food Service Website:  https://bcs1.org/departments___services/food_services/free_and_reduced_lunches

Kindergarten School Bus Training:

Brockport’s annual Kindergarten School Bus Training will be held August 17-19. Families with children entering kindergarten in the fall are welcome to attend. Sessions are limited and registration is required. Reserve your space by August 15.

Return to School and Masking:

September 2 will be our first day of school for our K-12 students. PreK will start on September 9. Information regarding orientation and Meet & Greet dates have been shared and are listed on our online District Calendar. 

At this time, we are planning for a full return to in-person learning for the fall. We are aware that the CDC has recommended increased masking in schools for the upcoming year. Currently, we have not received any new guidance or protocols from the NYS Department of Health or Governor Cuomo. Final decisions for our District have not been made. We will keep you updated as new information becomes available. 

I hope all of you are enjoying your summer vacation, and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Best, 
Superintendent Sean Bruno
