Principal's Message


September 17, 2021 

Hello, Canal View Families! 

This has been a great first full week of school. Students are learning new routines, making new friends, and adjusting to being back at school full time. Thank you so much to those families who were able to come to Open House last night. There just aren't enough words to say how wonderful it was to see our building (safely!) bustling with students and families. The pride that students felt last night was so great to see. It was certainly an evening filled with joy!

Please see below for important updates: 

Attendance and Absences 
If your child will be absent for the day, please call the Canal View absence line at 349-5751. Please indicate your child’s name and reason for the absence. 

If you need to pick your child up early, you must make these changes by 12:00 pm each day. You can call the same number listed above to make dismissal changes. Messages are monitored all day. Thank you! 

Parent/Guardian Drop Off 
K-5 Families: Thank you for continuing to follow our drop off procedures. We welcome students at the side entrance between 8:45 and 8:55 each morning. As a reminder, please drop off between the cones only. Pull all the way to the first cone or to the car in front of you before having your child(ren) exit your vehicle from the passenger side. As always, if your child requires assistance please park your vehicle in one of our lots and walk your child to the front entrance. Be sure to utilize the crosswalk by the flagpole. 

PreK Families: Thank you for parking and walking your child to the PreK drop off area on the side of the building. If you are using the front lot, please walk across the bus loop by using the crosswalk by the flagpole. This is extremely important for safety reasons. Our buses need to be able to see you and your child clearly. 

Please share this information with any family members that are helping with drop off in the morning. Thank you!

Picture Day 
Picture Day is scheduled for Friday, October 1. Paper order forms were sent home this week, and a digital flier can be found here: Canal View Elementary-CL!X.pdf 

Bivona Parent/Guardian Forum 
This is a reminder that our partners at the Bivona Child Advocacy Center will be facilitating a public forum for Spencerport parents/guardians on Wednesday, October 13, 2021, from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.  This virtual platform will provide parents and guardians an opportunity to learn more about our curriculum and the safety protocols the district has employed on behalf of our students.  Prior to this event, a Zoom link for this forum will be sent out in October.   

Save Around Coupon Books 
Update from our parent association: Orders for the Save Around Coupon book are due next Friday, September 24.  If you choose to keep the book, please remember to send in $25 to purchase the book. If you choose to return the book, please return it by September 24. The CVA appreciates your support in this fundraiser. 

Band, Chorus and Intramurals 
We are so excited to reignite these programs her at Canal View. Band and Chorus information has been sent home for our fourth or fifth grade students. Stay tuned for information on intramurals. We can’t wait to have students enjoying these critical aspects of our school program once again!  

Schoology Access for Parents 
We are pleased to share that Spencerport will be using Schoology again this year.  Parents will be able to access Schoology with a parent access code.  These access codes will be contained in a Schoology letter that has been placed in the Infinite Campus Backpack.   Schoology is a platform where students will be able to receive and submit assignments, receive feedback from teachers, and where parents can follow along with their students' activity throughout the year. Please log in to Infinite Campus and check your oldest student's IC Backpack for the Schoology letter and parent access codes for all students in the household.

Next week is homecoming week at the high school. We’re going to have some fun at Canal View to help celebrate! Next week’s spirit days are as follows: 
Monday, 9/20 – Rangers are Super Cool: Wear your shades and hats!
