Principal's Message


July 30, 2021 

Hello, Canal View Families! 

This summer is flying by, and we are hard at work preparing for the 2021-2022 school year. While there will be continued COVID-impact, I am so glad that all students will be in the building five days a week beginning on Wednesday, September 8. I can’t wait to see our returning students and meet our preschoolers, kindergarteners, and new entrants! 

As we approach September, I will be sending important updates regarding safety protocols, arrival and dismissal procedures, and other important information to help the start of the school year run smoothly. These updates will typically come to your inbox on Fridays. Friday messages will come to you regularly throughout the school year. 
As you may already know, local districts, including Spencerport, recently wrote to Governor Cuomo requesting updated guidance for opening schools.  While districts across the state await this guidance, we will continue to work collaboratively with our committees and task forces to ensure we are ready to begin the school year, no matter the circumstances.  Thank you for your patience, understanding and confidence that we will communicate with you once we have more information to share.  Until then, you can access the aforementioned letter to Governor Cuomo here: 

Summer Mailing 

Once the calendar rolls over to August, the biggest question is always about teacher assignments. The Lemcke household knows this excitement well! The flurry of text messages and phone calls to find out which friends are in which classes is certainly an exciting part of the summer. As a principal and as a mother, I know how eager you are to find out this information.  

Our summer mailing will be sent out on Friday, August 20. This yellow envelope will include your child’s teacher assignment as well as important paperwork to be completed and sent back to school. Teachers, related services providers, and our mental health team all worked collaboratively to create balanced classes while considering individual student and group needs.  

Please note that you can visit the Canal View website to access our Teacher Directory and school supply list prior to August 20. Several teachers have changed assignments, and we are happy to welcome some new faces to Canal View as well. Access our website here: 

Finally, I am very happy to tell you that it is our hope to welcome volunteers back this school year. If you are interested in volunteering at Canal View this year, please be sure to contact our Director of Community Programs, Christina Bowerman. She can be reached at 349-5681 or at Please note that all interested individuals will need to engage in a one-time training and orientation prior to volunteering. As specific volunteer opportunities become available, we will be in touch.  

I hope you and your family enjoy the rest of the summer. My family and I will be doing a lot more swimming, biking, and boating as we continue to rejuvenate in preparation for another busy school year ahead. Thank you for your trust and support as September approaches. Together we will make this new school year a wonderful one.
