The Spencer Scoop

Spencer Elementary August 14 2020

News From the Office

Hello Families,

Today is the deadline to select Brighton Virtual Academy (BVA).

If interested, please click HERE.

If you haven't heard, our official start date has moved to Tuesday, September 8, 2020. September 8 - 11 will be half days. (The school day times will be announced soon)

The week of September 14th, we will begin full days with our 2-1-2 model, which means,

Monday and Tuesday your child will attend school at Spencer (2 Days)

Wednesday will be an online learning day. Spencer will be closed for deep cleaning (1 Day)

Thursday and Friday will be back to Spencer (2 Days)

If our region moves into phase 3, or need to close school due to COVID-19, we will switch to online learning with your child's classroom teacher continuing to teach lessons.

If our region moves to phase 3 or Spencer closes, this will not affect students attending BVA. You will continue as normal.

Also new, as approved by Brighton's Board of Education, all students (JK-4th Grade) will be required to wear a face-covering.

Soon, we will share with you more things in detail such as arrival/dismissal procedures, what lunch and recess look like, along with schedules, times, and your child's teacher.

In the meantime, enjoy the weekend and let us know how we can help you,

Bill Renner

Principal, Spencer Elementary

Tech Survey - Do You Have What You Need?

We are assessing the availability of personal student devices that they could utilize at school for in-person instruction throughout the year. Thank you for taking the time to fill out this short 5 question survey. You can find it HERE

Did You Update Your Child's Info?

All families need to go into Parent Connect and register for the upcoming school year. Last year the process of registration and re-enrollment shifted to online. If you have a student returning to Brighton Area Schools, you need to go to Parent Connect and complete the back to school information called, re-enrollment. This is for all students coming back to Brighton Area Schools; this is not for the BVA.
