Barclay Bulletin

Getting Ready for School Edition

What to Expect?

Happy August! Time continues to fly and we are in the process of finalizing our plans for the upcoming school year. Each year brings on new challenges and expectations and this year will surely be unique. I use the Barclay Bulletin as my primary form of communication with families. You will receive it via email through our School Messenger system, or it can be found on the Barclay School website under the School Information tab.

This will be my eighth year as Principal at Barclay, and my twenty fifth year in education. I have worked as a Special Education Teacher at Monroe #1 BOCES, an Assistant Principal in Lyndonville, and an Assistant Principal at Barclay before my appointment to this role.

COVID caused disruption to our traditional educational practices and we hope that we will return to a more typical experience during the 21-22 school year. We have added additional sections to the elementary buildings to allow for smaller class sizes. I will update families on how those additional sections will impact the school day in my next bulletin.

Placement letters will be in the mail on Friday, so you can expect the letters to begin arriving over the weekend, or the beginning of next week. If you have questions or concerns regarding placement, please reach out to me directly at 637-1840 or

Pick-Up Pals

You will find your pick-up pals cards in the placement letters again this year. We are trying to solidify our dismissal procedures for the upcoming school year, but please keep the pick-up pals cards even if you do not think you are going to pick your child up from school this year. When you (or your designee) arrives at school at the end of the day, they will show the pick-up pal card to our building staff to indicate that they have permission to take that student from the building. You should also fill out the student release forms with the approved individuals who can take a child from the building in the event the card is not available. Families who lose their pick-up pal cards should notify the school office at to have new cards issued. A new color will be provided and the old card will no longer work in our system. More information on the arrival and dismissal procedures and times will come in the next Barclay Bulletin.

Food Service Updates

All students in the Brockport Central School District will continue to be eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch during the 2021-22 school year. To be considered a free breakfast or lunch, three meal components must be selected, with one being a fruit or vegetable.

Students in the serving line will pull up their lunch account by scanning their ID card, or entering in their student ID number on the pin pad that is covered in sterilizing tape.

Food Service is also offering side items and snacks that are outside the free meal that students can purchase during breakfast and lunch, using money on their account or cash.

Free and Reduced Priced Meal Applications are available online, under Food Service, Free and Reduced Lunches or in your school’s main office, or for more information please click on the link below.
