Message from the Superintendent - In Case You Missed It

This section is reproduced from Friday's communication from the Superintendent

Brockport families,

Thank you partnering with us to make our first week of school successful! This is the first time in over a year and a half that our students have had the opportunity to return to full-time, in person learning, and the positive energy from our students and staff was prevalent throughout our entire District!

As I have stated, one of our goals this year is to have a more typical, uninterrupted school year, and I am happy to inform you of another step in achieving our goal. One of my favorite times of our school year is back - Homecoming.

Next week, students and teachers alike can show their Brockport pride and come together to celebrate our amazing BCSD community. Events are scheduled throughout the week, leading up to the big game Friday night! Students at all schools will celebrate homecoming all week long, showing their school pride during spirit week. The daily themes this year are:

  • · Monday: Throwback Day- pick a decade
  • · Tuesday: PJ Day
  • · Wednesday: Tie Dye Day
  • · Thursday: Tourist Day
  • · Friday: Brockport Blue

Girls of the Gridiron also returns for homecoming this year! The event will take place Wednesday, September 15 at 7 p.m. at the Dahn Walrath Stadium. Tickets are $3 per person, or a donation of three canned food items for the Brockport and Hamlin Food Shelf. Friday evening, campus will be buzzing, as the community is invited to our Homecoming Festival (including a Food Truck Rodeo), Parade and the Homecoming Football Game. The festival will take place in the front loop of the high school and will run from 5-7 p.m. and the parade will make its way throughout campus, beginning at 5:15 p.m. After the festival, you can come cheer on the Blue Devils as they take on Greece Arcadia at 7 p.m. at the Dahn Walrath Stadium! Additional Homecoming details can be found at

Brockport Central is excited to team up with FoodLink again to host a Pop-up Food Pantry at the Brockport High School Cafeteria on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 from 4:30-6 p.m. Due to COVID restrictions, this event will be a drive-up food pantry. Individuals will not enter BHS. Households will be given boxes of pre-selected food items. If you have questions, donations or would like to volunteer, please email

I look forward to our continued success in realizing a more typical, uninterrupted school year.

I also wish you an enjoyable weekend and the ability to recharge for another great week!

Superintendent Sean Bruno

Parent Pick-Up

Our student pick up at the end of the day as been working very well. There are a few hints that may help you with navigation when you arrive on campus:

  • We take the first 14 cars in the Barclay lot, the rest will stage across the street at our TTC facility.
  • Cars entering the TTC lot should use the middle entrance until the line of vehicles approaches that entrance.
  • Once the middle entrance has cars lined up to it, you should proceed to the TTC entrance closest to the baseball fields.
  • So far we have been able to maintain one line of cars, but as our daily pick up numbers increase, we will have to begin a second line.

It is extremely helpful to know that you will be picking up at the end of the day. While we can add students from the lot, there is a chance that students may not see a late addition from the classroom. If you have already written a note for the year, you are all set. If you need to pick up at the end of the day and it has not already been communicated, you may call us or email us at the contacts listed on this bulletin. Please know that the bus garage does not notify the schools if you cancel a bus for the day, they count on you to notify the school as well.

Daily Health Screening

Please remember to complete a daily health screening for your student(s) each school day before 8:30 am. The daily health screening should arrive to your preferred email each morning that school is in session. If you have not received the email, or you are experiencing technical difficulties, please reach out to us and we would be happy to assist.

We discovered that there was a miscommunication with Qualtrex and our internal systems that was fixed by Tuesday morning. Once the miscommunication was rectified, the number of students coming to our health station for a temperature check dropped drastically.

If you do have any questions about our COVID protocols, you may reach out to either myself or the school nurse, Jeanmary Day. Please recognize that the buildings are following the guidance from the Monroe County Department of Health. You may see different information from CDC or form other publications online, but we do stay up to date with regard to the MCDOH guidelines.
