Grades during Remote Learning

Hello Academy Community,

Report cards for the 5th marking period went live on Pupil Path on Thursday, 5/7 at 10am.

Parents and students should review Pupil Path for any undone assignments.  Teachers are not recording missing assignments with zeros.  Missing assignments will appear in the ungraded category on Pupil Path.  Therefore, the average on Pupil Path reflects just the work that has been done.  Missing assignments will have an impact on a student’s ability to successfully complete a course.  Students are encouraged to review their classwork on Google Classroom to complete any missing assignments.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your teacher, any of the assistant principals, or your guidance counselors.

Good luck during the 6th marking period,

Mr. Solkoff

NY State of Heath Letter to Families

Message from Principal Bassell (March 23, 2020)

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,
Thank you for your amazing work in coming together to join our on-line learning community.  As you know, this came about on very short notice, but you were not daunted.  You responded to emails and calls from your teachers and our support staff, and by this morning, almost everyone was on-line in the appropriate classes.  We have endeavored to create a productive schedule which mirrors the regular school day, although with shorter periods.  From all that I have heard and seen today, the discussions were lively, everyone was cooperative, and the glitches were minimal, considering how quickly this needed to be done.  We will work together to minimize the glitches, we will adjust as necessary, and we will make our program the best it possible can be.
Please remember to sign into each class every day, and participate to your fullest. And, reach out to your teachers as you need to. We are all here to help you succeed.
Please be assured that Academy will keep everyone posted as things evolve and change.  We are all in this together.  Please take care of yourselves and stay healthy!
Bill Bassell
