Senior Academy Announcements

October 21, 2020

Good Morning Senior Academy!

HS PARENTS/GUARDIANS:

College Application Week Information:  College Application Week has been extended to two weeks this year: October 19 - 30th, 2020, in which many NC colleges and universities waive their application fees. In efforts to take advantage of this opportunity, we will have a Zoom Free Day for seniors Thursday, October 22nd. Google form to sign up for an appointment for the week of Oct 19: 

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdr14OLFxkDeIkJ5oNuUhudoZwCDMe5zm408hL9F5bOAugTew/viewform  Please email Ms. Naftel or myself if you have any questions.

RE-ENROLLMENT 2021 – 2022:

It is hard to believe it is almost Re-enrollment time.  The 2021 - 2022 school year's re-enrollment begins November 9 at 8:00 am and ends November 23 at noon.  Please do not wait until the deadline to start.  

Everyone should already have a Parent Portal set up in PowerSchool.  This is the only way to get into the PowerSchool Re-enrollment System.  The Re-enrollment can only be completed through PowerSchool and only if you have a Parent Portal (username and password).  Please contact Mrs. Campbell TODAY if you cannot access the PowerSchool Parent Portal (kcampbell@eastwakeacademy.org). 

Again, the deadline for Re-enrollment is November 23 at noon. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS. If you do not complete the re-enrollment by the deadline, you will have to apply in January for the Lottery.  If you know you will not be returning, please let Kim Campbell know as soon as possible (kcampbell@eastwakeacademy.org).

The re-enrollment Portal will not open until November 9.

Records Request for Students:  We understand that some families will explore other educational opportunities for their child, and we support that right. Please let us know what you may need for your exploration, and we will help. But be advised: (By Law) if East Wake Academy receives a formal record request from another school for your child, that child will be withdrawn from East Wake Academy for the following school year (2021 - 2022). East Wake Academy's receipt of the request is final and out of our hands legally. Please be in contact with Mrs. Campbell so she can help you. Mrs. Campbell can be reached at kcampbell@eastwakeacademy.org


STUDENTS STAY UPDATED:

Drivers Eligibility Form: Students should have completed the Drivers Education class and driving portion in order to receive a Drivers Eligibility form. A Parent/Guardian will need to set up an appointment with Mrs. Campbell by email at kcampbell@eastwakeacademy.org to fill out, sign and pick up the student’s Drivers Eligibility Form prior to making an appointment at DMV.

SENIORS:

Senior Shirt Reminder: The Esty shop to order your long-sleeved senior shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, and masks is still open and will remain open until TODAY October 21. If you missed the deadline for your free senior shirt and would like a short-sleeved shirt, you may still purchase one of those, as well. This is a hard deadline, and no shirts will be available to purchase after TODAY October 21, so be sure to order today!
