A Message from the Superintendent 4/18/2021

Week of April 18, 2021

It was another beautiful weekend in Zeb Town!  We were so excited this past week as we welcomed students back to campus.  Our students genuinely bring the campus to life.  Unfortunately, we did have a COVID 19 exposure that did impact several students. We addressed the situation with the help and support of Wake County DHHS.  We thank the parents involved for their understanding.  This was not what we had expected, but it did happen (no fault of anyone).  In PLAN A, close contact is hard to mitigate.  It has been reported that another student that was in the quarantined group has tested positive - quarantining works in mitigating spread.

We have shared with all families our return-to-learn plans through your HOUSE admins that outlined our procedures.  We will continue to follow CDC / DHHS protocols in our effort to be safe and supportive.  We continue to thank families for doing the right thing in keeping a student home when they are showing symptoms and for contacting Mrs. Dove.  The only way we can continue to battle and move forward is by working together. 

Teacher Appreciation:

As you know, East Wake Academy has an INCREDIBLE staff! We are asking that you help us celebrate them in a big way this year! In preparation for Teacher Appreciation Week (May3-7), we ask families to help by donating gift cards. Our goal is to collect enough gift cards so each EWA staff member would receive at least a gift of $20. If you would like to partner with us to help make this happen, please go to the Sign-Up Genius below and sign up for the card you would like to donate. Donated gift cards can be dropped off at any of the three offices on or before April 28.

Please just put the cards in an envelope and mark them as Teacher Appreciation. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Weatherspoon -  cweatherspoon@eastwakeacademy.org.

Thank you in advance for your support of our outstanding teachers and staff! 


What if I am not able to donate $20 but would like to help? You can also donate a $10 gift card. 

What if I would rather donate money? You may donate on our website, and we will use that money towards other activities during Teacher Appreciation Week. Please use the GIVING tab on the top right of the website.

What if you do not receive enough gift cards to give out to all staff? We will use the ones we collect and do fun raffles and drawings for them throughout the week.
