Pre-Academy to Host Parent Nights The pre-academy faculty and administration will be hosting parent nights, March 20th, and April 17th from 4-5:30pm in the cafeteria. The motivation behind these nights is for students and parents to have interaction with the staff regarding important topics like, homework, time-management, accessing Compass and Skyward, preparing for ISTEP assessments, and other pressing issues. APA values the school, student, family partnership and looks forward to a high level of participation from our students, parents and guardians.
APA releases student medication policy
APA has released its student medicaiton policy for the 2013-2014 school year. You can get more information about the policy here.
APA implements new student protection policy
APA has passed a new policy intended to protect the students entrusted to our care; we passed this policy due to our school being so large that we no longer know every single parent/guardian/relative of our students. Therefore, if you plan to come to school during the school day and have access to a student, you must show a state-issued ID and have your name on the student’s file in order to have access to that student. Again, this is not intended to inconvenience you but to protect a student from a person who should not have access to that student.
APA goes paperless
APA will no longer be printing out hard copies of reports cards for grades 6-12. Report cards will be available on Skyward within 1 week after close of the grading period. Students/parents may go to Skyward to view and print report cards if they wish (See below how to obtain Skyward login if you do not have one.) If parents want a paper copy of the report card and do not have internet access, they need to send Capt. Thompson (firstname.lastname@example.org) in writing their request stating why they need a copy and we will print and send one home with their child.
Grade access is now available If you wish to access your child’s grades, discipline, lunch/fee balance, etc., please do the following. We will process the information as quickly as possible and get back with you.
We must verify your information before you will receive your logins. Please email Capt. Thompson the following information for each child:
1. Child’s name and grade
2. Your relationship to child
3. Child’s home address
4. Main phone contact
Only those officially entered into our system as guardians will be allowed access.
