    End of Spring Semester Letter and Schedule to Families

    Good day,

    As the school year comes to a close on Friday, June 25th, we wanted to share the schedule below for all scholars and families.

    As shared in our May 26 email in PupilPath, a small handful of scholars and families have informed us and decided to take the NYS Regents exams. Scholars who are taking the Regents exams will be allowed to leave the school building after completing the exam.

    Scholars who are not taking a Regents exam, must continue to learn either In-Person or Remote until the last day of school, Friday, June 25th. Attendance is required until the last day of school.

    The last day of regular classes is Monday, June 14th (fully remote). From June 15th – June 25th, scholars and teachers will continue to follow their daily schedule. Teachers will provide a student engagement activity each day to all scholars. Scholars who have received an NX grade, will be provided with support from their teachers to resolve their NX grade.

    As always, if you are in need of support and/or clarity, please contact the school’s administration and/or your child’s counselor.

    Thank you and good luck to all the scholars!

    ***UPDATED (9/30) ***Student Information Regarding Classes

    When Should You Come to School for Your Classes?

    In order to ensure social distancing, students who are coming to school for classes (blended learning) will be coming in smaller groups on different days. We will be using a six day cycle for classes, with students in school for two school days in a row, and learning from home for the next four school days. Students will be organized into three groups, A, B, and C. The cycle will be AA (Day 1 and 2), BB (Day 3 and 4), CC (Day 5 and 6). The A group comes for 2 days, then the B group for 2 days, and then the C group for 2 days.

    The D group are the students who will be learning from home full time (remote).

    All students will follow their schedules remotely for the first three days, from Wednesday to Friday, September 16th-18th. Students must use their Wings Nation email/account and follow their schedules each day. In school classes start on Monday, September 21st.

    Students should click on the link below that corresponds to their grade to see which group they are assigned.  Students should look for their OSIS number (9 digit ID) and see if they are in A, B, or C. (Note this list may not show recent requests submitted for full time remote instruction.)

    9th Grade Groups      10th Grade Groups        11th Grade Groups                 12th Grade Groups

    The link below is the calendar that tells students the dates they should come to the school for their classes (remember to check the date with the group number). On the days students are home, they should follow their schedule and sign into their classes. 

    Here is the link to sign in: Wings Academy High School Calendar

    CLASS SCHEDULES

    You can now see your class schedules on PupilPath. Contact the school and speak to Ms. Claudio if you need your PupilPath account login information.

    Here is the link to access: The New Bell Schedule. (Period 1 starts at 8:30am)

    9TH GRADERS: YOUR WINGS NATION ACCOUNTS

    Ninth graders all have Wings Nation accounts/emails now. Students will use these to sign into their classes online and receive emails from their teachers that will let them link into those classes.

    Emails are in this format: lastname.firstname@wingsnation.org. (no capitals). Therefore, if your name is Miles Davis, your email is davis.miles@wingsnation.org.

    Students default email password is Wings123 . (Make sure you capitalize the W). Change it right away to another password, and keep track of that password.

    Here is the link to sign in: Wings Nation GMail account

    You will be getting emails from your teachers with links into your online classes.

    If you have any questions, you can email support@wingsnation.org.

    Thank you and looking forward to seeing everyone!
