Preparing for the 2020 – 2021 School Year

Posted by on 6:20 pm in News | 0 comments

Hello Parents and Students!

We have been working hard to make sure that the start of the 2020 – 2021 school year goes smoothly. This post will help students and parents obtain important information beginning at the start of the new year

9th Grade and transfers UAMA Account Activation

Every student at UAMA has an account associated with the school. This is no exception for incoming 9th graders and students who have transferred. This account will be used for email communications, accessing their Google Classroom, accessing their Google Drive, and much more. In order to activate their accounts, students must go to admin.google.com and enter their account username and password.

Student account information is based off a combination of their first name, last name, and OSIS # that is formatted as such:
The entirety of their first name, the first letter of their last name, the last 4 digits of their OSIS, and @uamusicandart.org. Default passwords are set to their OSIS #.

So for instance, if the students name is Jamal Smith, and their OSIS # is 123456789, their username would be jamals6789@uamusicandart.org and they password would be 123456789

Parents will also be receiving an email with this information if we have an email on record for them. If you are still having issues receiving or accessing the account, please contact Ms. Copeland at copeland1@uamusicandart.org. You will need to provide the students OSIS # and date of birth.

Accessing Your PupilPath Account & Schedule

We are still processing student schedules. When this is done, students will be able to see their class schedules online via their PupilPath accounts.

Emails will be going out by the end of the day that contains PupilPath account activation details for those who have to activate their account or have forgotten their password. These emails will be going to students @uamusicandart.org email accounts, so please make sure to keep a look out for it.

Picking Up Devices / Dropping Off Devices

We will be allowing parents and students to come pick up devices so they can engage in remote learning. This will be this week, from Tuesday, September 15th to Friday, September 18th, between 1:30 PM and 3:00 PM. If you would like to pick up a device, please fill out this form.

Devices will be handed out on a first come first serve basis. If you have received an iPad, you may also come in to exchange it for a Chromebook. If you have a device given to you last year that has been damaged, you may come replace it for a working device. Any more questions regarding this can be emailed to Adam, the school technology specialist at adam@uamusicandart.org.
