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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.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 email@example.com.
Good Morning UAMA Families,
We will be having a town hall on September 14, 2020 at 6:30 PM. This town hall will give you the most up to date information provided by the DOE. It will also give us a chance to check in with our families and answer any questions you may have. Please reach out to our parent coordinator, Cierra Copeland, at firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions.
Hello UAMA Families,
ALL DOE employees, visitors, and families seeking to enter DOE buildings must complete a health screening before entering DOE facilities. This health screening must be completed on each day of arrival and results will reset at midnight of each day. Upon entering the facility you will be asked to provide the results of your screening either by showing your phone or a printout of the results.
Appointments are required for all visitors. Please reach out to our parent coordinator, Cierra Copeland, at email@example.com, to schedule an appointment.
Hello UAMA Families,
Please see the school calendar and the letter from our chancellor which includes reopening updates for families. Please continue to check the DOE website for updates.
Please notify our parent coordinator, Ms.Copeland, regarding any changes in phone number, email, or permanent address. Please contact Ms.Copeland via email at, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are currently finalizing our student schedules for the upcoming school year. Students will be scheduled based on the remote learning preferences families filled out over the summer. Students will be assigned to 3 Groups that determine what their schedules will be.
Group A students will have in-person days on Monday, and Tuesdays. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will be remote days.
Group B students will have in-person days on Thursday and Friday. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday will be remote days.
Group D will be remote-only.
The graph below will show this more clearly:
We also need parents to fill out a Hybrid Learning Dismissal Form. By filling out this form, parents will be giving students permission to go home unaccompanied by an adult in the event a student arrives on a day they are not scheduled for. If this form is not filled out, parents will need to pick up the their children at the school before the child can be dismissed.
Emails were sent out to students and parents detailing what group they have been assigned to.
If you have not received an email, or would like to change your remote learning preference, please contact our the parent coordinator Ms. Copeland at email@example.com.
