Mustang News for August 16, 2020
Good Afternoon Mustang Families,
Tonight is the night! Tonight is the night to be certain alarm clocks are set and students have practiced logging into their WakeID Portals. We have provided Guides to Technology to support accessing WakeID, PowerSchool and email. This site also contains information about helpdesk support.
Tonight is also the night our schedules will be made available at 6pm. Creating schedules for both VIrtual Academy and Plan B Transition has required us to take more time in checking students schedules and a delay in feeling comfortable releasing schedules earlier. Over the next several days, we will review the schedules and make adjustments for class sizes. We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.
As a reminder, all students will log into their homeroom teacher’s classroom and google meet on Monday and every day this week. The daily orientation schedule is on our website. If, Monday morning, your student is unsure where to go, please have him or her contact the grade level administrator or counselor for assistance. As a reminder, all students are required to work through their WakeID Portal and use their WCPSS email address to communicate with teachers, counselors and administrators. This is a new way to open the school year and we expect there to be delays and questions. We are here to help and support each family.
WCPSS Technology Services Department is preparing devices for all students who requested a device through the Technology Survey that was conducted in July. Leesville Road High, Knightdale High, South Garner High, Apex High and Enloe High will serve as distribution sites and families will be able to go to the site that is most convenient. Technology services will notify those who requested a chromebook or hotspot in the coming days to let you know the devices requested are available. Please do not go to a distribution site before your designated day as the devices will not be available.
We will host our first Parent Coffee on August 24th at 8am and 4pm. We will discuss in greater detail the learning and teaching schedule starting August 31st. The meeting codes are:

As a reminder, all 7th grade students are required to have a TDAP Booster as well as the Meningococcal Vaccine and Martin is required to have a copy of the vaccination on file. The 30 day grace period for the required immunizations has been extended by Governor Cooper due to COVID-19 and begins on October 1. Please send a copy of the proof of vaccine to Ms. Sepulveda at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are unable to send a copy via email, please plan to drop the hard copy off at school starting August 17th.
Have a wonderful Sunday afternoon!
