Beginning of the Semester Reminders

Hello,

This is Mrs. Cox, principal of WAAT. Here are some reminders for the beginning of the semester. 

Wednesday, January 6th is the first day of the second semester. Classes will be delivered online through Google Meet beginning at 10:30 a.m.  

Students can find their schedules by going to PowerSchool and clicking on the “My Schedule” link on the left-hand side of the screen. There students will see their classes in the order they will take them throughout the day. The times posted will help students know which block to attend the virtual class. 

Teachers have sent out emails with their Google Classroom codes. Students will need to check their emails for this information. This information along with the bell schedule for the day is located in the WAAT Student Google Classroom.  

Textbooks and report cards will be issued from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, January 8th. It is important that every student comes to get his or her materials. Students also need to return any textbooks, library books, or calculators they may have in their possession. Don’t worry! Students will not need their textbooks before next Monday. 

College classes will begin on Thursday, January 7th. Students will need to check Moodle for syllabus details and to make sure they complete the enrollment verification quiz. Students will receive their textbooks and codes when they come to campus on Friday. Students in grades 10-13 will have virtual class for their college courses as well. They will need to look at their class syllabi for the times. These classes are mandatory. No exceptions. These classes will be listed on their high school schedules. The room number will be WCC. Students will not report to campus to take these classes. 

We do have some virtual learning norms that students need to adhere to this semester. They are: 

  • Students are required to log into class on time. Students should arrive five minutes prior to the start of class. 
  • Students should be prepared for class, having all of their materials ready before class begins. 
  • If a student turns on his or her camera, he or she must be dressed in school attire, sitting up, and blurred his or her background. 
  • Students will be required to speak and actively participate in each class period. 
  • If a student is having technical issues, the student must contact the school as soon as possible to avoid being counted absent. 
  • All work must be turned in on time. The penalty for late work is a 10 point deduction per day. 
  • Students will stay for 75 minutes in each class. 
  • Students will be responsible for asking questions and contacting their teachers or college professors when they need help. 

If you have any questions, please call the school at 252-265-4038. 

Have an awesome evening!
