Good morning parents and guardians,
This is Mr. Albini, Principal of Waterbury Arts Magnet School. I hope that you and your families are staying safe. I wanted to update you regarding the grading policy changes as a result of the closure of schools beginning on March 13th due to COVID-19.
As you know, 10 days of the 3rd quarter were lost, accounting for approximately 23% of the quarter. As a result, teachers will be grading students with either a pass or incomplete for the third quarter.
Please be aware that this will not impact final grades and overall GPA. Students overall grades and GPA will be calculated based on first and second quarter grades, including the midterm. This will be updated in PowerSchool as soon as possible. As a result, PowerSchool will be temporarily unavailable as we transition to accommodate these changes.
As more information comes from the state regarding school closures, we will keep you updated in regards to the fourth quarter.
Thank you for your patience and please be safe.
