Don’t Log in to Microsoft Office 365 from Public Computers

Microsoft Office 365 has a vulnerability that can expose personal and confidential information to the next user when a shared computer system outside of the PWCS network is used. Therefore, until a fix is found, do NOT access Microsoft Office 365 email or OneDrive on any public, shared computer system. A “shared computer system” is used in hotels, office supply stores, kiosks, and public libraries. This does not affect the PWCS network. You will be informed when it is deemed safe to log in on external shared computer systems.

AP/SOL Testing Early Release

In order to protect the test environment we ask our students and parents to note that students are expected to remain in their test location for the duration of upcoming AP and SOL examinations. When students enter or leave a test environment it can be distracting and unfair to other students who are doing their best during important exams. As a result we will not deliver early release passes to students’ test locations during a test.
 
Important instruction will be ongoing through AP and SOL testing until the end of the year, please support your child's learning by ensuring that he or she remains in school for the full school day. However, students who must request an early dismissal on any testing day are required to present a note to their Alpha Secretary before 7:30 AM on the day of the dismissal. As permission for an early dismissal can only be granted after verbal verification by a parent, failure to submit a note in a timely manner may result in delayed release due to the volume of requests for early dismissal. Students should then sign out with their Alpha Secretary prior to leaving school.
