Updates as of 2/23
We've consolidated our information for the spring semester. Please see below for all of our updates.
We've added a list of online forms for families at the bottom of this page.
Contacting the School
The best way to reach the school is to contact firstname.lastname@example.org which includes all administrators, Mr. Bissonnette the programmer, and Mr. Joseph, one of the guidance counselors.
The best way to reach a teacher or group of teachers is either via PupilPath or by direct email. Email addresses are listed on the Contact Us page.
Online Learning Platforms
Eagle Academy Google Workspace Accounts
All scholars have accounts @eaglebronx.org which enables them to work with our online platforms. For more information on how to access your account, visit our Gmail page.
This is where all assignments are posted. All scholars have a Classroom in Google Classroom for each course that they are taking. https://classroom.google.com
All families and scholars should register with PupilPath to stay up-to-date on scholar progress and receive communication from the school. If you don't know your PupilPath login, contact your son's guidance counselor.
All scholars should use their Eagle Bronx logins for Zoom or Google Meet.
Spring 2021 Learning Environments
Return to In-Person Learning
For middle school scholars who were previously scheduled for some in-person learning, and did not change their learning preference to fully remote learning, in-person learning resumes on Thursday, February 25. Scholars who are scheduled for blended learning must be up to date on immunizations and have signed COVID testing consent forms on file.
Middle school scholars who have their learning preference set to fully remote will remain fully remote for the remainder of the school year. If the New York City Department of Education changes this policy, we will update families.
High school learning will be fully remote until further notice. Scholars will have a blend of synchronous (live) instruction and asynchronous (independent) instruction.
There is no plan at this time for high school scholars to return to in-person learning. If we return to in-person learning, only those scholars who still have blended as their learning preference will be able to return.
Spring 2021 Learning Groups
The middle school, effective 2/25, has three learning groups:
Imperial/Crowned/Royal: these groups are combined into ONE group for daily in-person learning.
Nested #1: this is one of of the two all-remote groups.
Nested #2: this is the other of the two all-remote groups.
The high school continues to operate with the learning groups established before the high school went remote:
Imperial/Crowned/Royal: dedicated small-group instruction on select days (representing in-person learning days) of the week with combined instruction on the other days. These groups remain in place in the even that high schools return to in-person instruction. This schedule is subject to change if in-person learning resumes.
Imperial: every Monday and select Thursdays (2/25, 3/18, 4/15, 5/6, 5/27, 6/17)
Crowned: every Tuesday and select Thursdays (3/4, 3/25, 4/22, 5/13, 6/3, 6/24)
Royal: every Wednesdays and select Thursdays (3/11, 4/8, 4/29, 5/20, 6/10)
Nested: dedicated small-group instruction on Tuesdays for most classes, and mixed classes other days.
