Weekly Update

from your Student Support Team


We hope you are doing well and we miss you! As the student support team, we wanted to reach out to families as a reminder that we are here and available to serve you. Our team is comprised of: Erin Cracchiolo (elementary school social worker), Meredith Newman (middle academy counselor), Sarah Naftel (senior academy counselor) and Autumn Robinson (school psychologist).

As we wrap up the second week of virtual learning, our continued hope for you and your family is that you are giving yourself grace and time to adjust. We will all make mistakes during this time and it's ok to make mistakes! We are all seeing changes on a daily basis, and if a need arises, please communicate with EWA's Student Services Dept or any EWA staff member so you and your family can be connected with resources to help you during this challenging time. You are not in this alone - we are here to help!


Here are a few ways we are here to help during our e-learning:

  • Backpack buddies: providing weekly snacks to students and families
  • Virtual counseling: please email your preferred contact person to schedule a session
  • Community resources: we have contacts and listings to help support your basic needs during this time of uncertainty

High School Scheduling Updates

Good news!! For students who are in HS or rising 9th grade students, Mrs. Naftel has been granted the green light to start adjusting schedules and will be releasing schedules on these dates:

Rising 12th grade, students with 504s, and students with IEPs: week of April 13

Rising 11th grade: week of April 20th

Rising 10th grade: week of April 27th

Rising 9th grade: week of May 4

Students who are registering for CCP - once you have been granted access to do so, please email me at your earliest convenience so I can tell you which blocks can be dedicated to College & Career Promise classes.

Students will receive an email (in their EWA gmail account) that their schedule is available. Students then have the choice to either make a virtual appointment (phone conference or video conference through Google Meet) to see and discuss their schedule or they can simply email me for a copy of their schedule. (link to virtual meeting will be sent to student in a separate email)
