Students are expected to be in attendance for each exam.  Individual arrival and dismissal times depend on each student's schedule.  Students may leave school when they are dismissed from their last exam for that day.  There is no school on make-up day (unless student has a scheduled make-up exam or placement test).  Students who miss an exam for illness or other excused reason must contact their teacher directly to schedule the make-up exam.  Make-up day is for excused absences only.



Breakfast items and beverages will be available in the cafeteria from 7 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The cafeteria will be closed on exam make-up day (currently scheduled for January 23).

We are grateful to the library for accommodating our students, who are reminded to be mindful of other library patrons during exam time.



In the event of a weather-related 2-hour delay, the exam schedule will be as follows:

AM buses will run routes two hours later; PM buses will be at 2:25 p.m.


If school is closed for inclement weather, power outages, or emergencies, the exam schedule will be adjusted so that the next school day will have the exams that were missed and the schedule will move along in order.
