As we near the end of the 1st quarter we want to pass along some important information regarding 2018 mid-term exams. This year, exams will be given prior to Winter Break. This change allows students to test on material while it is fresh in their minds.
Please note that we will move to a block schedule for exam days and that attendance will be taken each day with unexcused absences counting against a student's required seat time hours. Any absence without a written doctors note must be approved by Mr. Peake in advance of the exam.
December 18th - 1st and 5th Period Exams
December 19th - 2nd and 6th Period Exams
December 20th - 3rd and 7th Period Exams
December 21st - 4th Period (half-day)
Please note that makeup exams must be completed upon return from Winter Break.
