The revised schedule for the exams at the end of first semester is as follows. This is the schedule that was devised after the snow day on Wednesday.
Thursday, January 12
8:00 – 9:15 a.m. 1st Hour Exam
9:45 – 11:00 a.m. 2nd Hour Exam
11:00 – 12:00 Lunch
12:00 – 1:15 p.m. 3rd Hour Exam
1:15 p.m. Dismissal (busing at 3:15 p.m.)
Friday, January 13
7:50 – 9:05 a.m. 4th Hour Exam
9:25 – 10:40 a.m. 5th Hour Exam (Busing at 11: 30 a.m. for those who don’t have a 6th hour exam)
11:00 – 12:15 6th Hour Exam
12:15 p.m. Dismissal (No busing for HS after 6th hour exam)
By starting exams at 7:50 a.m. on Friday instead of 8:00 and shortening the time between tests to 20 minutes instead of 30 minutes, we’ll still be able to get students out by 12:15 so dance camp, Robotics plans, etc. can still take place as scheduled on Friday afternoon. NOTE: There is no lunch time built into Friday’s schedule. If you will need to eat before the 12:15 p.m. dismissal, please bring a snack to eat BETWEEN exams.
Monday, January 16
8:00 – 9:15 a.m. 7th Hour Exam
9:45 – 11:00 a.m. 8th Hour Exam
11:00 a.m. Dismissal (busing at 3:15 p.m.)
In order to be prepared for finals, please be sure that the following requirements are met:
Students must have all debts paid before finals. This includes missing textbooks, IT fines, lunch money owed, and miscellaneous class and retreat fees. Notifications of EXAM CLEARANCE will be emailed by Mr. Tursky on Friday, January 6th.
