  • Exam Changes:  Several students have tested posititive for the flu and there may be others that have symptoms.

    I want to inform you of some minor changes to the exam procedures.

    1. Students who feel like they are prepared to take an exam are being allowed to take them earlier than what is listed on the exam schedule.

    2. On Thursday, students will be allowed to leave immediately after their 2nd period exam to go take their 5th period exam. If they have only a 5th period exam tomorrow, they may come at 7:55 to take that exam or wait until 10 a.m. 

    3. Friday Exams--We are allowing students who are ready to take Friday's exams to take them on Thursday morning once they have finished other tests. Otherwise, they may take their exams on Friday morning, preferably beginning at 7:55 a.m.

    4. If your child has the flu, they may take their exam after the holidays. If they have cold symptons, please have them see Dr. Davis if they come to take a test. We will give them the test away from other students.

    In short, we are using flexibility to let students finish their exams as quickly as possible. Most students and teachers do not like to have exams after the holidays.
