Teachers will be in their rooms for the Study Period if students have questions or would like to study.  Students do not need to arrive until between 8:45 and 9:00 a.m. and report to their first hour exam.  If students who ride the bus cannot arrange their own transportation, they will arrive at their regular time and report to their first exam classroom at 8:18.

 

All students may leave at 2:15 p.m., but not before, on days one and two of exams.  Buses will run at 3:15 on Wednesday and Thursday.  If transportation is a problem, students can report to the gym to be supervised by Mr. Furlow or Mr. Eucker.  On day three of exams, students may leave if they do not have Early Bird or once they have completed their last exam.

 

All students:  You do not have to stay for the last period of the day if the exam you opt out of is scheduled for that period.  You must stay until your last exam is over; you cannot leave in the middle of an exam period.  You must bring a note from home stating that you have permission to leave after your last final of the day.  THIS IS ONLY FOR STUDENTS OPTING OUT OF AN EXAM THE LAST PERIOD OF THE DAY.

 

Please refer to page 12 and 13 of the student handbook for testing incentives and opt out rules.
