First Semester Final Exam Exemption Incentive: (Final Exam Exemption window opens November 29 and closes December 5, 2017)
Cambridge High School's Final Exam Exemption Incentive can be found at www.cambridgehs.org. Students must meet all qualifications of the exemption policy at the time they make their exemption request. Request will be made through the Final Exam Exemption Request form that will be posted to www.cambridgehs.org beginning Thursday, November 29, 2017.

Students who are approved for final exam exemption will be notified by their teacher (for the exam they have requested to exempt) by Wednesday, December 13, 2017.
In addition, students must obtain parent/guardian approval to exempt any final. If a signed parent form is not received, a student is not qualified for exemption and will not be approved. Parent permission can be completed in one of the following three ways:

ZippSlip was used to electronically sign the user agreement for your student's device. If you do not have an account, you can create a new ZippSlip Account here.
If you do not remember your password or signature PIN, they can be obtained at www.ZippSlip.com , or
Download a permission form at www.cambridgehs.org, sign and return to the Cambridge front office before 4:00 pm, December 5, or

Students are expected to maintain their qualification for exempting a final exam through the final exam period.

The final exam exemption policy includes the following qualifications.
Five or fewer absences (excused and unexcused) per semester, in the class a student wishes to exempt the final exam
OSS counts toward absences
Average ≥ 70, in the class the student wishes to exempt

Late Check-in Guidelines – Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday:
The first exam periods on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (December 19-21) are also lunch periods. During lunch periods, students who have lunch will remain in the cafeteria and will use the time to study for final exams.
Your student may arrive late rather than attend during his/her lunch period. If your student is arriving late on one of the half-day final exam days, he/she must arrive by 10:35 am. Students arriving late will remain in the cafeteria until it is time to move to the 10:40 am exam. Students riding in car pool must enter through the cafeteria doors on the north side of the building (facing Kings Ridge). Student drivers must enter through the cafeteria doors. Do not drop your student off at the front doors as they will be directed to the cafeteria side entrance. Students cannot be in the academic halls during testing.
Students are expected to be present and on time on all testing days. If a student must miss a final exam due to illness, the parent/guardian must call the Attendance Office on the day of the absence in order for the student to take his/her exam on the make-up days. If the Attendance Office is not alerted, the absence will be considered unexcused.
All other missed exams must receive prior approval by the student's grade-level administrator. To obtain approval the parent/guardian should email the administrator by Friday, December 15. Please include the date(s) to be missed, the subject name(s), the teacher name(s), and reason for the missed exam.
Make up exams will take place in the Student Center and will occur on:
Thursday, January 4, 8:30 am – 3:00 pm
Friday, January 5, 8:30 am – 3:00 pm
Checking Students Out:
Students will not be allowed to check out while exams are in progress. Classrooms cannot be disturbed, and students will not be allowed in the academic halls. For a student to check out prior to the end of the day, please have your student bring a note to the Attendance Office at the beginning of the school day. Due to the volume, the Attendance Office cannot accept emails or phone calls at check-out time.
Winter End of Course (EOC) exams will be held December 11 - 14, 2017. Please see the testing schedule below.
