Note: The cafeteria will have lunch available for students after the last exam period on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Buses will depart at 12:45pm.
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 12. Please include the date(s) to be missed, the subject name(s), and teacher name(s), and reason for the missed exam.
Make up exams will occur on:
- Monday, January 5, 8:30 am until 3:00 pm
- Tuesday, January 6, beginning at 3:40 pm
- Wednesday, January 7, beginning 3:40 pm
Late Check-in Guidelines for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday
The first exam periods on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (December 17 - 19) 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. During final exams Study Hall will not meet.
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 rear, or cafeteria, doors and proceed directly to the cafeteria. 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.
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.
