Late Check-in Guidelines
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
The first exam periods on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (December 20 - 22) 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.

The male staff at Cambridge High School banded together to bring awareness and raise funds for men's Health by growing facial hair for the month of November, now known as "Movember", with the motto "Grow a Mo, save a Bro".
Did you know? Men experience worse longer-term health issues than women and die on average of six years earlier. Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years. Testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50 years. Three quarters of suicides are men. Poor mental health leads to half a million men taking their own life every year. That's one every minute.
The Cambridge team raised over $1,000 and all proceeds will be donated to the Movember Foundation. If you are interested in supporting this endeavor you can still make a donation on the Cambridge Movember Foundation page.
For Public Comment
The Cambridge School Governance Council is seeking comment for two Requests for Flexibility for the 2017-2018 school year.
Proposal #1 - Personalized Learning Wednesday
Proposal #2 - Open Campus Lunch for 12th Graders

Not Returning to Cambridge Next Semester?
The normal turnaround time for processing withdrawals is 48 hours, however it is not too soon to let the school know if your student will be withdrawing at the end of this semester. Please contact Ms. Sheridan in the Counseling Office as soon as possible if your student will not be returning next semester so she can start the process.
The Counseling Office will need to know the name of the school your child will be attending, and your new address if you are moving. All textbooks will need to be returned to Ms. Sheridan in the Counseling Office once they are no longer needed for finals. Any media center books or materials would need to be returned to the media center.
To complete the withdrawal process an authorized parent/guardian will need to come into the counseling office to sign the withdrawal form. Once all books have been returned, and the paperwork is completed, you or your student can pick up the withdrawal packet in the counseling office from December 21 through 22, 2016 during the morning hours only. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Ms. Sheridan.
