Swim Across America
Appoints Cambridge Swimmers to Junior Board of Advisors
Swim Across America, a national non-profit dedicated to raising money for cancer research through nationwide swimming events, has selected Cambridge juniors Katie Durden, Jason Hink and Paula Morales Solorio to join other elite metro Atlanta swimmers for the inaugural Swim Across America Junior Advisory Board.
Twenty students from ten private and public high schools were nominated by their swim coaches and will represent their high schools as ambassadors of Swim Across America which has raised over $60 million dollars for Cancer Research. In Atlanta, the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center is the beneficiary, and the Atlanta Open Water Swim will be held at Lake Lanier Islands on September 17, 2016 
These three swimmers will dive into a 6-month term and spearhead team-building, awareness and fundraising within the Cambridge Community and surrounding areas all while working amongst Atlanta's current and former Olympians who help host the Swim. They have chosen the name Team Cambridge High School.

EOC and AP Exam Reminders
AP and EOC testing conflicts:
Please note, if your student is scheduled to take an AP exam at the same time as an EOC, the EOC will be rescheduled during the make up session. If a student has both an AP and EOC test on the same day, but at different (non-conflicting) times, the expectation is that the student will take both exams.

Check-out during EOC and AP Exams - attendance office:
Please note that over the next several weeks, students will engage in various testing. Students cannot be checked out while an exam is in session, as testing rooms cannot be interrupted. During this time, our standard attendance polices are in place during all testing days. If your student must be checked out during the day due to illness or an excused appointment, a signed note must be given to the attendance office that morning. Your student will be given a pass to leave at the appointed time, as long as an exam is not in session. Students checking out without a signed medical note, or doctor's note, will be considered unexcused. For reminders of the school's attendance polices click here.

Dates and policies
Second Semester Final Exams will be held May 19 - 25, 2016 for 12th grade students and May 23 - 26, 2016 for 9th through 11th grade students. A complete schedule for final exams can be found here.

Missed Exams
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, May 13, 2016. Please include the date(s) to be missed, the subject
name(s), the teacher name(s), and reason for the missed exam. 

12th Grade: Ms. Price - PriceAF@fultonschools.org
11th Grade: Ms. Premoli - Premoli@fultonschools.org
10th Grade: Mr. Maize - Maize@fultonschools.org

Tuesday, May 31 - 9:00 am until 12:00 pm
Wednesday, June 1 - 9:00 am until 12:00 pm

Late Arrivals - Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
The first exam periods on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (May 24, 25, 26) 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 or during exam periods. Classrooms cannot be disturbed, and students will not be allowed in the academic halls.

Second Semester Senior Exemption Requirements
Students, parents, faculty, and administration support a policy for exemption of final examinations. The Cambridge High School exemption policy is based on academic performance and behavior.

Academic Performance:
A senior will be allowed to exempt a final exam, not an end-of-course test or "EOC," in a non- Advanced Placement class in which his/her current average is 88 or higher. Should a student's average drop once the exemption is approved, the teacher will inform the student that he/she no longer qualifies for exemption.

All students in Advanced Placement courses who take the AP College Board Exam may exempt the final exam regardless of their current course average, but will be expected to complete all graded activities assigned through the end of the semester. Any student who elects not to take the AP College Board Exam must take a final exam, regardless of his/her current course average, that will count in the final course average. 

- No OSS (Out-of-School suspension)
- No more than two (2) Friday Night Schools
- No academic dishonesty violations

The following approvals and signatures are required for exemption:
Teacher for the course exam to be exempted
- Parent or guardian
- Administrator

In order to apply for an exam exemption the student is responsible for completing the senior exemption form, obtaining approval signatures, and returning the form by the deadline: Thursday, May 12, 4:00 pm. Under no circumstances will forms be accepted after the deadline. Exemption forms will be available to seniors on May 2, 2016, in the front office.

It is not too soon to let us know you will be withdrawing at the end of this semester.  Please contact Nancy Sheridan in the Counseling Office as soon as possible if your student will not be returning next year so she can start the process. 
We will need to know the name of the school your child will be attending next year and your new address if you are moving.  All books will need to be returned to Ms. Sheridan in the Counseling Office once they are no longer needed to study for finals (the exception being any media center books would need to be returned to the Media Center). 
The authorized parent/guardian will also need to come into the guidance office to sign the withdrawal form prior to the last day of school.  Once all books have been returned, and the paperwork is completed, you or your student can pick up the withdrawal packet to take to the new school. The new school will send a records request to Cambridge once they are enrolled.
