Hopewell MS End of Semester Exam Schedule- The schedule below indicates the days that your student will take their exams for their Core Classes. These schedules were developed by the teachers at each grade level in order to “spread out” the stress of the schedule on your student(s). If your student is going to be absent for any of this time, they will need to follow the make-up exam procedures outlined on the school’s website.
- Dec. 15th - None
- Dec. 16th - Social Studies
- Dec. 17th - ELA, Reading, World Languages
- Dec. 18th - Science, Math
- Dec. 19th - none
Final Exam Make-Up Procedures - Some courses will hold significant assessments at the end of the first semester, during the week of December 15th. If your student will be absent any day that week, please submit a signed parent note to the Front Office by December 9, 2014. Your student will then be given a sheet to take to all their teachers to notify them.
Students will not be permitted to take these assessments early. The Exam Make-up days will be the first five days of the Second Semester after school, starting on January 6th. Students should report to the Front Office afterschool on these days. If they are unable to take the exams on these days, please contact your child’s grade-level administrator to develop a schedule. We will not be able to provide transportation home, so someone will need to be available to pick the student up on these days after they complete their exam. Teachers will not be administering any make-up exams after the Winter Break unless approved by administration.
Please note that teachers will enter a grade of zero for the missed assessment until the student makes it up. Incompletes will not be given. This will result in a lower than expected Semester 1 grade. Once the assessment is completed and graded, the semester grade will be changed, and there are no lasting effects on the student’s transcript.
