Final Exams are Around the Corner
The end-of-semester final exams will be held on Thursday, March 30th and Friday, March 31st.  School is dismissed at 12:30 on March 31st for Spring Break. Final exams need to be taken on the day and time scheduled.  Students are not permitted to take early or late finals except in cases of illness or exceptional circumstances.  Exceptions must be pre-approved by the principal.  Family vacations do not constitute exceptional circumstances.  Non-approved absences result in a “0” grade on the final exam.  During final exams, students are required to be in classes like regular school days.  The regular school attendance policy will apply to all absences.
