The mid-year point for the 2019-2020 school year is almost upon us! The mid-term exam schedule runs Friday through Wednesday, January 17-22, 2020. We will be conducting assessments during this time such as mid-term examinations, final exams for half year courses, and other make-up opportunities. We have two-hour blocks designed for these days. Students are required to attend all blocks. However, if students have a Study Hall or Lunch block at the beginning or the end of the day, they may arrive late or leave early with written parental permission (see attached form). The written documentation must be accounted for in our Attendance Office by Tuesday, January 14, 2020.
Regents Week, which runs concurrently with the mid-term schedule, is Tuesday through Friday, January 21-24, 2020. Please refer to the attached schedule — students needing to take Regents exams during this testing period have already been notified.
With school in regular session for Mid-Term Days and Regents Week, school transportation will run their regularly scheduled times in both the morning and the afternoon. No alternate transportation will be provided by the district. If your child has a Study Hall or Lunch during the first and/or third mid-term exam blocks and they have permission from you to leave early or come to school late, you are responsible for providing transportation. Late buses will run as scheduled.
Career and Technical Education Center (CTE) Students
Students will follow the High School block schedule during the Mid-Term days. CTE is aware of our schedule and realizes that some students have a commitment to a scheduled exam, mid-term, or class instruction at their home school during this time. CTE busses will run at their regularly scheduled times. Some alternate times will be made available as well. Please have your child stop down at the High School Office if they have questions about this.
