Semester Test Information:  Semester tests are December 18 and 19. December 18 is even period tests and December 19 is odd period tests. Each day, we will run a normal 7 period schedule. Periods that are not testing, will be study sessions for all students present. Students must have missed no more than 4 days this semester (we will use the office official count) and have earned a B or better both nine weeks in a class to be exempt.  This means that if you have missed 29 periods, you have missed more than 4 days and you have to take all semester tests. Students must be present for their first test of the day and remain at school until all of their tests are complete for the day. For example, if a student has a test 3rd period and 7th period, he or she will remain at school 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7th periods. Students who ride a bus or wish to come the entire school day are welcome to do so! If a student wishes to check out at the end of the day, after all of their required tests are complete for the day, the student must be physically signed out by a parent or have a note from the parent or guardian in hand that gives permission for them to leave campus early.


Credit recovery will begin January 27th. It meets on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday for 20—three hour sessions that run from 3:30-6:30. You may not be late for or absent from credit recovery for any reason. This includes athletics, personal illness, and family emergency. Zero tolerance for absences. It is free. You could recover one-half credit (one semester) in credit recovery. Classes offered will be English, Math, World History, Science, and Oral Comm/Critical Reading. Sign up in the office begins January 7th.  If you are missing credits in any of the above courses, your name needs to get on this list!
