As you probably know, one of the weather-related school cancellation days (December 20) will be made up on Thursday, March 6. Therefore, our second term final examinations will be held on Wednesday, March 5, and Thursday, March 6.
We will follow our normal daily schedule – 7:15am-2:55pm -- for those two days of finals, and not the adjusted schedule listed in our handbook, or previously posted on the website. All classes (except for Physical Education) will meet at their regular times on BOTH March 5 and 6.
Final exams for Language Arts, Social Studies and World Languages will be held on Wednesday, March 5. Final exams for Math, Science and Electives (Art, Business Education, Family and Consumer Science, Industrial Technology) will be held on Thursday, March 6. Some teachers may choose to give only unit exams and move forward with instruction.
Physical education classes will not meet on March 5 and 6 to allow students more time to prepare for final examinations in their other classes. As is the case when final exams are held on our normal exam schedule, students are not required to be in school for study halls, PE class periods, or open periods, although the cafeteria will be available for quiet study.
Our reason for the change is to maximize instructional time because of the time lost to weather-related cancellations and delays. Instead of one 90-minute testing period, teachers will have two 55-minute class periods to utilize. Four of the scheduled make-up days are scheduled for June long after AP examinations are taken and seniors have graduated. It is imperative that we make the best possible use of the time we have available.
There is no school on Friday, March 7, and we will begin our third term on Monday, March 10.

The District has so far experienced five weather-related school cancellations. Since we were unable to use Feb. 17 as a make-up date, the cancellations will be made up on Thursday, March 6; Monday, June 9; Tuesday, June 10; Wednesday, June 11; and Thursday, June 12.
All of these dates are identified as make-up dates on the 2013-14 calendar. The final day of classes for the school year (whatever date that ends up being) will be an early dismissal day for students.
