Semester exams are scheduled to be given on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, December 17-19, 2014. Students will be required to report to school only during their scheduled testing times, and they may leave after a testing period provided they present a note from a parent or guardian giving them permission to leave campus. Notes will be turned in to the last testing period teacher each day. The teacher will keep the notes on file in their classroom and send a listing of students via e-mail to the administration and Mrs. Brooks.
**Wednesday will be a regular school day, even for those who are exempt.
