IMPORTANT INFORMATION ------ PLEASE READ!
*** Students need to begin turning in their desk shields provided for them back in the fall semester. Please have them turn those in to their third period black day teachers or to the library. As we approach exemptions, it is important that students return this item.
$20.00 to replace.
*** Students need to make sure that they know where their iPad charging block and cord are located, as these items will need to be turned in before final exemptions will be granted. Keyboards along with iPads will be turned in the week of May 17 for students to get final signatures for exemptions.
*** All cafeteria charges need to be cleared by the week of May 14. Many students have a balance due to going through the snack bar line. Please help us with these charges as it is important for your child to begin the new school year with no balances.
*** Library books or fines need to be cleared by May 14 or students will not be able to exempt.
Spring exemptions will be here in four weeks and we want to ensure that your child qualifies to exempt their spring semester test. Below you will find all the criteria to exempt.
A Note from the Nurses' Office Regarding Medications
All medication kept at school must be picked up by the last day of school. Students are not permitted to transport medications home. Any medication remaining at school after the last student day will be properly disposed of on May 28, 2021. This includes all prescription and non-prescription medications, inhalers and Epinephrine pens. If you are unable to pick up medication by the last day of school, alternative arrangements can be made by contacting Nurse Bradshaw prior to the end of the school year.

Semester Final Exemption Criteria
Due to STAAR testing being so late in the semester, we will implement exemptions for the second semester.
In order to exempt a final, a student must have at least a 75 average for the semester and meet the following attendance requirements:
No more than three tardies in any one period (If the class is double-blocked, students cannot have five or more tardies for any one period to be eligible for an exemption)
No more than three absences in any one period of the class the student wants to exempt (If the class is double-blocked, students cannot have five or more absences for any one period to be eligible for an exemption)
Perfect attendance exemptions can be used for a class with a 70 average or above, as long as the student has met attendance requirements
Through unit assessment data, students must show progress through the spring semester
Library and Cafeteria fines need to be reconciled before exemptions can be signed for academics
