Vol. 21 Issue #21 December 13 - 17
It's Fall Finals Week! Please help us prepare your students for a successful finals week. The schedule is posted below including the all-important review sessions for each particular class period. Let's make it a great week by arriving to school on time, squeezing every last ounce out of each class session, and knocking the exams out of the park!
Final Exam Week - IMPORTANT TO NOTE!
On Thursday, December 16th, students are released at 11:50, but our TISD buses will not pick students up until the normal time at 2:50. In addition, lunch will not be provided for any students who stay on campus to ride the bus home at 2:50. Students who do not want to wait for the bus at 2:50, need to arrange for transportation or may walk home if desired.
On Friday, December 17th, students are released at 11:50 and our TISD buses will run at that time.
Final Reviews and Exam Week Procedures and Reminders
Schedule - Please see the attached schedule for all exam dates and times.
All students are expected to complete the exam at their scheduled time.
Seniors with late arrival and early release need to check their exam/review times!
NO exams may be given early.
Double blocked classes will take their exam during one specific period that will be predetermined by the teacher.
Procedures / Notes
There are no exemptions for final exams during the Fall Semester.
Students must remain in their testing period after completing their exam. Students will not be allowed to leave the room after testing for any reason. This is not the time to visit a coach/teacher, the trainer, their counselor, etc.
Absences / Missed Exams
Any student that misses an exam will have a “Zero” recorded in the gradebook until the make-up is complete.
Semester exam make-ups will be at the direction of the teacher. Every effort will be made to complete exams prior to the grade submission deadline on December 17.
Students that miss an exam due to a documented absence will be given an opportunity to make it up by their teacher either later in the December exam week or the week of our return to school in January.
If no other arrangements can be made, the last possible day to make up a Fall Semester exam will be Saturday, January 8th from 7:30-11:30am. More information will be given to students in January.
If you have a request for an extenuating circumstance regarding a final, please speak to the student’s Assistant Principal or Ms. Hayes about the situation. This includes leaving after testing or other unique circumstances.
