AP & EOC Testing

AP Exams will continue this week, and will still be given in various classrooms in the math/science wing of the building. This causes some classes to be displaced into different parts of the building. Please be aware of these changes to the regular schedule and be patient with students and teachers as they try to adjust. In addition, EOC testing will also run Tuesday (5/9) - Friday (5/12). The Algebra 2 and Biology EOC will be given in the math/science wing and the English 2/US History EOC will be given in their respective hallways. There is a very good chance that you will be displaced/proctoring/covering at some point during this week, so please look closely at the schedules sent out and search for your name or room number. If you have questions, please call or email Mischa Brainard.

We will still operate with no bells and limited announcements each day.
