IMPORTANT! The exams will last for 4 hours. We will develop a schedule for the afternoon so that you will be able to meet with your morning groups on some afternoons and not lose instructional time with them. For example, one afternoon you may see your 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th period classes and another afternoon you will have 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th period classes. Watch your email for this schedule.
