REMINDERS & FYI's

Hello LBMS parents. As the end of the semester approaches us, I would like to remind you that our semester final exams will be held on December 16, 17, and 18, 2020. If students have earned a test exemption from ALL core classes, they have the option to transition to virtual learning for those three days. This means that they will not have to attend school on those 3 days. If students utilize this option, they are required to submit work electronically according to each teacher’s requirements for the day by 10:30 a.m., otherwise, they will be counted absent and lose their exemptions.


If your child is not able to exempt all semester final exams, they will need to report to school to take those exams during the scheduled time. Here are possible scenarios:


Student “A” only has one exam and exempted all other exams: The student reports to school during the assigned time to take the exam. Once that period is over your child may leave or stay for the remainder of the day.


Student “B” has two or three exams: The student reports to school during the specified testing times or they have the option to attend all classes or leave when their testing period ends.


*Buses will only run at the beginning and the end of the day.
