We will not be able to administer exams early. Please review our calendar prior to scheduling summer activities. You will have to be here during exam week and take your exams on the scheduled days

.

District Finals are 10% of your Semester 2 grade. If your class had a State EOC, Biology, US History, Geometry, and Algebra, it will count 30% of your year-long grade. If your class does not have a District Final or EOC, it should have a teacher exam and that should be explained in the individual syllabus.

If you have not taken an EOC or the FSA, please make sure that you see Mrs. Fillmore in the Media Center to make it up.

Beginning this week, students will not be allowed to have backpacks or large bags. Students may carry clear bags or drawstring bags and purses.

We want to remind students that you need to be on your best behavior over the next week and a half.

Pranks can become serious issues, resulting in criminal charges and recommendation for expulsion.  These situations also impact participation in graduation.  It is important to continue with positive behavior through the end of the year and to celebrate upcoming graduation in appropriate ceremonies. We want all students to be successful and celebrating at end of the year events and graduation, please help support us with this focus.

Please think before you post on social media. We cannot stress this enough! These posts last forever and you will have to be accountable for them in the future.

We also want to remind students and parents that leaving campus without permission, being out of area, and skipping class are all level 2 offenses and cause great concern for us in terms of student safety.

As a reminder, food deliveries are not allowed. Please make sure that you are parking in your assigned spot and do not park on campus if you do not have a tag. You should also not be parking in the medical plaza or old Sweetbay plaza south of campus.

If you need to meet with a school counselor or the career specialist, there is a link for them to know that you would like an appointment.

Finally, if you see something, say something by using our See Something, Say Something link. We follow-up on all things reported to us from this link.

Best wishes to all of our students taking final exams this week! Do your best! You are ready!
