 Students must attend all study sessions and all exams with only the following exceptions: (1) If you have a study hall or (2) if you are vouching out of an exam, you do not need to attend that exam period or the study session preceding it.  Study sessions and exam sessions will meet for the entire time allotted.  Students not scheduled to be in a study session or exam because of the exceptions above must be either off campus or in the Media Center during those times.  Students who arrive during either a study session or an exam must report to the Media Center.  Also, the above exceptions would be the only legitimate reason for being off campus between the starting and ending times of each day.  The intent of the study sessions is to give students one more opportunity to make sure they are well prepared for an exam.  Study sessions will be held in the same room and with the same teacher as the following exam.  Students should bring study materials.  These are study sessions, not review sessions, which means that students will have this time to prepare themselves for exams, not to have the teacher prepare them.


Return books at the south concourse across from the gym. Textbooks may be returned between exams and for one hour after school ends each exam day.  CHROMEBOOKS AND CHARGERS:   Return to the Media Center to be examined and checked in.  Students should return their Chromebooks and chargers during exam week once their exams are over.
