2016-17 SECOND SEMESTER EXAM SCHEDULE

EXAM SCHEDULE

  1. No one will be excused from any exam or have exam dates altered without prior approval of Mr. Luebbe.
  2. Semester exams will count as 20% of the semester grade for each student taking an exam. Students skipping exams will receive a zero (0) for the exam.
  3. Absence Procedure- Parents must call on the day of the absence or a “0” is given for the exam.  Students should only be absent if an illness is severe enough to prevent their attendance. A doctor’s note will be required to allow for exam make-up.  The office will call absentees.
  4. The building will be secured at the regular time (7:45).  Students must enter the building through the main entrance after 7:45.  Students should report to the cafeteria for quiet study when they are not in a scheduled exam testing room.  Students are not permitted anywhere else in the building.
  5. Students will not be permitted late to an exam and will be permitted to use the Make-up period with a 10% deduction in points for the exam.  Failure to attend the Make-up will be considered “skipping” (see #2 above).
  6. Late notes and phone calls will count against the attendance policy.
  7. After school study tables on May 23rd and 25th will not be available.
  8. Bells will be rung only according to the testing schedule.
  9. The use of hall passes is discouraged during exam periods; we want to keep everything as quiet as possible.
  10. All teachers are to give final exams during exam periods unless they have prior approval of Mr. Luebbe.
  11. Students only need to be present for periods when they have exams.  Once they arrive at school they must remain in school until they are finished with their last exam for the day.  
  12. Each student may take only one exam per period.
  13. Arrange to use the entire test time, as this exam is to be comprehensive of the semester’s work and students are not to be dismissed until the conclusion of the examination period.
  14. During exams, all must remain in the testing area until the exam is over.
