On Tuesday, January 20th, we will begin four days of exams for Grades 9 - 11. It is very important for students to take the exam period seriously as these exams will count for 15-20% of the semester grade. Students should take the time to study sufficiently, seek extra help if needed, use the full period to take the exam, and check their work carefully. If they complete their exam in less than the two-hour allotted time, they should study for another exam or have with them silent reading material. Students must stay in the classroom for the entire two-hour exam period.
Under the Important Informaton banner on the right, you will find a copy of the Exam Schedule which will allow you and your son/daughter to plan accordingly. Please be aware that if a student has a study hall, they are required to go to that study hall during the corresponding period if they are on campus. Students in study honors need not attend study hall unless they wish. In addition, if your son or daughter has a study hall, and you wish to excuse them so they may arrive for a later exam or leave early, you may do so by calling Micky Achilli. However, if this occurs, they should remain off campus until their next exam. Only Chapin List students are allowed to leave campus during lunch break.
A reminder of the exam expectations:
