All 11th Graders Take the ELA Exam: On Tuesday, January 22nd there is an early dismissal @10:15 am. We will be sending out a shortened day schedule soon. All 11th graders will be taking the COMP ELA exam at noon on this day, they cannot leave the building at dismissal but can bring a lunch or may be able to get lunch in the middle school cafe. (TBD) Any student who is scheduled to take an exam that week will be receiving a letter at home.
Friday is a Regents Exam Scoring Day: Friday of the exam week there will be no students in the building so that teachers can have time to score the exams.
New Cell Phone Policy: Also, we have received notification from NYSED regarding cell phone and other electronic devices during exams. Please make your students who are taking exams aware of this policy as follows.
“There are no electronic devices of any kind allowed during exams. Admission to an exam shall be denied to any student who is in possession of a cell phone or other prohibited electronic device and refuses to relinquish it. If you are found with device the principal may invalidate your exam per the New York State Board of Education.”
