CLASS OF 2023 IMPORTANT SCHOOL DATES
Academic Course Work: May 12
English Final Papers are due by Friday, May 12 at 11:59pm. All Senior work must be submitted and graded by midnight (Friday, May 12) except for final exams/projects/presentations.
There will not be a “no testing time period” for Seniors, but once a final experience is completed classwork can be given and graded but further homework (work to complete, additional reading, preparation for a quiz or test) should not be extensive. This will allow students time to work on other presentations, and projects and prepare for final exams.
Senior Final Exams: May 15 and May 16
A final exam experience for Seniors needs to occur on one of these days. Seniors need to be present in class on May 15 and 16, only for final presentations, review days, or final exams/papers. This will be determined by the classroom teacher. Seniors will be able to come and go as they please but must enter and exit the lobby doors after school begins at 8:00. Some sample scenarios: 1) A Senior could have a review day on Monday, and the exam on Tuesday and therefore would be expected in class both days, 2) A final paper could be turned in on May 12 and not need to attend class on May 15 and 16 since the final experience is complete, 3) Final presentations are held May 15 and 16 and all students are expected to be in class all days to present or critique other student presentations, 4) A final exam is given May 16 and students do not attend on May 15.
Please note: If a final paper is due on one of the exam days the paper will be accepted between 8:00am-2:30pm on that day. It needs to be handed to the individual classroom teacher.
