Getting Ready for Finals
Your students will spend most of this week getting ready for Finals Week. This can be a pretty stressful time, especially if they haven't been through Finals Week before. As always, be there for them and make sure that they are continuing to eat, drink, and sleep as close to their normal pattern as possible.

  • Moving a Test Within the Finals Schedule:  With approval from the teacher, finals can be moved from one day to another as long as it is within the 3 day finals schedule.  This is especially helpful if your student has three difficult finals in one day. These request forms are available in the counselors’ offices and due back by Monday, December 12. Students must complete all of their finals before the Christmas Break. If students fail to do this, they earn a zero for the final exam. 
  • Final Exam Days are Open Campus. Students are responsible for being in class on time.
  • Lunch:  During finals, students have Open Lunch.  Our cafeteria will stock sandwiches, chips and other light lunch options if students opt to stay at school. Lunch may also be ordered to be delivered to the school and paid for on delivery by the student(s).  (Please remind your student to tip the delivery person). Often times, a group will go in together to place an order.  Students are also welcome to go get food and bring it back to school to eat while they get in some last minute studying.
