Dear Middle School Families,

Lunch Next Week, December 7-11
Please let us know which days your children will want boxed lunches during this upcoming week by completing this form.

Exam Week Information for Grades 7-8
Please have your children confirm with their teachers if they will be virtual or in-person for exams by Wednesday, December 9th. This will help teachers to prepare and to administer exams efficiently.

Exams will be given as follows:

  • Monday, December 14th: Math (full day of school)
  • Tuesday, December 15th: Social Studies & Science (day ends at noon)
  • Wednesday, December 16th: Language Arts & World Language (day ends at noon)
  • Thursday, December 17th: Exam Makeup Day, Optional Testing Day for Virtual Students

Grade 6 Schedule Change for the Week Before Winter Break
Although almost all students in grades 7-8 will be on campus this final week for exams, sixth-graders will remain at 50% capacity for December 14-16 and will continue to follow a Maroon/Gray rotation schedule. Sixth-graders will participate in a modified schedule on those days, as I wrote in my previous letter. Without exams, we have greater flexibility to do other activities with both groups in a more focused way. Thursday, December 17th, will remain a non-school day for sixth-graders. See schedule below.

Have a great weekend!
