Semester End & Final Assessments

Final Assessments

The countdown to the end of the year is on, Wolverines!  The last day of classes for all students (except for our Life Skills students) will be Friday, June 17th.

Final Semester 2 Assessments (i.e. exams, interviews, in-class activities), will be held from June 20th to the 24th. Students will complete one final assessment each day, based on this schedule:

Monday, June 20 – Period 1 Final Assessment

Tuesday, June 21 – Period 2 Final Assessment

Wednesday, June 22 – Period 3 Final Assessment

Thursday, June 23 – Period 4 Final Assessment

Friday, June 24 – Assessment Conflict Day

Monday, June 27 – Student Support Day

Tuesday, June 28 – P.A. Day (No Students Attend)

Wednesday, June 29 – P.A. Day (No Students Attend)

Conflict Day is for any student who was ill or could not attend an assessment for a medical appointment.  Students and parents must contact the Vice Principal or Principal as soon as possible if they cannot attend a Final Assessment on their assigned day, due to illness or a medical appointment, so arrangements can be made.  Students may not miss a final assessment for a vacation, part-time job, or another non-essential reason, or they may be assigned a zero for this Final Assessment, which will impact final grades.  Only students in our Den Life Skills class may attend on Student Support Day.  This day is also for students who need a day of support to complete and submit any assignments required for credit completion.

Final Assessments will begin at 9:30 a.m. each day, unless otherwise determined by the teacher to accommodate assessments such as individual interviews.  Bus transportation will operate as usual at the beginning and end of day, although parents/guardians may also pick up their students immediately following their assessments.  The school cafeteria and library will be open for quiet independent study only.

Students are also reminded to clean out their lockers, and to return any library books, school resources, and Chromebooks before leaving for the summer.  Good luck on your Final Assessments, Wolverines!
