Midterm Assessments

In terms of logistics, the first testing session begins at 7:25a.m. and ends at 9:00a.m. The second testing session begins at 9:15a.m. and ends at 10:45a.m. Students are not allowed to leave the classroom prior to the end of the testing session. Students will be dismissed from school at 10:45a.m. If a student does not have an exam during the first or second session (if they are using bus transportation), they must report to the Commons, otherwise they are allowed to leave the building..
