Exams for freshmen through juniors will be next week Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, May 22-24. Teachers will be in the building Monday morning so they will be available to answer questions even though the exams won’t start until noon on that day. The last exam will conclude at noon on Wednesday. Students may come to school just before their first exam for a day, and they may leave after concluding their last exam for a day. Students may not be coming and going to school during the exam time. The library will be open for quiet study and the gymnasium for group study.
