Saura Weekly Updates - January 7, 2018














Exam Schedule
Exams will be January 8-12. We will dismiss around 12:30 pm after testing is complete on exam days.

Monday, January 8 - 1st Period Exams
Tuesday, January 9 - 2nd Period Exams
Wednesday, January 10 - 3rd Period Exams
Thursday, January 11 - 4th Period Exams
Friday, January 12 - Make-up Exams


Students should make every effort to be present on exam days. Students cannot receive credit for courses with state exams if they do not take the required exams. We do have a few courses in PE, foreign language, arts and a couple of other elective courses that allow students to be exempt from the exam based on grades and absences. Teachers of these courses will inform students of their exemption status.


Chromebook Information for Exams

Students who have checked out a Chromebook need to bring it each day for exams. Please make sure your Chromebook is fully charged and updated. Also bring your charger to the exam in case it is needed. We do not have extra Chromebooks so it is important for students who have one checked out to bring it to the exam. Students who did not check out a Chromebook will need to report to the library on the morning of their exam to check one out for the exam period. Students who have been using personal devices will also need to check out Chromebooks on exam days as students may not take exams on personal devices.  Students are asked to drop their Chromebooks off at their classroom between 8:00 and 8:20 so teachers can prepare them for the exams.


Breakfast on Exam Days

On exam days, students will be in their testing locations from 8:30 am until dismissal. Classes will be called to lunch once exams are finished, but there will not be Second Chance Breakfast. Students needing breakfast on exam days need to plan to arrive by 8:15 and visit the cafeteria to get breakfast before testing.


Yearbook Information
Don't forget that the price of yearbooks will go up to $75 during second semester.  Order yours now to get the reduced price of $65.  Your can purchase yearbooks online at yearbookforever.com or at school.   

Senior Ad information was sent home recently.  If you are interested in purchasing a senior ad to commemorate your senior year, you can create them online or bring the information to school.  See Ms. Alyssa Smith in D6/C7 for complete information.
