School Officials Re-Schedule Exams

The weather situation this week is playing havoc with the originally scheduled testing of students in the county school system. Officials say that adjustments have had to be made to the end of the semester review and exam schedules for high school courses. What that means is that the semester review exam for all high school classes will now be held on Tuesday, January 4th. Additional exams for morning and afternoon classes will be held on Wednesday and Thursday of the fi rst week back in January, with the official start of "spring" semester and the third nine weeks grading period beginning on Friday, January 7th. School officials say Fall Early Graduates will still need to take semester exams as scheduled, although special circumstances will be considered by request on an individual basis by school administrators. Officials say Friday will remain a day with a 10 am dismissal -- if schools are open at all. And they say further adjustments will be made and announced in the event school closures occur during the week of January 4, 2011. Reports Cards for the 2nd Nine Weeks grading period and the Fall 2010 Semester will be distributed on Tuesday, January 11, 2011, but again, that date is subject to change in the event school closures are necessary during the week of January 4th.
