Senior High Midterm Assessment and January Regents Exam Schedule

Dear Parents and Guardians:

This letter is to help inform you and your student(s) for the upcoming Senior High (grades 9-12) midterm assessment week and the January Regents exams. Midterm assessment week takes place Tuesday, January 22 through Friday, January 25, 2019. The Junior High (grades 7 & 8) will not be given midterm exams because they will be given state assessments in the spring.

Senior High students are required to be present and be on time for their scheduled examination periods, which are indicated on the testing schedule (click here).  Reminder: students who want to retake any Regents exam(s) need to sign up in the Guidance Office by Friday, January 18, 2019.

During the week of Senior High midterm assessments, all Junior High students (grades 7 & 8) are required to be in attendance the entire day. In the morning, Junior High students will attend regular classes using a modified time schedule and in the afternoon, they will participate in unique project based learning experiences called “Genius Week.”

All CTE/BOCES and off-site classes and programs will be held as usual all week. Buses for these students will be available so that students may continue to go to their programs. Please have your son/daughter speak with his/her bus driver if he/she is not planning to ride the bus. If there is an exam conflict with an off-site class, students should discuss it with the teachers.

The buses will run on their regular schedule. We will also include a 10:30 a.m. bus for students who finish their assessments in the morning. Breakfast and lunch will be served daily.

Please keep in mind that Senior High midterm assessment week is an important week as it is the culminating state exam for some Regents courses and also a chance to assess the understanding of other courses in the first semester.

Thank you for your support in encouraging your child to take this testing period seriously. If you have any questions, feel free to contact your child's teacher or our Guidance Department.

Please note, all students will return to a regular full day schedule on Monday, January 28, 2019.

Sincerely,

Francis Cocozza, Principal
