FINAL EXAMS SCHEDULE

FINAL EXAMS SCHEDULE

May 15, 2017

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The school year is winding down and Second Semester Final Exams (see schedule below) are coming up for Middle and Upper School students.

Upper School students (grades 9-11) have three days of exams, May 23-25, with dismissal at 1 pm. Middle School students will have exams on May 24 and 25 with a regular schedule of classes on Tuesday, May 23 (dismissal at 2:45 pm).

Parents/Guardians of exam students are asked to have their children at either Ogilby Hall (for Middle School) or Griffiths Theatre (for Upper School) in plenty of time to allow for a 7:45 am start to the testing day.

With Middle and Upper School exams in progress, and our desire to avoid any possible noise or disruptions in the area of the exams, around Griffith’s Theatre, there will be no late start to school on Thursday, May 25.

Lower School will have normal class schedules May 23-25 with dismissal at 2:45 pm with no late start to school on Thursday, May 25.

Please note that Griffiths Hall will not be available for the families of students to have lunch May 23-25. All who normally have lunch at Griffiths are asked to please go to the picnic tables at Neutral and the Canteen.

For a daily list of school activities for the dates of May 22 onward to the end of the school year, and graduation on May 30, please see the schedule below.

Best wishes to all of our students for a successful finish to the school year!

Sincerely,

Todd F. Wyks

Headmaster
