During midyear assessments next week, students will not be allowed to review with teachers, and all performing arts rehearsals and sports games and practices will be cancelled.
“After assessments begin, as a matter of fairness, students who have yet to take an assessment may not review with teachers or students who have taken that assessment,” upper school deans said in an email to all upper school students. “As a result, it is imperative that you begin your studying early enough to get assistance from your teachers as needed.”
Students will not be permitted to reschedule assessments due to planned absences, and students who miss assessments due to illness should make up tests later in the week if possible or reschedule to take the missed exams before Friday, Jan. 9.
Teachers can decide what the material to include on the exam, whether or not it will be cumulative, and its impact on students’ grades.
The exam schedule will be as follows:
