    Senior Meeting, Friday, April 16, 9:15 a.m., Main Gym

    We have a meeting for all things SENIOR! You must be there in order to be ready for graduation!

     Herff Jones will also be there to deliver invitations.

     Topics covered:

    • Graduation specifics
    • Senior dress expectations
    • Grade deadlines
    • Spring Senior Events
    • Other information

    Semester Examination Exemptions (20-21 Only):

    Due to the nature of attendance changes with students choosing online or face-to-face learning, there has been a change to semester exam exemptions that will only be in effect for the current school year. The attendance factor has been removed and an exemption is based solely on their semester average. Students with an 85 and above will be exempt from their semester exam, and we will follow the same class period schedule that we have in the past (odd periods in fall for 9-11; even periods in spring for 9-11; seniors are eligible for all periods).
