Our school policy with testing states that the following
day that you return to school you must take the test. Any
missed tests or quizzes on the day of the exam will
only be made up after 2:30.
Special Notice

for all students involved. Also, involved
students will not receive extra-credit
assignments.

said device.
Closing

will prepare you for the Global History &
Geography Regents in June.
