The last day for seniors to attend their regularly scheduled classes is Wednesday, May 15th.  (Virtual Students last day is Friday, May 17th)

Seniors taking end-of-course exams will report to the Kiva at the start of the school day on Thursday, May 16th.  

All online GenNet or STRIDE classes must be completed and submitted by the end of the day on Thursday, May 17th. 

Seniors eligible for exam exemptions must meet ALL the following criteria:

  • 2 unexcused absences or fewer per class
  • 2 tardies or fewer per class
  • Must have a B- (80%) or better in the course
  • Parents must sign off on the exemption (even if you are 18 years old)
