High school students are expected to be on time to exams. Students may not be permitted into the testing area once all other students have reached the minimum seat time as per New York State Education Department regulations. Morning exams begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. and afternoon exams begin at 12:00 p.m. Students are required to sit for a minimum of two hours for all exams. All book bags, backpacks, purses, cell phones, i-Pods and other electronic devices will not be allowed into the testing area. If an electronic device is found in the testing area, the student will be removed and his/her test will be disqualified. If a student brings any of these items to school, the items will be retained in the front office; however, the school district will not be responsible for electronic or valuable personal items. All valuable items should be left at home.

On Tuesday, January 24 through Friday, January 27 high school students will be permitted to use our office phones to make arrangements for transportation, if necessary. Buses will run their regular morning routes. In addition, buses will run at the conclusion of morning and afternoon testing sessions: 10:15 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 2:20 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.

A healthy breakfast and lunch will be served each day. Please be sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and comes prepared to do their best! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the guidance office at 629-3302.
