Semester Exam Information 2019-20

November 19, 2019

FHS Semester Exams will be given the last 3 days of semester one:

December 18, 19, and 20. 

All exams are mandatory, and it is critical that students are here on time on testing days.


Procedural Guidelines

1.    Written examinations will be given in all subject areas, and these examinations will include both objective and subjective test items.  Each exam will be administered in an 85-minute block as outlined in the schedule.

2.    Teachers will administer tests only during the scheduled exam periods.  Teachers will not give exams early or out of order from the schedule. 

3.    Students will not be permitted to leave the exam block for any reason. Students will remain in the testing room for the entire period.

4.    Remember the 3 Ps: be Present, Prompt, and Prepared for all of your exams.  The semester exam score is a significant portion of your final grade in each course.  If you do not take an exam, then you will earn a grade of 0 (zero) which is an “F” for the exam score.  Take all exams seriously – do you best!

5.    The building will operate on a standard bell schedule Wednesday and Thursday.  Friday’s bell schedule will be an Early Release bell schedule as it is on every Friday. School busses will run on their regular schedules on exam days. 

6.    All school policies will remain in effect and be enforced during exam week, including dress code and appropriate use of technology/electronic devices.  On exam days, students are required to be under the direct supervision of FHS faculty or staff members during all scheduled exam times, study periods, classes, and lunch periods.  This includes students who are Aides for teachers or offices.  Students are reminded not to bring blankets or pillows with them on exam days.  Disciplinary consequences resulting from inappropriate behavior during exam week may be administered on exam days and can also be assigned in the days following exams.  

7.    There should be absolutely no hall traffic during exam time.  Students must be in their classrooms.  Again, teachers will NOT write hall passes for students during exam periods. 

8.    If you are tardy on exam days, then you must enter the building using the main entrance doors in the front of the building as usual.   All other doors will be locked.  After you sign in at the Main Office, you will be escorted to your classroom where your teacher will decide whether you will take the exam at that time or if you must take the exam during the make-up time.  If you must wait to take the exam during a make-up exam period, then you will be expected to work silently (study, read, or work on other assignments) while the rest of the class tests.  It is the student’s responsibility to schedule the make-up exam with the teacher.   

9.    All absences require a doctor’s note to be excused, except for absences for family travel which must be pre-approved through the attendance office with appropriate paperwork filed prior to the absence.  (Contact Asst. Principal, Mr. Anticoli, regarding pre-approval of these absences.)  For all other exam day absences, the attendance office must receive a telephone call from your parent and a doctor’s note for your absence to be excusedExams can only be made up if an absence is excused by a doctor’s note.

Makeup Exams: 

    • Make-up exams take place during the 5th period study/make-up times scheduled each exam day.  Two standard-length make-up exam sessions are also scheduled on Friday, December 20.   The make-up exam periods are NOT to be used to take parts of exams early unless prior approval is granted by an administrator for extenuating circumstances.
    • Should a student be approved to take an exam before December 18 or after December 20, the student must arrange with the appropriate teacher to take the exam at a mutually agreeable date/time outside the scope of standard class time. (In most cases this means the student would need to take them after school.)  
    • The final date to make-up all portions of an exam is Tuesday, January 7, 2020 at 3:00pm. This deadline will be strictly enforced.  Any exam not completed by this time will be recorded as a 0 (zero).  It is the student’s responsibility to schedule make-up exams with their teachers.   

If you have any questions about exams, feel free to contact FHS at 879-3611.
