Semester Exam Week Information


First semester exams for the 2019-20 school year will be given Monday-Wednesday, December 16-18, 2019, with make-up exam days reserved for Thursday and Friday, December 19 and 20. Students should only come to school for a scheduled exam on these dates. Students are not required to be at school if they do not have a scheduled exam. All students (grades 9-12) are expected to be in attendance for their scheduled exams.


Exams are held in teacher classrooms unless the teacher provides different instructions. Exams are scheduled to be one hour and thirty minutes in length and take place during the exam period listed on the semester exam schedule. If a student has a double-period class, teachers will announce which exam period to attend. It is the student’s responsibility to check this schedule carefully. Taking semester exams early (exams scheduled before their actual date and time) is not permitted.


Students must arrive at the classroom on time, ready to begin their exam at the scheduled start time. If a student arrives more than 5 minutes late for an exam, they will not be permitted to take the exam and must gain approval to schedule the missed exam for one of the make-up exam periods.


Semester exams are given at the end of each semester and are a significant portion of the final grade in each course. Students who do not take an exam may not receive full credit for the course. Please visit the Semester Exams web page to learn more about semester exam week at ETHS.
