  • At long last, the SOL schedule is officially over!!  Way to go, everybody, we made it!! [clap]
    .
    However — there are still some tests that need to be completed.  SOL make-ups and retakes for the World Geo and Civics exams will be held TODAY in the library following TA.
    .
    Test-takers are reminded that you may ONLY bring the following items: a pencil or pen, a book to read, and earbuds ONLY if you have an approved audio accommodation for the test. You may NOT bring: backpacks or cinch sacks; any electronic devices; nor any water or snacks. And of course, there is zero tolerance for CHEATING.
    .
    The rest of the school will be on a NORMAL schedule today, but as  always, you are reminded to be quiet and respectful in the halls — ESPECIALLY when passing the library between classes. Teachers will be monitoring to ensure that there are no disruptions. Good luck on the SOLs, wolves!
