Pilot Midterm Assessment Schedule

Dear Parent/Guardian,

            It is our sincere hope that this letter finds you well.   This year we will pilot a new midterm schedule.  Last year, the School Committee approved to increase the weight of our Midterm Assessments to 10% of the student’s final grade.  Since the exams account for a greater percentage of the student’s overall grade, we wanted to give students more time to prepare.  Subsequently, 60% of our students are involved in extracurricular activities after school and stay up late studying.  We wanted to create a schedule to accommodate our students, where they would start school on a delayed start schedule.
On Tuesday, January 20-Thursday, January 22, students will be in school from 10:30 am-1:51 pm.  We will be providing lunch to students since over 200 students stay after school on a daily basis.  On Friday, January 23, we will start school at our normal time of 7:17 am, but the students will be released at 10:50 am, with no lunch. 
            Bus transportation would be provided starting at approximately 9:30 am.  If your child takes the bus, they should ask their bus driver for an estimated pick up time for these three school days.  For students who would like to be dropped off earlier at school, the Media Center will be open from 7:30 am to 10:30 am.  In the Media Center, students will have an opportunity to sign up in the Media Center starting on Monday, January 12th to have access to computers, meet peers for small and focused study sessions, and silent studying.  Attached you will find a sample schedule with lunch assignments. 

Sincerely,


Kevin P. Braga, Principal
