2.   A student who is late to an exam will be required to make up the exam on January 21, 2014.

3.   Makeup examinations will not be given unless the student has a valid excuse.  Any students who are not able to be here to take exams must have a parent or guardian call school to explain the reason for the absence and only extremely serious reasons for absence will be accepted.  Teachers will send copies of examinations for all absent students to the office.  If a student has a legitimate reason for being absent, the office will contact the teacher and make arrangements for the students to take the exam.

4.   Make-up examinations may be given during another exam time if a student has a scheduled study hall.

5.    Any student suspected of cheating on an exam will have his/her paper taken, be sent directly to the office, and may receive a zero.

Students who miss examinations intentionally will not receive credit for that course.  In order to receive credit for a course, the examination must be taken unless otherwise waived by the instructor or an administrator.
