High School Exam Schedule - On May 23, 24 and 28, 2013 second semester exams are scheduled to be given at Archbold High School. The exam schedule will run similar to the first semester exam schedule. Below is the schedule for second semester exams.
*Make Up Exam - 12:40-1:55
* Students needing to make up an exam may do so during this period.
** Students have the option of arriving at school for their first exam of the day, and leaving after their last exam of the day.
May 24 and 28, the last regularly scheduled exam is at 12:30 p.m. The cafeteria will not serve lunch these two days. However, students will have 10 minutes between exams. I would encourage them to pack a light lunch or snack to have between exam periods.
On May 24 and 28, students have the option of not arriving at school until their first exam of the day, and they may leave only after their last exam of the day. On May 23 students may leave after their last exam.
Students who miss an exam due to an excused absence will need to make arrangements with the teacher to take the exam during the scheduled make-up exam period.
Teachers will be available the entire day for questions and concerns students may have regarding exams.

Absence Policy - Attention Students and Parents: Under the new proposal, a student is allowed to have a parent write notes to excuse absences up to five (5) days in a semester, the sixth and subsequent absences in that semester will require a medical note. If one is not provided, the absence will be considered unexcused. There are many students who have reached their five days for this semester. If you are one of them, you need medical notes.
Cafeteria Accounts - During the school year this year students will need to turn in their money to the high school office by 10:30 AM in order to have the money deposited into their account for that day. No money will be taken during the lunch line. Parents who do not want their child letting other students using their lunch accounts, need to notify Mrs. Babcock. Question can be emailed to Mrs. Babcock.
