These days have been designated as Regents Days to enable school districts to administer Regents Exams. Only those high school students scheduled to take exams are to report to school on these days.  Refer to schedule listed below. 

  1. All lockers will be cleaned out and left open on January 18, 2019. Students will only be allowed to enter and exit through the main entrance by the office.   A teacher will monitor the door during the entire day.  All exit doors will be locked and monitored.
  2. Students will enter the building and then will wait in the auditorium until 15 minutes prior to the exam.
  3. Students must pass through a checkpoint to ensure that they are only bringing items necessary for the examination (pens, pencils, calculators, lunch etc.).  No cell phones or other electronic devices may be taken into the examination room.  They will be collected as students enter the building.
  4. All lunch bags and purses must be opened and shown to teachers on duty when entering the building. These must remain in your possession at all times.
  5. Book bags will not be allowed in or outside the school building.
  6. Students will only be allowed in examination areas. The rest of the building is off limits.
  7. When students are allowed to leave exam rooms, they must be escorted to the exit by the office or to the auditorium to await rides.
  8. Students should leave the building between morning and afternoon exams. Plan on lunch at a different location. If this is not possible, students should bring a lunch.  Students may wait in the designated area for an afternoon exam or ride.

These procedures may be modified depending on circumstances.

If for some reason, students taking an exam must evacuate the building, the exams will be secured.  If possible students will be allowed to return to finish the exams.  However, any student who speaks during the emergency will not be able to complete the exam.  The exam will be picked up and graded as is.  No deviation from this procedure can be allowed.

Students should try to arrange their own transportation where necessary.  Bus service will be available in accordance with the Transportation Schedule listed at the end of this article.

Afternoon exams start at 12:00.

Students with only afternoon exams need to arrange their own transportation to the exam, but may ride the bus home. If a ride cannot be arranged, students may come in on the morning bus run and wait in the assigned room until the exam starts.  The uniform admission deadline is 12:45 p.m.

If the weather is bad, a two-hour delay may be used.  With a two-hour delay, buses will pick up students at home two hours later than normal.  Exam start times would be adjusted accordingly.
