! IB and AP Exams
IB and AP exams have started! The exams continue for three weeks through Friday, May 22nd. The complete schedule for exam sessions can be found here along with the required reading for all students concerning exam conduct such as what to bring (or not bring) to the exams.
More information about exams can be found on the honors page.
! PARCC Testing Schedule
Students who are participating in the PARCC testing (whose parents have not given permission for a test refusal) will receive instructions to report to a computer lab during their 4th, 5th, or 6th open periods on block days. Since there is a 55 minute common lunch period on block days, the period that students use for lunch on non-block days is a free period. This means students who will be testing will still have a 55 minute common lunch period, just not the additional 90 minute free period. That 90 minute period will be used to test students (whose parents have not given permission for a test refusal) so that there will be no further loss of instructional time for any student. This does mean, however, that testing will need to continue into May in order to have enough days to complete the testing without losing instruction. Math and language arts classes will take place for all students during all of the remaining PARCC testing window.
The updated schedule document can be viewed here.

! Royal Banner Senior Survey
The Royal Banner publishes a listing of where each senior is going to college (or if you aren't going to college, what you are doing) next year in our final issue of the year. Right now we have only received about 250 responses and will be sending the issue to print next week. So if you haven't yet, please fill out the survey as soon as possible, it takes about 30 seconds and prevents us from having to contact you individually. Please contact Lucia Rose with any questions about the form. Thanks!

! LOCKER INFORMATION FOR 2015-16 10th-12th GRADERS
We will not be offering or requiring current 9th-11th graders to sign up for new locker partners for the 2015-16 school year. Students will remain in their current locker with their current locker partner. The exception will be the first 77 incoming seniors to request a locker on the “senior balcony” area via our online locker request system.
If you will be a senior next year and would like to request a locker on the “senior balcony” area, go to the form and fill out one request per locker (meaning, only one request with both locker partners’ names and student ID#s). Remember, only the first 77 requests from incoming seniors will be granted.
All other students will remain in their current locker with their current locker partner.
Locker clean out and lock turn-in for current seniors will be Friday, May 15. Locker clean out and lock turn-in for current 9th-11th graders will be Friday, May 22.
