Attention AP exam takers!

This is a reminder about what the handbook says regarding attendance on AP exam days:

Students who take an AP exam are encouraged to attend all classes that do not coincide with testing time on the day of the exam.  AP exam-takers are expected to communicate absences due to testing to their teachers and, along with their teachers, create a plan to make up missed work. AP exam-takers will not be required to take any additional assessments on the day of their AP exam.

Good luck on testing day!
