To summarize, we will still have two finals per day, and it will still take four days to complete all of them. This year, however, we will have full school days for the first two exam days rather than the early release days. This is not due to COVID-19, but rather the quota of hours we need to meet in order to have finals prior to winter break. During the full days of school, you will use your last two shortened periods as review time for the rest of your finals. The last two days of exams will still be half days. 

Regarding the finals’ weight and structure, you will need to contact your teachers about how or if they are altering their exams. 

Don’t forget to study! Finals start next Friday, December 18!
